Nature: When your ovary release an egg it contains something called a corpus luteum cyst. This produces Progesterone as it waits for ovulation. The corpus luteum dies if it is not fertilized.

I am 31 weeks & cervix is 2.6cm & on progesterone pessaries. I've had intermittent reduced movt been checked all ok. How likely am I to make to 38 weeks

Pregnancy: This is impossible to answer. There are so many variables that go into when a woman will deliver, I gave up trying to determine when years ago.

Other women with a history of normal term deliveries have their water break and deliver at 33 weeks. Good Luck. ...Read more
