Fun Friday Fact – You could be pregnant for over a year!

Scary but true. 

As we all know, most pregnancies last around nine months and if you go too far over your due date your doctor will induce labour. However, it is actually possible to be pregnant for a whole year!

The worlds longest pregnancy happened in 1945 when a young woman was pregnant for a total of 375 days. When the baby eventually arrived it was just under seven pounds and perfectly healthy. 

It certainly puts being a few days overdue into perspective, doesn’t it!
