During pregnancy, I studied just tons of literature about childbearing, childbirth and baby care. And I really didn’t think about getting into those 4% percent of women who give birth after the expected day of birth.
But no, I still managed to get into these statistics. And with the appearance of my daughter, my daughter was obviously not going to hurry. Every day after the DA seemed like an eternity. And I stayed for almost 10 days.
Why am I not giving birth?
Every minute after the appointed date I asked this question. According to the doctor, I was already fully prepared for the happy moment, but he did not come. I ran up the stairs, and the floors of soap, and walked several kilometers a day – there was no result.
At first, I somehow did not even care that my daughter was slightly late in coming to light. Made a discount on the small error of the ultrasound. Yes, and my mom, too, always perehozhivala, and this, they say, is inherited.
But on the fifth day of the delay, I began to worry. In addition, my doctor added fuel to the fire. She called me every day and was already wondering with obvious anxiety if I had given birth. But I could not please her with anything.
As a result, the doctor decided – if in 41 weeks the birth does not take place, I go to the hospital for stimulation. I didn’t want that at all.
Why is it bad to give birth after 41 weeks
I ran to my doctor and began to torture, what is bad about what I am walking around. It seems to be nothing like this, baby normal. It turned out that in childbirth after 41 weeks there is absolutely nothing good.
1. The baby is growing every day, and may occur problems in childbirth. In addition, he is starting harden bones – and this is again not the best helper in childbirth.
2. In the mother’s body changes begin to occur, which is not the best way to influence the child. Hypoxia is the first negative factor.
By the way, all pediatricians, to whom we began to go after the birth of our daughter, said that oxygen starvation is almost inevitable. And we had a minor problem on this background later.

In general, there is nothing good in a post-term pregnancy. Very often there are complications in childbirth. And I’m not talking about the psychological state of my mother, when all the deadlines have passed, and the baby does not want to be born. In addition, all the relatives, friends considered it their duty to call every day and ask why I do not give birth. I was already just on edge, to be honest.
At 41 weeks, I also did not give birth. As a result, they put me in the hospital. And, apparently, my daughter decided to take pity on her mother and at night she asked for a tummy. It was very timely. The waters were already green, the bones hardened. Stimulation was not required, and the birth was very good. The main thing is that I did not go over very much.
But my friend literally walked around for a couple of weeks, and she already had 42 weeks exactly. Although she went to the hospital at 41 weeks, the doctors did not begin to stimulate her. All indicators were normal, but there was no labor activity.
As a result, she was stimulated at 42 weeks. The result – a very, very difficult birth. The baby was already big, the bones were hard and he simply stuck. At birth almost all the highly qualified staff gathered.
The result, of course, was not very good – asphyxia at birth, hematomas on the head. And this is neurology in the future. After the hospital, the baby was in the children’s hospital. And now doctors minimize the consequences that entailed late delivery.
Therefore, if you begin to take a lot of care, be sure to monitor your condition and the condition of the baby with the doctor. Of course, pregnancy is a wonderful time, but all is well in the terms set by nature.
Mommies, did you give birth in time? If not, how was the birth of your baby?
