that is my understanding that a baby's gestational period is anywhere from 38-42 weeks the 42 week being all the way up to 42 weeks 6 days then there is concern that the placenta may be getting old so they would likely run tests.

I personally am only 2 days past my due date so i am not concerned :-)

My first pg, I was told my placenta was aging... I couldn't figure out how a viable organ gets old in a matter of days... I mean, blood still flows to it, etc. They acted like every day, the whole thing was just rotting...
