Prolonged pregnancy, pregnancy and childbirth

As a rule, a child is born from 38 to 42 weeks. And this is considered normal. But often doctors reinsured and send a pregnant woman to the hospital already at 40 weeks. At the same time, women often refuse this offer and continue to wait for signs of childbirth at home. To say for sure how it is better or worse is difficult. I have a couple of examples of completely opposite situations.

Good ending

One of my friends had an estimated birth date of May 5th. This is the date when 40 weeks of pregnancy expired. However, after this period, there were no harbingers, and a friend decided not to rush to go to the hospital. The hospital conditions did not please her, so she chose to wait at home.

And, as it turned out, for good reason. Fights with her began only on May 18, and on the same day a pretty little girl appeared. So a friend still rejoices that she did not obey the alarmist doctors and did not go to the hospital on May 5th. For 13 whole days, she enjoyed her position, and did not spend time in four walls with a gloomy mood.

And not so much.

Another friend of mine also reacted to the advice of doctors lightly. She decided that she herself felt better how to act, so she began to wait for a decisive moment at home. So she waited for the end of 41 weeks. At 42 weeks, she was already alert for a while, and when the end of this week came, she panicked.

Collecting things, she went to the maternity hospital, scaring the doctors with her appearance, and most importantly – with a deadline. She urgently called childbirth. As a result, the water diverted, dark green. The child was born, but he was kept in hospital for a long time. He had problems with the respiratory system.

What to do?

I was lucky in this case. There was no choice in front of me: to go to the hospital or not. The contractions began on the day of the intended birth, and I gave birth at 40 weeks and 1 day. But, probably, if I got into a situation of a post-term pregnancy, I would immediately go to the maternity hospital.

Still, to carry the child for 9 months, wait for him to appear, and then because of his unwillingness to be in the hospital to lose him, I think, at least, it is wrong.

How was it with you? Pregnancy in time or earlier / later?
