40 weeks is always only a judgement. Your baby will come when it is ready to. Some people go days/weeks overdue.
My sister has been this way for almost a week and contracting irregularly and she is still sitting at home waiting?
A baby is considered full term at 37 weeks, but it is up to your doctor to decide whether or not you should be induced earlier than 40 weeks, or at 39 weeks in your case. There should be a medical reason to induce the mother - just being 39 weeks pregnant is not enough! Additionally, if the mother has any complications and is 39 weeks, her doctor will go ahead and induce her. Also, if the doctor thinks that the baby is measuring large, he will also induce her before 40 weeks. Some doctors will induce their patients at 39 weeks if they are already dilated or effaced - this makes inducing a little easier on the baby and mother if the mother has already started to make progress.
Inducing before 39 weeks is dangerous for your baby, who would be born a preemie. Don't do it.
You can possibly expect a c-section.
It could be later today it could be 3 weeks from now. Just because you are dilated to something doen'nt mean labor is anytime soon...sorry. I have been dilated to a 3 for 2 weeks now :(
To find the number of days in 39 weeks, multiply the number of weeks by 7 days. 39 X 7 = 273 There are 273 days in 39 weeks.
usually it is about 40 weeks but sometimes it may be overdue or premature but if not usually 40 weeks

dilation can take weeks i know someone who walkked around for weeks dilated to a 3
Around 5% of babies are born overdue. This involves more then 42 weeks gestation The placenta begins to deteriorate after approximately 38 weeks. This leads to a situation where overdue baby may not be getting enough oxygen. An overdue baby may also grow too large for a normal vaginal delivery. usually when a baby is 2 weeks overdue a birth will be induced for the safety of the baby and the mother.
35 weeks along and 1.5 cm dilated 75 percent effaced? What does this mean?
Normally they induce you if you get to 2 weeks overdue
There are 39/7 = 5 weeks and 4 days in 39 days, since there are 7 days in a week.
Go and see the doctor or hospital.
The question you have typed, does not mean anything really!
i have been 1 cm for 3 weeks now! I dont think that how dilated you are really matters unless you are in active labor!
AT 3 cm dilated, you can be placed on bed rest. I was placed on bed rest at 32 weeks and 6 days to prevent me from going into preterm labor.
All I can say is that I am 40 weeks 100% effaced and 2 cm dilated and I have not gone into labor. I am still waiting....
39 days is 5 4/7 weeks, or 5 weeks and 4 days.
I was 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant and was 2 cm dilated and my cervix was 70% ready for 2 weeks before I gave birth. I would say it is any time now... GOOD LUCK!!!
Your period can be overdue by anything from a few days to 4-5 weeks. If you are worried about your period being very late, ask your doctor why this is happening and what you can do about it. Make sure you couldn't possibly be pregnant as that would be a reason for an overdue period.
No, the word overdue is not an adverb.The word overdue is an adjective.
There's really no way to tell. You can be slightly dilated for weeks before going into true labor. On the other hand, you might not be dilated at all and then go into labor closer to your due date. It's oddly not a very reliable way of telling when you'll deliver, until you are in active labor.
