People will tell you 37 weeks, but not all Drs agree on this. Many argue that your due date is only an estimate, so you could be a couple weeks early or late in development at 37 weeks. You'll have to talk to your Dr to see what is safest for you and baby.
term is 37 weeks.. when doctors say self induction is safe to start. And full term.. would be your due date. But most doctors wont induce you till your 42 weeks. Unless its something medical.
The brain is still developing until about 38w, so it is best to stay pregnant until then. The lungs are fully matured between 36-37w.
Ive always heard after 36 weeks You are full term.
We class full term as 37weeks in my country but growth and development is happening and the baby is still putting on fat to help them survive the first few days especially if they are breastfed and the milk doesn't come in for a few days.
Please don't self induce. Let your little one come on his or her own.
Lol ppl don't argue that it is an estimate haha its bc it IS an estimate there's no way to pinpoint and say oh yup I got pregnant at 11:56 monday july 23 lol too much room for error. Y do you think everything days edd bc it stands for expected due date lol and full term is really about 38-41 42 weeks. Bottom line you got pregnant deal with baby chives when they are ready. Sry to be so blunt but tired of seeing ppl si negative over going a few days 'overdue' and I don't mean the person that posted this as that was not their question lol
Im drinking a bucket of castor oil as i type this. Lol
Jk im not even planning to self induce. Just wondering when one was considered term.
