In the US approximately 28% of pregnancies deliver in the week of the due date or within the week following the due date (40-41 weeks pregnancy.) Another 5 % of births occur in the second week past the due date (42 weeks.) So it’s possible that you may have about a 30% chance of still being pregnant past your due date. For some women, the continued uncertainty of not knowing when they’ll go into labor is, understandably, both frustrating and concerning. Though the overall chance of an untoward fetal outcome (including neonatal illness, intensive care admissions and stillbirth) are low, studies do show these risks to increase as pregnancy continues past 41-42 weeks.
