The average pregnancy lasts for 40 weeks
pregnancy lasts for a periods of 40 weeks from last missed periods. Pregnancy lasts for 38 weeks from the date of conception. Normally you do not know the date of conception. The date of last periods is taken normally to calculate the weeks of pregnancy.
The doctor can estimate about how many weeks along the pregnancy is through methods such as ultrasound, but he cannot say with 100% certainty what the exact date was.
It would be inadvisable to travel as heavily pregnant as 34 weeks. The safest time to travel during pregnancy is the second trimester (12 - 24 weeks). Any woman over 28 weeks pregnant must be carrying a note from a doctor or midwife explaining that the pregnancy is normal and that you are very healthy and fit to fly. It must also have your expected due date stated on it. If you are expecting twins and/or suffer from diabetes, it is inadvisable to travel at any stage of pregnancy.

Pregnancy is accepted as being 40 weeks gestation or confinement, although a term pregnancy is considered normal anywhere between 37 and 42 weeks.
Yes, they can be wrong, but are not likely to be. Doctors use much more accurate tests for pregnancy than home pregnancy tests. As to the difference between the actual date of sexual activity and the doctor's assessment, the doctor considers the date of conception to be the first day of the last period, which could have been 6 weeks ago. The reality is that actual conception dates and due dates are, at best, educated estimates. The doctor may, and probably will, revise the dates later in the pregnancy as more developmental information about the fetus becomes available from ultrasounds, etc. But, if still in doubt, consult your physician.
Doctors count from the date of your last period to start the 40 weeks of pregnancy.
The reason your first week of pregnancy actually starts on the week of your menstrual cycle is so that your doctor can calculate your expected delivery date!
40 weeks from the date of your last expected period - NOT 40 weeks from the time of conception!
It's 40 weeks from the date of conception; plus or minus 2 weeks.
after 2 weeks from iui date
A pregnancy is 40 weeks long so count back. If you want the baby on that particular day you have to convince a doctor that you have a good reason to start the labor then since the baby can come 2 weeks after the due date.
Pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. there are roughly 4 weeks in a month PREGNANCY IS REALLY 10 MONTHS LONG!
The normal length of a pregnancy is forty weeks. Forty weeks isn't always reached with many people. You may go over your due date or you may deliver earlier than your due date.
When estimating the age of the fetus, the doctor begins counting weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period. The date of conception did not occur until 2 weeks later when you ovualted. This is why pregnancy is actually a total of 10 months not 9 as most people think.
This depends on your doctor. Many doctors will induce at 39 weeks if the pregnancy has been healthy and there is a valid reason for the induction. Some doctors choose to wait until after your due date. Discuss risks and benefits of induction with your doctor since it is mostly up to him/her.
Absolutely a scan can tell the difference within 3 weeks at this stage. The heartbeat would be visible at both 7 and 10 weeks (which you would be pregnancy wise). Measurements are taken to date the pregnancy so you need to ask the doctor/tech/nurse how many weeks pregnant you are.
Within a day or two
Yes it can be sometimes when your around 6-7 weeks into your pregnancy. At 10 weeks, based on the size of the foetus and conception date a pretty accurate date can be arrived at. Yes it can if you have a long cycle. My date from my period was 23rd September but I had a 36 day cycle and my scan date was 4th October.
July 2. An average pregnancy is 40 weeks, but seldom exactly on on that date.
usually about 1and a half to 2 weeks after your first date
Of course. Pregnancy begins at 1 week, the first week being the date of the last menstrual period. 3 weeks would be roughly around date of conception.
The full term of a pregnancy is 40 weeks. This term is calculated from the end date of a woman's last mense (period) hence determining the date of birth. However, this date is approximate and can be incorrect by 2 weeks before or after. This is because a woman can conceive late in her menstural cycle when she has already ovulated ready for her period and the second ovum is getting ready, it is the second ovum that fertilizes, hence she will be pregnant when she has her last period or she can conceive immediately after her last period or two weeks (midway) in her cycle, making the estimated date of birth acurate to within 2 weeks either way. This also goes for those women with irregular cycles. Hopes this info helps.
