First pregnancy due date statistics
Common Questions and Answers about First pregnancy due date statistics
I am young so I am very scared about this but now that I know what the baby is I am a little bit more excited. I hope that with each day I get more excited especially seeing my belly grow. I worry about after I have the baby if I will loose the weight I gained during.Although I was terribly sick and lost alot alot of weight I still worry about it. I am now back to the weight before I got pregnant and almost half way done, not quite but by week 20. It will be interesting.
A due date is just an estimate from the start of your last Period to 9mo. Its hard to say when exactly a woman conceived so doctors go by the start of your mentrual cycle. Not many actually deliver on their due date. But some do. With my first i was 38wks. With my second I was 37wks. & this pregnancy I'm 19wks 5 days & my anatomy scan showed that I was 17/18wks or baby is on small side. At my next appt my due date may change. Who knows.
Today is my due date...I'm sure I've already had the baby though. Even my first child was early. I dunno though, my last one was due New Years Day and she was born New Years Eve...maybe it'll be born on Independence Day...what a celebration that would be. Hopefully I'm holding a beautiful baby boy in my arms right now! I hope its a boy. I have 2 girls and 2 boys from a previous marriage and their father has nothing to do w/ them. Eric is such a great father to them.
Statistics show for most first time mom's we go over our due date most of the time. And it's because our body's haven't gone through all the changes and stretching. A due date is an estimate but from what I understand most first time mom's will go over their due date. But it doesn't mean you will but be prepared to go over just so you're not so disappointed if your due date comes and goes with no sign of baby yet.
I had c-section with first baby due to getting a fever from epiderl. My daughter was 8lbs. I want to have to have vbac this time but I have been told my baby is 10 pounds and unsafe for me to have a vbac. I was told his shoulders can get stuck etc...I'm currently 40 weeks and my doctor scheduled me for c section in a few days. I just need a second opinion please?
I have a second job as an event planner and feel like I am jinxing myself if I turn down jobs that will be around my duedate. Stupid, I know..... So, I am sort of putting these people on hold until the u/s are done!!!
-) my beta is at 544. That is the only number they gave me so I do not know what else I need to be looking out for. I am only 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant, I have been trying to change what it says on here but can't seems to change it. I go back to the fertility clinic on Wednesday for my second blood work. I am so excited!
Finally had my first scan today and was so happy when I saw that little heart beating, was so worried that something was going to be wrong. Can start looking forward now its the best news I've had all year. And def know I'm 12 weeks and 2 days.
If I O on schedule and have a 40 wk pregnancy I will be due on January 1. Not the ideal duedate as we were hoping to not deliver until January. I guess its something that I shouldnt bother worrying about until I get there. Just kindof curious what the likelihood of going past my due date at age 37 would be.
That's helpful. Thank you she says that the first day of my last period don't count? That confused me a little but she hasn't measured my tummy at all and she say I won't feel the baby move til its 1 pound. Iv obviously been checking things out online but im reading that its wrong? So I'm just confused she says my due date is January 10- February 16 she sent have an actual day.
First ultrasound went well...baby measured right on schedule 8wks 6days so duedate is still October 18th...heartbeat was 171...doc said to stop taking metformin and gave me prescription prenatals and iron pills...hope everything continues to go well...
