Many pregnant women are interested in the question of whether their children will be born on the date, which was established in the beginning of their pregnancy. Usually the doctor determines the due date and the woman is waiting for this period with excitement. In many cases, when a woman does not give birth to her child on the due date, she begins worrying about whether everything is fine with her child. Sometimes when the childbirth begins earlier than the established time, then pregnant women begin to panic and think that the child didn’t have enough time to develop completely during this time. All women have a different attitude to this issue. Some women panic, when the due date changes, others do not pay attention to it and believe that the childbirth will happen when the child will be fully developed and ready to be born.
All pregnant women should keep in mind that there is a possibility that the date, which is established by the doctor or in the result of an ultrasound procedure can be not the exact date when your baby will be born. In many cases, the time period may vary and many children can be born both earlier and later. A pregnant woman should not be worried about this.
There is also an opinion that if a woman is pregnant for the first time, then the child is usually born later than in the period established by the doctor.
In general, there is no exact method on how to accurately set the date of the delivery. Doctors usually use the following method: they add 40 weeks to the first day of the last menstrual period.
Today there are a great number of sites for pregnant women and women who already have children. On such sites you can find necessary information and statistics related to pregnancy. If you want, you can even use a pregnancy calculator on the Internet and, using the necessary dates, you can find out your expected due date. On such sites a lot of information is presented in the form of tables, diagrams, survey results.
You must understand that there is no method that will not give you 100% guarantee, that your baby will be born on that very day, which was established at the beginning of your pregnancy. You can read a lot of information on the Internet websites for pregnant women and analyze the data, which is related to other women, but you should remember that your pregnancy is an individual case and your situation can be different.
You must understand that every woman is unique and each woman’s pregnancy proceeds differently. The date of childbirth can be affected by various factors, for example, your child may develop faster than usual. If during pregnancy you experience a lot of stressful situations and anxieties, then you risk giving birth earlier then due date, which may not be very good.
Some women think that if they have an increase in working capacity during pregnancy, their due date may change. In fact, this is not true. If you increase your ability to work during your pregnancy, there is a small possibility that your due date will change, but the period may vary only in 1-2 days. Usually, if a woman is actively working during her pregnancy, then she does not have time to worry about many questions, which may even be useful for the woman.
It should be noted that there are many women who have given birth to their children at a fixed time. All the information above shows that there is no necessity to worry if the due date changes. If you have questions, ask your doctor and the doctor will help you.
