40th WEEK

Your Baby

There’s not much time left for delivery! Your baby can come into world any time now. You should visit your doctor often at this stage. Your doctor will observe your baby’s movements, breathing, muscle movements and amniotic fluid.

Again, in this period, the NST (non-stress test) is also performed as part of ultrasound screening.


You may also have a test where only NST and amniotic water are examined. Apart from your daily doctor check-ups, you must also constantly monitor the movements of your baby. If there is a decrease in movement, you must inform your doctor immediately.

If you calculated the estimated time of birth according to your last period, there might be a delay, because women sometimes ovulate later. Even if you’re sure about the date of birth, birth can be delayed without any reason. There should be no need to worry.
