Why is it easier for a baby to survive when it is born in the eighth month rather than the sixth month?
A baby does not have well developed lungs and other vital organs to survive on its own until later in the pregnancy. it is always best to be as close to 40 weeks as possible.

Answer . I'm not sure of the seriousness of your post, but the sixth month of pregnancy would occur six months following conception. Dr. B . The sixth month of pregnancy begins at week 22. Week 1 starts on the day of conception or ovulation which generally falls around day 14 of your monthly cycle…. AshBad ( Full Answer )
It depends on what animal or if it's a human. Human babies take 9 months (about 40 weeks) to develop, though it is also normal to be born within the 8th to 9th month of gestation.
Fetal Length . At around the 24th week of pregnancy, the baby's length from head to toe is approximately 14 inches.
On the earliest calendar of ancient Rome, from about 752 BC toabout 713 BC, March was the first month of the calendar year; thecalendar had ten months: . Martius . Aprilus . Maius . Iunius . Quintilis (from quinque , meaning five) . Sextilis (from sex , meaning six) . September (from sept…em , meaning seven) . October (from octo , meaning eight) . November (from novem , meaning nine) . December (from decem , meaning ten) They then had 61 days of winter, which did not belong to any month. In 713 BC, Numa Pompilius reformed the calendar and added Ianuariusand Februarius as the first and second months, giving rise to theconfused naming scheme that has persisted until today. The originof the name Ianuarius is uncertain. The name Februarius comes from februa , the purification ritual observed by the Romans atthat time of the year. In 44 BC, the month of Quintilis was renamed Iulius in honor ofJulius Caesar, following his assassination. In 8 BC, the month ofSextilis was renamed Augustus, in honor of Caesar Augustus. Severalemperors named months after themselves after that, but none of thenames lasted beyond their deaths. None of those name changes hadanything to do with October becoming the tenth month, as that hadhappened over 600 years earlier. ( Full Answer )
The baby grows in the mother's womb for nine months before it is ready to be born.
The Sixth Month . By the end of the sixth month, the fetus is over a foot long and weights close to two pounds. The fetus becomes even more coordinated in movement such as pedaling its feet and pushing them against the uterine wall as possibly a practice to walking. It has developed quite a st…rong grip, usually to grasp hold of the umbilical cord. Don't worry though, the umbilical cord is designed to withstand all of the fetus' activities. The umbilical cord is made of a tough, spiral composition that helps prevent kinks or knots.. The fetus' eyes can finally open and close and react to light. It may even use its hands to shield its eyes if a very bright light is shone on the mother's belly! Vocal cords are functioning, but the fetus won't be able to make a sound until its first cry after birth. Hiccups are common and make shake the uterine home often.. A baby born now can survive with intensive care. ( Full Answer )
The Eighth Month . By the end of the eighth month, the fetus is about 18 to 20 inches in length and weighs about 5 to 6 pounds. It is gaining weight at a rate of about 1/2 ounce per day. The fetus now looks plump and less wrinkly as fat deposits fill out its form. Creases have formed around th…e wrists and neck and dimples have started to appear on elbows and knees. With the fetus' uterine home becoming increasingly cramped, the fetus has little room for movement. You'll feel less vigorous kicking but more twisting and wiggling to get comfortable. The fetus will have regular periods of REM (active sleep), deep sleep, active wakefulness, and quiet wakefulness. Brain growth continues fantastically. The lungs are approaching maturity. A baby born now has an excellent chance of survival and being completely healthy. ( Full Answer )

The general recommendation from most health organizations is to exclusively nurse your baby for a minimum of six months. After that, other foods may be given to your child. Those recommendations are just the minimum. To give your baby the very best, breastfeeding should continue well past the baby's… first birthday. The longer you nurse, the greater good you are doing for the child. And the positive benefits also extend to the nursing mother. Both in terms of health and emotional benefits. ( Full Answer )

