A pregnancy is considered full term at 39 weeks. This means it’s best not to schedule your baby’s delivery before that point unless there’s a medical reason to do so. On average, pregnancies last about 40 weeks (280 days) from the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period. That’s how your practitioner will most likely estimate your due date.
