How long can baby live in womb after water breaks?
It depends on may things, if you have a high leak the membranes may seal and the pregnancy can continue. If your membranes are ruptured after 12 hours there is a fear of infection setting in, dangerous to both the baby and mother - you must be closely monitored for fever, pain and fetal distress. Another thing doctors look at is the cause of premature rupture as an infection is sometimes the cause, in that case antibiotics will be given and you may need to be induced or delivered by Cesarian Section to prevent further complications.

There is no set time. Could be long, could be short. There are to many variables here to make a prediction. The maximum time should be 24 hours, longer than that and you have the problem of infection.
Baby red-eared sliders... well for starters, don't worry about them drowning underwater. Just give them enough water so that their head is above the water. As long as they have some rocks on the side so that they can bask, you're good. =) Source: experience
Answer . The age of viability is 24-26 weeks gestation, although a baby born that early will have some complications. A baby born at 20weeks gestation cannot survive outside of the womb; therefore, the further along the pregnancy, the greater the chances of survival for the fetus. Babies born ver…y premature have immature lungs, brain functioning capabilities, skin is very fragile; therefore these babies are unable to regulate their body temperature. In other words the baby is most likely not going to survive. ( Full Answer )
actually they have a lot of fun in there. they sleep and when they arent they kick and stretch its a miracle it really is and they also grow and go through different stages
Answer . The oxygen still comes through the placenta and umbilical cord just as it has all pregnancy. The cord and placenta are within the bag and attached to the mother so nothing changes in that regard. The supply of oxygen is only cut off from this source when the cord is cut, after the baby h…as been born for a while, or if the cord or placenta are damaged or constricted. ( Full Answer )
Most people think that a baby is supposed to be in the womb for 36 weeks (9 months) but a baby is supposed to be in the womb for 40 weeks (10 months).
I think they can smile.I am 37 weeks and i saw my baby smile whileperforming ultrasound.
I have three Baby Murray turtles, I let them play in the shower for abot an hour with no water.I would say they could go an hour without water.
First, the penis must be inserted into the vagina. The penis will release the sperms (male sex cell) into the womb. Then, the sperm meets the egg (female sex cell). Then, they fuse together. The fertilised egg starts to divide to make more cells. It attaches itself to the wall of the mothers womb an…d continue to develop and grow. Soon, organs begin to form and the baby gets its nutrients from its mother through the umbilical cord. About nine months after fertilisation, the baby is born. Here is a link to a great website with photos showing the baby's development from week to week! ( Full Answer )
No. There is no air in the womb. They obtain their oxygen through the umbilical cord.. There is no air so the baby does not breath, but it does make breathing motions.. no. it has oxygen, food and everything else it needs delivered through the cord. it starts breathing when it is born.
Koalas live in tropical to temperate eucalypt forest and woodlands and can be found along the eastern and south-eastern coastal regions. They live in eucalyptus trees and are mostly nocturnal and eat certain types of eucalypt leaves exclusively.. They breed from September to February. Females breed… from 2 years of age, and males from 3-4 years after they have established their own territory. Males are extremely aggressive during mating periods. Thirty-five days after mating, the female produces one joey weighing about 0.5 grams and about 2 cm long.. Koalas have a woolly light to dark grey fur with brown and white patches and a cream belly. They have a broad head with small eyes, large furry ears and a distinctive large black nose. Females has two teats and a rear opening pouch.. Northern koalas can grow to 740 mm and 9 kg for males and 720 mm and 7.25 kg for females. Southern koalas can grow to 820 mm and 15 kg for males and 730 mm and 11 kg for females.. They can live for up to 18 years for females and a bit less for males.. They spend up to 20 hours per day sleeping and the rest eating.. Koalas can leap up to 2 metres and can swim. They curl up into a ball to keep warm and spread out to keep cool. ( Full Answer )
As there are several species of unicorns the gestation period varies from about 6 months to 20 months.
