Patient discussion about delivery

Q. how long does the delivery of the baby usually takes?

A. we waited almost 8 hours at the hospital...but the last part shouldn't take more then 40 minutes i guess..but i was so overwhelmed that i didn't look on the watch?

Q. What risk is it in a pre-delivery? let say couple of weeks before the due . and what is the earliest one can deliver with out harming the baby ?

A. I think just couple of weeks premature is not a major problems because the baby lungs is considered fully develop at 32 weeks and the survival rate is much greater than babies born before 24 weeks. Don't worry because the last part of the pregnancy is just weight gain of the fetus.

Q. How many women actually give birth on their EDD (expected delivery date)? I am pregnant and my EDD is January 22nd. I was wondering what are the chances I will give birth on that day exactly?

A. If it's your first pregnancy, you probably will give birth after your EDD, as first pregnancies tend to be longer. Your EDD is after a full 40 weeks of pregnancy. It is most common to give birth between 38- 42 weeks of pregnancy.
