I read this all the time on BG about Term being 37 weeks, and full term not being until 40 weeks.



Anyone got any good links that talk about this?



And yes, I already googled and I actually have found more things saying that full term starts at 37 weeks than not.

No help here really. My OB never says full term only term when referencing if I make it past 37 weeks.

According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), full-term is 40 weeks. To me, that's about as credible as it gets.



A pregnancy is considered full term at 40 weeks.

Only thing weird is that they go one to say:
Uterine contractions
