Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

I'm over 40 weeks pregnant. Are there any natural ways for induction?

Not really.: Many things have been tried, particularly castor oil and evening primrose oil, but I have never been persuaded that any of them actually make a difference. You will certainly go into labor at some point, but you need to discuss with your doctor when the risks of waiting outweigh the risks of a medical induction. ...Read more

What dates would intercourse had to take place to get pregnant if my 40 weeks pregnacy started aug 3rd 2014, DD May 10th 2015?

What dates would intercourse had to take place to get pregnant if my 40 weeks pregnacy started aug 3rd 2014, DD May 10th 2015?

About 2 weeks after: About 2 weeks after the official start of a pregnancy is when conception happened. Intercourse would have been the day of conception, or often the one or two days before conception. In real life, this should not matter, as most women are trying to start a family with sex with only their husbands. So, if the official start date is Aug. 3, then the conception was Aug. 17, PLUS or MINUS one week. ...Read more

Universal mystery: Since the advent of time itself, mankind (&womankind alike) have wanted a way to initiate labor "naturally". Your induction will use a drug called Pitocin (oxytocin). However, labor contractions have been known to occur with orgasm which is harmless to the baby but enjoyable for all and who knows actual labor may result. (smile) ...Read more

If I was diagnoze with preeclampsia and I am pregnant can I deliver until 40 weeks? If not why?

If I was diagnoze with preeclampsia and I am pregnant can I deliver until 40 weeks? If not why?

Two patients: Ob providers often need to consider the risk and benefit of two patients--the expectant mom and the baby. If the pregnant woman is getting very sick quickly, then she might need to be delivered before the baby reaches term (hopefully after getting steroids if appropriate). If the condition of both mom and baby is stable and the pregnancy is preterm, the OB may discuss 'expectant management'. ...Read more