Hi, We have just found out that our baby is not producing any fluid. We have been told by the consultant that there is a very good chance of a problem with the kidney or no kidney. What can you do...
Surprising to me was the difficulties I encountered in coming up with a good answer to this question. The reasons why it has become almost undocumented, and nearly impossible to answer properly, fall into two categories: clinical and real-world.. The clinical aspects are the most scant (I'll explai…n why later), and one of the papers I reviewed for this answer was dated 1898. Modern papers are harder to come by and, when you do find them, they carefully, delicately focus on one or another aspect of fetal mortality -- as opposed to addressing the matter generally. That said, here is the little I can tell you. . The exact amount of time is indeterminate. The mother's body in almost all cases will detect that the fetus is dead, and will typically commence and complete a delivery. One case, which I suspect to be typical, documented that the mother's body retained the post-mortem fetus for 6 weeks. Other articles cite times as short as a few days, or a week. . The major factors at play seem to relate to the cause of death of the fetus as well as the mother's general health. In a healthy mother, a fetus that fails a major developmental step (usually way before 21 weeks) will miscarry on its own often before death is detected, and the mother's physiological health will not necessarily be compromised. A sad process, but a healthy one -- the body, in early term, stops what isn't going to work. . If the mother, however, is extremely ill, and/or the illness relates to the fetus, reports vary. If the mother is weakened, non-induced delivery may or may not occur, as one hopes. This case also speaks to causes for an abortion (and yes, even though the fetus is dead, the procedure is still called an abortion). . Typically, most elective abortions occur very early in the first trimester, and involve procedures that put the mother at very little risk. Late-term abortions are another matter, and many doctors are hesitant to perform a late-term elective abortion -- or flat-out won't do it. . Therapeutic abortions, however, are another matter. Therapeutic abortions are those abortions that are dictated out of medical necessity, where the determination is made that the mother's life is endangered if the pregnancy continues. There are lots and lots of reasons for a therapeutic abortion in later pregnancy: One of these is a post-mortem fetus. . Very few clinical trials regarding this procedure are on record. Part of the reason for this is that medical technology is moving right along, and methods change, the old giving way to the new. That 1898 paper was historically interesting, but clinically useless. . The other factors -- the political and real-world ones -- are the other reason. Over the past decade, pressure against Pro-Choice groups has been increasing, culminating in the "2003 Partial Birth Abortion Ban," sponsored by President G.W. Bush. Oddly, the bill, which is now in law, neither differentiates between a therapeutic abortion and an elective abortion, nor does it draw any line between an abortion performed on a live -- versus a dead -- fetus. . The result is that Dilation and Extraction (D&X), often the procedure of choice for delivering a post-mortem fetus, is now illegal. In addition, many hospital boards have become extremely reluctant to approve Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) -- a method similar to D&X. . In addition to this, many Catholic schools and hospitals have followed suit and have placed an ecclesiastical ban on performing D&E as well as D&X abortions. . The result is that most doctors who can perform a D&X are over 50 years old. The majority of younger doctors don't have much experience in this, and are understandably reluctant to take on the legal risks of performing a procedure in which they have insufficient experience. . So now we're seeing a lot of natural deliveries of post-mortem fetuses, partially because -- in earlier days -- they would have been therapeutically aborted. As such, we don't know how long a dead fetus can, in fact, remain in the mother's body; in the past, we wouldn't have let it go so long. . Generally speaking, with a healthy mother and a post-mortem fetus, it's clinically wise to abort the fetus. Complications with the mother's health can, of course, change this decision (anemia is one reason). And various blood dyscrasias tend to become more and more likely as time passes, notably Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC -- the med-student's mnemonic for "Death Is Coming") and thrombocytopenia. The risk of bacterial infection also increases. . One might be inclined to think that therapeutic abortion is also risky -- and it is -- but not as much. "A review of 300 second-trimester abortions published in 2002 in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology found that 29 percent of women who went through labor and delivery had complications, compared with just 4 percent of those who had D&Es." Ms. Magazine -- Martha Mendoza -- Essay, Summer of 2004.. Ms. Mendoza also cites that "abortion is not readily available in 86% of the counties in the US." Ibid . One aspect of this issue that is frequently neglected is the mother's psychological well-being. A miscarriage or stillbirth is a deeply traumatic event. Worse, however, are the twin dangers of either carrying a dead fetus to term, on the one hand, or fighting one's way through a medico-legal bureaucracy, trying to get this done. . Either way, the mother's mental well-being is surely going to be challenged. . So, in summary, 6 or more weeks is possible; and 3 days is also a possibility. The longer this continues, the greater the likelihood of clinical dangers to the mother. However, considering the physiological and psychological dangers the mother is facing, these scanty estimates can change, quite literally, in a heartbeat. ( Full Answer )
The average pregnancy length is 40 weeks timed from two weeksbefore the egg is fertilized.

