The same is true for full-term babies, born at 37 and 40 weeks of gestation

We often say pregnant in October, but in fact, very few pregnant mothers give birth to their children after ten months. Most pregnant mothers give birth after more than nine months. Term refers to the fetus growing up in the mother’s month is enough, generally speaking, 37 weeks and meet more than 2500 grams has been full-term.

I went to the hospital to visit my cousin who had just given birth. When I saw her lovely baby, I asked her: “how much is she? ”

at this time, another pregnant mother in the Ward said that” my child came out to play after only 37 weeks. Except that he was a little lighter than your child, I felt no difference. ”

the doctor just came in for a ward round and heard our conversation. He said that” we can’t judge like that. Oh, the baby stays in his mother’s stomach for one more day, and their brain and liver functions are improved Will develop more mature, which is invisible to the naked eye. It’s definitely good to be 40 weeks old. ”

when the baby develops in the mother’s stomach, all organs will develop more perfectly, especially the baby’s lungs. The lungs begin to develop perfectly in the late pregnancy. Therefore, if the baby stays in the mother’s stomach for more than one day, the resistance of the respiratory tract will be stronger, and the voice will be louder at birth. Therefore, the baby born at 40 weeks will develop more soundly It should be improved.

according to a study published by the US Department of health and human services, infants born at 37 weeks are more likely to have complications, such as dyspnea, risks of feeding and temperature control, and more likely to be infected than infants born after 39 weeks. Babies born at 37 weeks are significantly lighter than babies born at 40 weeks, because babies born at 40 weeks develop extremely fast in the last two weeks, so they look stronger and easier to breastfeed.

in addition to breathing ability, compared with 40 week old babies, 37 week old babies are more prone to hypoglycemia and other complications. Even if the baby is sick at 40 weeks, compared with the baby at 37 weeks, the recovery period will be faster and the immunity will be higher.

although the World Health Organization’s standard is generally used in China now, which defines a baby after 37 weeks as a full-term baby, as a mother to be, we should still pay attention to the development of the fetus in the body in just two weeks.

with the development of science and technology, many mothers now choose the so-called “auspicious day” for “selective caesarean section”. In fact, it is likely to be a health risk for a baby who has just reached 37 weeks of full-term.

in fact, if all the examination indexes of pregnant mothers and babies show normal linear weeks, but there is no sign of birth, mothers should wait quietly, and don’t worry about “unloading”, so that the baby can develop more perfectly and healthily.

but at the same time, if the baby is more than 40 weeks old and still refuses to “come out”, at this time, mothers should check in time to see if there is anything abnormal in the fetus. Pregnancy reaching or exceeding 42 weeks is called overdue pregnancy. After the due date of delivery, pregnant mothers should pay close attention to the phenomenon of fetal movement.

in a word, it’s not easy for every pregnant mother to get pregnant, so we need to know more about this knowledge, help ourselves and our baby spend a healthy childbirth period, and the baby will come out to meet their mothers when they are ready.
