Week 42 – Late delivery

Although it is perfectly normal for a baby to arrive past the due date, you and your baby will get some extra monitoring this week. When the baby is ready to meet you, chances are the skin will be dry, cracked, peeling or wrinkled due the protective vernix that was shed weeks ago in anticipation of a delivery. A tardy baby will also have longer nails, possibly longer hair and little or none of that lanugo. Since there’s a chance your placenta may not provide as much oxygen and nutrients to your baby, your doctor might recommend inducing labour to be safe.