Ahh now here is an interesting question! Some Christians believe that once the egg is fertilized it's a human being and abortion is killing a living human. It's all about personal belief. Some people believe that after a certain time in the womb it's a human being or once they are actually fully bor…n that they are a human. Just remember this is your personal belief. ( Full Answer )
Fish do not carry offspring in a womb. They lay eggs. The amount of time spent in the egg varies from species to species.

dumb question...9 months. Actually moose are are pregnant for closer to 8 months & give birth in may
Thylacines no longer reproduce are they are now extinct. Being marsupials, the baby Thylacine joeys would have been no larger than about 2cm long at birth. Most of their development occurred in the female's pouch.
There are over sixty known species of kangaroo, ranging from the largest, the Red kangaroo, to the smallest, the Musky rat kangaroo. Therefore, gestation periods vary. It should also be noted that kangaroos have the ability to suspend the development of the embryo whilst another joey is still in the… pouch, so they can be in a state of continuous pregnancy. The musky rat kangaroo has a gestation period of 19 days, whilst the red kangaroo has a gestation period of about 33 days. Most of the development of the joey occurs in the pouch rather than in the womb. Young musky rat kangaroo joeys spend about 21 weeks in the pouch, while red kangaroo joeys spend an average of 9 months in the pouch. ( Full Answer )
A doctor can only tell you that a baby was/is in the womb for too long.
After ROM (rupture of membranes) most doctors start to worry about infection after 12 hours. If the mom and baby are both doing well and labor is progressing, it is completely arbitrary to do a C/Section because X number of hours have passed. If the mother is kept well hydrated and doctors and nur…ses refrain from doing internal exams, nature should be allowed to take it's course. If the water breaks before labor starts or the mom is having a slow start/long labor and the doctor is worried about infection the mother can be put on antibiotics to help prevent an infection for her and the baby. When a woman has PROM (premature rupture of membranes) and the baby is too young to be safely delivered, she will need to be hospitalized, so the fluids in the womb can be replaced with warm sterile water and she will be put on antibiotics to prevent infections. A growing baby needs the water filled environment to develop properly and to prevent a cord accident. In this case the baby is left in the womb as long as it is considered safer inside or until her labor starts and can't be stopped. ( Full Answer )
There is a small percentage of mothers who may hear their babiescry I believe. As for me when I was at 29 weeks of pregnancy Iheard one of my twins in the womb crying whenever I felt hungry orwhen the hyper acidity attacks me. It's hard to explain why. But Ihear them on my left ear. Imagine the babi…es are covered withfluid, and if they cry it vibrates into a sound. You can only payattention to the sound when you're in a quiet place. It's theconnection between you and your baby, and it is an amazingexperience for me to feel that. I know they're hungry or notfeeling good and try to do things to make them stop crying in mywomb. It is such an absolute amazing experience. ( Full Answer )
Depends on the species of whale. 18 months may be the amount of time that a whale fetus spends in it's mother's womb.
