“The fetus is in the stomach seven days a day” is the child born late smarter? Don’t believe it

Three days after my friend’s pregnancy, the fetus didn’t start. My friend is in a hurry, ready to go to the hospital for examination. However, her mother-in-law told her that the child was not born, it must not be time to be mature. The fetus is in the stomach for seven days a day. The late born child is smarter and doesn’t have to worry. Now, there is a popular saying that “a fetus in the stomach is worth seven days outside”. However, expectant mothers must not understand it as that the longer the child stays in the stomach, the better the development, the smarter. < / P > < p > it is undeniable that for children born under 37 weeks, that is, premature infants, who are not full-term, whose body functions are not fully developed, are prone to infection and other problems after birth, which seriously affect their health and development. Therefore, it’s good for children who are not full-term to spend more than one day in their mother’s stomach. < / P > < p > however, for children who are close to or have exceeded the due date of delivery, their physical development tends to be mature, and all kinds of physical indicators are normal, so they no longer need the support of the mother. Staying in the mother’s stomach is harmful but not beneficial. < / P > < p > first of all, the aging degree of placenta will be accelerated if the expected delivery period is too long. The main function of the placenta is to provide oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. If the placenta is aging, the fetus will have hypodermic fat reduction and dehydration due to the untimely delivery of oxygen and nutrients. < / P > < p > secondly, after 42 weeks of late delivery, the baby has not been born, and the rate of amniotic fluid reduction of pregnant mother is accelerating, so the fetus is facing the risk of hypoxia at any time, and its life safety is threatened. < / P > < p > it can be seen that “the fetus is in the stomach for seven days a day”. On the surface, the more full-term children are, the more intelligent they are. Logically, they can justify themselves, but there is no direct relationship. < / P > < p > in fact, it has been proved that children’s intelligence quotient is only related to Congenital heredity, acquired nutrition, intellectual development, and the cultivation of learning habits, and has no direct relationship with the length of stay in the mother’s stomach. < / P > < p > if you are a pregnant woman who has been pregnant for 42 weeks and has not given birth for two weeks beyond the expected delivery date, don’t imply that “the fetus will arrive outside for seven days a day in the belly” and wait for the birth of the child at home. You should know that this is already an “overdue pregnancy”, and go to the hospital in time to take measures. < / P > < p > because prolonged pregnancy is harmful. For example, with the decrease of amniotic fluid and the increase of fecal concentration in amniotic fluid, children are more likely to have “aspiration pneumonia”; the fetus continues to grow, which makes it difficult to give birth to macrosomia; the fetus is lack of blood supply, which increases the chance of fetal distress; the fetus is over mature, which leads to over mature syndrome, such as the loss of subcutaneous fat, more hair and so on, which increases the fetal mortality and morbidity. 08/16/2020
