Can a baby stay in the womb for more than forty weeks?
yes it is possible
I'm guessing that you mean at 44weeks gestation - i.e. a month 'overdue'. While it's not common for caregivers to be comfortable witha woman continuing beyond 41-42 weeks gestation, due to fears of the placenta becoming less efficient and potentially compromising baby's well-being, it is a woman's choice whether to be medically induced or not. There are certainly historical cases of woman carrying babies well beyond their due dates. Another thing to consider is whether… Read More
babies are best held off to atleast 17 weeks to be given any solids. They get all their nutrients from the milk alone and that is best for them, ideally hold off to as near 24 weeks old to give solids. Tests have shown that feeding solids too soon can lead to digestive problems and bowel cancer in later life.
Yes a baby can see at the age of 3 weeks, but only objects no farther than a couple of inches away from them. And even then it is most likely blury and hard to make out what is being looked at.
of course not...definitely not!!! it can survive at 6 months possibly just about but 7 months it should be okay..
Yes, two week old babies can see.
I am not sure but I think yes because my baby sister's forehead is SO HOT ! It is a little bit of a fever though.
The normally accepted age of viability (the age a baby can survive outside the womb) is 25 weeks. There have been cases of babies surviving at 24 weeks but normally they do not. Even at week 25 babies face pretty big challenges.
Babies are born with about 20/400 vision. They do respond to patterns even though they are not clear.... so the general pattern of the human face (eyes, nose, mouth, oval shape) actually gets their attention more. Best vision is about 8 to 20 inches from the baby's eyes. They don't get much color discrimination for the first few months. If you are thinking they are smiling at you when you lean over them and makes… Read More
haha no its still very small and not large enough to kick against you its like the size of your index finger or even less depending.
266,000,0 babies are born in a week
There's nothing set in stone. Normally after 37 weeks a baby is concidered full term but could still have some unexpected complications. Before 37 weeks doctors are generally prepared for a baby who is likely to have complications but often even a 35 week baby will be delivered without complications.
Yes. Babies born after 36 weeks gestation are considered full term and are usually just fine.
No, most women feel the baby at 16 weeks. For the first pregnancy, 20 weeks or later is normal
21 weeks is at the very lowest limit of survival, only one or two babies in the world have lived Each additional day adds to the baby's chances. Babies born under 28 weeks and living also have a very high chance of ongoing medical problems and disability.
It all depends on your body.But that really shouldn't happen,if it does then the baby will be premature.
None. But their parents use plenty.
There is a possibility that the four week old babies would be interested in the new born pups but , ultimately the mother gerbil will protect the babies and keep them occupied. Also the pups usually sleep and maintain in a corner of a cage or tank.
The can see all colors, but unless something is within 10 inches of their face it becomes blurry.
I spend at least $50 and up depending on how much my son eats.
No. Usually you can tell the gender at 18 to 20 weeks.
No. You will probably see nothing at 3 weeks on a scan.
While it is certainly abnormal for baby to reach this milestone so quickly, it does happen. For instance, I was rolling over in a little under two weeks. Most babies, however, do not have complete control of their bodies yet, even though they might attempt to, it's not until a full roll has been completed that a baby has reached this. Usually, it takes around 3.5 months.
Yes, but not all the time. Because the air ways of babies are so immature, it doesn't take much for them to be partially blocked (say from a slight cold), causing some snoring. See a doctor if it concerns you or lasts more than a few days. Best to err on the side of caution for a 1-month-old baby.
No, that's a bad idea. A baby that age isn't able to properly digest food other than formula or breast milk.
If a baby is measuring a week bigger on scan than EDC does that mean the baby is big or do they date by your last period?
It depends when you have your scan. email me with your dates (see my bio page)and I will explain
At 24 weeks, a human baby fetus is about the size of a small cantaloupe. The face is fully formed and the lungs and taste buds are forming rapidly.
A healthy four week old baby should be noticeably larger than a newborn with less wrinkles than a new born and a clearer complection.
A newborn baby is 40 weeks old. The gestation period in humans normally ranges between 37 and 42 weeks.
I am 37 weeks and 5 day pregnant my doctor told me to wait 2 weeks to get my baby do u thnk it could be.one thng more my baby weight is 2.588 grams can i improve my baby weight befor birth?
Rest more and eat more. The food should be healthy food as far as possible.
In general, new born babies only need to be bathed 1-3 times per week. The skin is sensitive and so bathing more than this can cause irritation, especially if soap is used each time.
The baby is far too small and mobile at 11 weeks to be in any particuular position.
They say around your 35th week a baby should weigh around 5 1/4 pounds....Hopefully this will helpVaries so much from baby to baby. Our baby was born at 35 weeks weighing 2.5kg which was considered a good size for this gestatation.
At that age a baby should not eat anything, it gets all the nutrition it needs form its mothers milk.
The baby's head should be done. If it is not, it would be a 'breech baby' and may require a caesarian to deliver.
I believe babies can see right side up from new Born's till adults
It can probably cause some strain on the baby's organs, if you did it and everything seems fine, than you're lucky but there is still a chance that something could have happened to it. Don't do it anymore though, you're risking a lot if you do.
yes it is
Well, on the growth chart, it looks like somewhere around 12 - 19 lbs.
You should give an 8 week old baby 3 oz bottle of breast-milk or powdered milk if he/she has trouble drinking it then only give it 2
Tuesday is the most common day of the week to have a baby. Sundays are the least common. The rise of scheduled deliveries (inductions, c-sections) has led to a drop in weekend births.
Pregnancy test. For six weeks after having a baby you are extremely fertile so if you have had unprotected sex since you gave birth you are probably pregnant.
I dont know the statistics, but i work in Labor and Delivery at a hospital. It seems everyone goes into labor on thursdays!
You can breastfeed and bottle-feeding it well and wake it every 2, 3 or 4 hours to feed all day and all night.
Yes according to this website it does http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/prenatal-care/PR00112 At week five, your baby is 1/17 of an inch long - about the size of the tip of a pen. This week, your baby's heart and circulatory system are taking shape. Your baby's blood vessels will complete a circuit, and his or her heart will begin to beat. Although you won't be able to hear it yet, the motion of your baby's beating heart may be… Read More