The baby wont begin to breathe as such, until it is born. it will still receive oxygenated blood from its mother via the umbilical cord. this is enough until it is stimulated to breathe after delivery.
Giant tortoises are not mammals and do not give live birth like humans. Instead, female tortoises lay two to sixteen eggs, which eventually hatch after one hundred and thirty days.
Yes but not for ever, there is a much higher risk of infection, after so many hours the mother is usually induced if labour hasn't begun.
In the later stages of pregnancy; its not just voices but certain sounds as well. example; if 'mum-to-be' sits down in the afternoon to relax a bit and watch some tv, the baby can recognise the theme tune to a tv programme (or similar).
the cord attached to the belly button sends oxygen to the lungs. the spank of life is to encourage the baby to breathe
No, there is no fruit, berries or vegetables that will harm them. Only if you are allergic.
At 27 weeks gestation a baby can open its eyes an blink. I suppose it's a natural reaction/reflex like how we wake up and open our eyes, blinking.
No at 14 weeks it has been a fetus for just a few weeks. Around week 24 it has a chance to be saved but without guarantees.
my water bag broke how long do i hve to wait to see a doctor
Most don't like for the baby to stay in there any longer than 24 hours because of the risk of infection, but closely monitored, a doctor may go longer.
Yes. When the water breaks, a woman needs to head straight to the hospital. After the water breaks, the baby is more prone to infection. In a hospital environment, however, antibiotics can be used to minimize the risk to the unborn child and along with a sterile environment, the baby's risk is lower…ed by a large percentile. ( Full Answer )
Yes. I believe its at 12 weeks the baby can start secreting urine in the womb. it may be a little later then that but they definitely can and do
if you were in the 1920's no but since we live in 2010 we can find out the sex through an ultra sound anywhere from 16 weeks into the pregnancy to 20 weeks
The baby is fed through the umbilical cord and receives everything that the mother ingests.
I would think nothing outside of the body, maybe something the mother to be would eat.
The baby can stay inside for a while after the baby is born, but there are many complications with this... it increases the chances of a baby getting an infection. it increases the pressure on the baby, which could hurt him/her. there is no water surrounding him as padding now to alleviate thi…s pressure. the baby will not be able to move for that month, which could cause problems with his/her joints.

A female echidna does not carry the baby echidna in her womb. Echidnas are monotremes, or egg-laying mammals. After mating, there is a gestation period for the egg of 23 days. During breeding season, the female develops a rudimentary pouch which is really just a flap of skin. When it comes time to… lay her egg, she curls tightly into a ball and lays it directly in this pouch, where it is incubated for around 10 days. The young emerge blind and hairless, and stay in the pouch, suckling for two to three months. ( Full Answer )
Everyone is different and there is not set time, while some doctors don't want you going past a cerentin point just depends on your physician. It can be a matter of hours or a day or so just depending on what the body wants to do.
Female platypuses lay eggs. The egg develops in the platypus's body for about ten days before it is laid.
A baby pig is in the mother's womb for 114 days, give or take 2days. Pregnant pigs are also known as piggy sows.
When a physician or midwife breaks your water, they use something called an amniohook (which almost looks like a plastic knitting needle) to snag the amniotic sac surrounding the baby. Once this sac is opened, the amniotic fluid leaks out. Because the sac isn't part of the baby's body, the act of br…eaking your water shouldn't hurt the baby. With that being said, there are some relatively rare risks that can happen when a physician or midwife breaks your water, so it's always best to ask about the pros and cons of the procedure before it happens.

Baby rabbits are born 32 days after the mating between the doe and the buck
That varies widely among individuals. The important thing is that once your water breaks, you need to get to your source of care for labor/delivery (hospital, midwife, etc.) if you aren't there already.
Without the mother having any circulation or life support, itwouldn't last very long. They baby would begin to suffocate. After4 minutes, neurological damage would begin. In about 10 to 15minutes, there would be fetal death.
