No matter where you are in your pregnancy, undoubtedly you have a million questions and concerns. What was that? Was that normal? What is normal? What’s happening to my body? And my baby?
Relax and take a breath! 40 Weeks is a movie that answers these questions while bringing you into the lives of a diverse group of real women dealing with the same issues you are. We invite you to get to know our families as we follow each of them throughout their pregnancy and see how they deal with the commonnplace pieces of the process,as well as unexpected setbacks. Experience the weekly milestones of pregnancy with this wonderful community you are now part of.
40 Weeks is proud to partner with the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), HealthyWomen.org, and the March of Dimes to provide expertise through your pregnancy from announcement to birth.
Jessica and James Todd
“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.”

“Every time we go to the doctor’s office they’re like, ‘Oh my God, it won’t sit still!’ So it’s definitely my baby because Mauricio and I don’t sit still very long.”
“All I could focus on was that heartbeat. From then on, I wanted to be the best me that I could possibly be so that heartbeat could stay as strong as it was.”
“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.”
