42 weeks pregnant … and you’re still with us! We feel for you. Many of us have experienced the same thing … we’ve gone past our due date, feel pressure from all sides and going through our own mental spin. Your midwife or obstetrician may be putting pressure on you to look at being induced which you might feel fine with or not.

Baby Center doesn’t have a post for 42 weeks pregnant while What to Expect does. Their post does discuss this weird period of Time …  being late. Of course, this topic is very confusing. When I was pregnant in 1970 there were no ultra-sounds and due dates were quite flexible. I had a number of friends who stayed pregnant for another few weeks and didn’t have a very big baby. Obviously ‘due date’ has become more defined and you’re in the middle of decision making for your pregnancy and your baby’s birth.
