40 weeks

You'll have an appointment at 40 weeks

Your midwife should give you more information about what happens if your pregnancy lasts longer than 41 weeks.

Your midwife should:

  • Use a tape measure to measure the size of your uterus.
  • Measure your blood pressure and test your urine for protein.
  • Membrane sweep, also known as a cervical sweep to bring on labour will be discussed.