There are many things couple can do in order to choose the gender of their future baby. The diet is one important factor. It is in fact possible to facilitate the conception of a daughter by eating an acidic diet. Also it is important to have intercourse 3 days before ovulation.The sperm carrying …the X chromosome are called the X sperm and are slower and more hardy than the Y sperm, which are the ones that carry the Y chromosome which will produce a male offspring. Male sperms do not live well in acidic environment and are very weak and cannot survive that long. In order to conceive a girl is important to favor the survival of the female sperm over the male sperm. ( Full Answer )
Yes. A baby can be born at any time. As to the chances of survival it would depend on how many weeks, and how well developed the baby's lungs and vital organs are. If you are asking for reasons of trying to induce yourself that early, I would not suggest it as most babies that early spend time in th…e NICU and some do not survive. There are a lot of life long issues that can come from being born prematurely. Good luck! ( Full Answer )
If we are talking about being born 8 months of course. The further along they are in their development the better. If you are talking about after being born depends on the baby and cause of dying.
6 months would be 24 weeks, and the odds of such premature child surviving are very poor.
It can take anywhere between 9 to 10 months. 9 months is equal to 36 weeks and 10 months is 40 weeks. A full-term baby is born anywhere from 37-40 weeks. A baby born before that is considered pre-term, or premature, and after that post-term.
A baby can usually survive if born in the seventh month Why does the baby need to continue developing for two more months?
At that point it's mostly lung development. The lungs have to mature to in order for the baby to breathe on it's own. Also, to gain a little more weight so he/she can start to support it's own body temperature better. It's just a "neediness" factor. They thrive best at full term, but can "survive" w…ith help from heaters/oxygen/etc. before that. ( Full Answer )
This is not true as surfactant, which helps to keep the lungs open and prevents the tiny alveoli from sticking together, is not formed until 37 weeks gestation. The most common lung problem in a premature baby is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), also known as hyaline membrane disease (HMD).
Well, it depends on the situation. If someone is asking you for a relationship, you should say yes if you're interested, and if not, just say no. It will be easier for them to handle the truth before a relationship, than after all your history together.

i think that the average amount of babies born in the UK in an month is 330,00
i it is born to early it will die ore it will be demented so that is why you should what 8 months before having berth
The answer to this depends on the situation. There are certain medical conditions that make it necessary to deliver a baby early for the health of the mother. Usually this means lots of medical issues for the baby. Ultimately, it's best for both mother and child in MOST cases for the baby to go full… term. Early delivery means breathing issues, higher risk for infection, brain and bleeding issues and a host of other problems. The baby will have to stay in the hospital. But when the survival to the mother or future health of the mother is at risk, doctors can give her shots to help mature the baby's lungs and deliver early if necessary. Most of the time, an obstetrician is going to try to get them as close to the due date as possible. Good luck and best wishes. ( Full Answer )
No they can not. At 22 weeks 9,1% live long enough to be discharged from hospital and often those babies, if they survive, have health problems all their life. Every day and week counts that early and even just 2 weeks earlier makes the difference between life and death.
Selena Gomez is not pregnant and she is a virgin until she gets married bacause of her promise ring she wears
There is a difference between delivering at 7 and 8 months. It's not an old nurses tale. The difference is lung function. At 7 months the lungs are developed and have high surfactant production. At 8 months the surfactant production slows because it is not needed immediately. It is better to deliver… at 7 months because surfactant production is high, which means easier breathing for any child, regardless of race. Don't worry though, if you are 8 months, your MD may order a steroid injection to help you baby's lungs. ( Full Answer )
well it takes 20-30 weeks so hope you rembember my answer because i usto breed them
Most babies born during the eighth month do just fine. Some babies born four weeks early need a little help remembering to breathe, they may be under weight and have trouble regulating their body temperature or they could have trouble sucking. All these things are checked in the hours after birth an…d will determine how soon after birth your baby is ready to leave the hospital. ( Full Answer )
The longer the baby stays inside the better it is.Babies born at 8 months usually have no problem surviving and have a better chance than born in month 7 because they have better developed lungs.

Not everyone is being carried around for a full 9 months. But if its more than a month immature then the doctors feed it until its healthy as can get
Why do babies born at full term have a better chance for survival than babies born a few months early?
Babies that are born on or relatively near their due date are "most of the time" healthier that premature babies. Premature babies are born before there due date by weeks or even months. If they are born early, they wouldn't have grown to their full capability while still in their mom's stomach. Gen…erally, if a woman is having early contractions and is heading into labor, the doctors will give her a medication to stop the pain/contractions. All in all, babies that are born premature aren't as fully grown as babies who are born on time. ( Full Answer )

The ideal timeframe for a baby to be born centers around the 40-week mark that is determined by when the baby is conceived. Under normal circumstances, babies can usually be safely delivered between 36 and 42 weeks (i.e. up to four weeks before their due date, and up to two weeks after). Babies have… been delivered much earlier and also much later and have still survived, but the baby's best chance of survival is if it is delivered within the 40-week window. If the pregnancy progresses up to the 42 week point without any signs of labor, then the mother's water will be broken and labor will be induced. ( Full Answer )
If acquaintances are anything to go by I would say June is a popular month for birthdays
It's not, this is a myth someone made up. The longer the fetus stay in the womb the safer it is.
This is not true as surfactant, which helps to keep the lungsopen and prevents the alveoli from sticking together, is not formeduntil 37 weeks gestation.
