Women get pregnant every day
finally a documentary
joins them on that journey.
You’re pregnant – Congratulations! Get ready for:
Are you early in the process? Late? Did you miss something? Ack! What was that? Was that normal? What is normal? What’s happening to my body? And my baby?
Let’s take a breath. 40 Weeks is a movie that answers these questions and gives you a window into the lives of a group of real women dealing with the same changes you are. Journey through the weekly milestones and information of pregnancy while discovering the community you are now part of.
40 Weeks has partnered with the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), HealthyWomen.org, and the March of Dimes to provide expertise and support as you journey through your pregnancy from announcement to birth.
We invite you to get to know these women as they reach pregnancy milestones, learn about their bodies, and reach out for information. We follow each of them throughout their pregnancy and see how they deal with the normalcies of the process and also face unexpected setbacks.
“I swear I feel my stomach growing occasionally. Friday I just felt like my stomach was getting bigger and someone said 'No you’re just more aware because you know what that feels like.' But I think I’m going to become a blimp.”
“My husband and I met in our adolescence and I want to teach my child what Jose taught me while we were growing up, which is to be open minded about the world.”
“I became a parent when I got pregnant. You can’t help but feel that way, you’re already hosting this baby in your body. Your sleeping patterns have changed, your eating patterns have changed, so your life has already fundamentally changed.”
“I see myself having a boy. I’ve always envisioned a little two year old with a mohawk, I always have, but it probably will be a girl and I’m perfectly fine with a girl.”
