The Bump Expert

It’s most likely your baby really be born right around your due date. Unless it’s a scheduled delivery, you can’t know for sure, but check out these recent stats.

6% of babies were born late (week 42 and after)

12% arrived early (before week 37)

82% showed up on time (between weeks 37 and 41)
