I know due dates...

I know due dates change and vary from the time the child is in the womb..but after the child is born is a that a hard count of weeks? Would 39 actually mean 39..and not an adjusted week?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?

Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

The calculations are pretty accurate these days. If you are being told 39 weeks, then you can rely on that.

Even if the exact day of conception would make it 38 weeks? I ask because the conception date was June 12, 2016, my son was born February 21,*****said he was a week early...at 39 week 7lbs 8oz. His mother almost went into labor 3 times and the Dr stopped it till the time of birth.. it just has my curiosity peaked.

I understand the question.

Technically, a full term pregnancy is 40 weeks. However, anywhere between 38 and 42 weeks is considered normal. In fact, we would call a 39 week pregnancy "full term". Stopping labor would not be appropriate after 38 wekks. But, depending on the situation, it could be advantageous to stop labor prior to that time.

in your professional opinion 39 weeks is a good measurment.. not the 38 I count on the calender from date of conception

I am inclined to trust the number you were given.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
