Thanks for the feedback!
Yes, if proper care is taken
If the baby's femur length measures a week and 3 days shorter than the BPD which measurement is used to determine a due date?
Answer They are both compared with your date calculated from your last period. If you don't know your dates the BPD willprobably be used. You will probably have… another scan to check there is good growth. It also depends when the scan is done,the later the scan the less the measurements correlate. You might also have a very active baby making absolutely accurate measurements difficult. 10 days is well within the margin of error for scans. Don't forget tht babies can be born anytime from 3 weeks before to 2 weeks after the due date so it is not set in stone.
At 31 weeks, a baby would normally survive, however would probably need to be in an incubator for a while and have some help breathing
Answer i had my second son at 27 weeks pregnant. He is now 17 and perfectly healthy. You would never have guessed he was premature.
Yes. Of course it varies, but babies born at 31 weeks have a very high chance of surviving. Babies born on week 25+ are surviving (although some sadly don´t).
Highly likely - due to advances in medicine and post-natal care. Babies have been born much earlier and still survived. yes but they are considered premature.
Born 18 weeks premature, on 7/13/10 at 1 Lb. 9 Ounces and 11 Inches Long http://preemie.info/cms/modules/news/ Finally, we have two cases at 18 weeks. Note: For a listing …of eleven such early survivors, see the 1989 edition of Abortion Questions and Answers (Willke. Hayes Pub. Co. pp. 60, 61). http://www.christianliferesources.com/?library/view.php&articleid=1253 A number of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they were younger than 24 weeks -- the upper age limit for abortions. The study, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, revealed that some of the babies who initially survived terminations were only in the 18th week of pregnancy and more than half were under 22 weeks. http://health.dailynewscentral.com/content/view/0001453/40/ A NUMBER of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they are younger than 24 weeks - the upper age limit for abortions. Some were able to move around, breathe normally and even cry out. Many lived for more than an hour, and one survived for four and a-half hours. http://www.thefreelibrary.com/The+babies+who+are+born+alive+after+18+weeks-a0134883445
A baby can survive at 24 weeks. we have better technology these days where anything is possible. If you had a baby at 32 weeks she will most likely have to stay in the h…ospital till she is considered full term, or better yet breathe and eat on its own.
Don't think so. From week 24 they can be saved, but w20 is awfully early. As NICU care has improved over the last 40 years, viability has reduced to approximately 24 weeks, al…though rare survivors have been documented as early as 21 weeks. The first thing survival will depend on is being in the right hospital for the birth - after that it depends entirely on the number of complications following birth and how well the baby pulls through each of them.
it depends.probably 1 out of 100 babies are born right on due date
Yes. The 50% survival rate is around 26 weeks so a baby born 10 wweks pre-term at 27 weeks has a decent chance of survival
Yes, but it won't be easy. It would need much work in the hospital to keep it alive. That said, I have a distant relative by marriage who was born at 23wks, and is a healthy b…eautiful young lady. Same as above with me, I was the same situation and I am perfectly fine. I will start at a community college in the fall as a Criminal Justice major. I spent a LOT of time in the hospital when I was born @ 1lb and 13 oz and it was really hard on my parents, but the hardship will most likely relieve itsself in time.
Absolutely. My daughter was born at 33.5 and had no complications. She stayed in the NICU for 16 days to learn to nurse and use a bottle (baby's aren't coordinated enough to d…o this until 35 weeks). She was 4 pounds 15 ounces---almost 5lb, the size of many twins! My water broke so I had 2.5 days on bedrest in the hospital waiting. They gave me a shot of steroids which could have helped her develop her lungs. They say girls develop faster in the womb, but my friend had a boy born at 33.5 weeks exactly the same situation, no problems, home in over two weeks. Now it is awful to leave the hospital each day without your baby, emotionally very very tough, but the baby should be fine. Do not worry.
no of course not
The child has a very small chance of survival.
Yes, the worlds longest recorded pregnancy was a whopping 375 days (53.5 weeks). Click on "Prodigiuos pregnancy" under "Related links" below.
