40 Weeks: noun. 1. Nine and a quarter months. 2. The average length of a normal pregnancy. 3. That pinnacle day of pregnancy after which a dramatic increase in boredom, frustration and annoying phone calls will often be suffered.
40 Weeks. It’s that magical day in your pregnancy when you have supposedly reached the end. For forty weeks (and possibly longer) you have been charting, measuring, counting and ultimately, waiting. So by 40 weeks of pregnancy the waiting should be over. The baby should be here. The dues have been paid.
