Correct Answer - Option 3 : 36-38 weeks

The correct answer is 36-38 weeks.

The average length of human pregnancy is 36-38 weeks.

  • Pregnancy lasts for about 280 days or 40 weeks.
    • A preterm or premature baby is delivered before 37 weeks of your pregnancy.
    • Extremely preterm infants are born 23 through 28 weeks.

  •  In humans, the gestation period is for about 9 months, or approximately 280 days.
    • It is calculated from the incipience of their last menstrual period.
    • As per studies, a mere 4% of women deliver in this duration and around 68%-70% deliver in 10 days of their estimated due date.
