Your doctor said you were 14 weeks and 1 day making it 12 weeks gestation your second scan at 20 weeks was the same how accurate are these scans?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nIf two scans early in pregnancy say the same they are extremely accurate. Your pregnancy gestation was 14 weeks and 1 day as pregnancy is counted from the first day of your last period (if you have a 28 day cycle) it was 12 weeks from conception.\n. \n.
At 31 weeks, a baby would normally survive, however would probably need to be in an incubator for a while and have some help breathing
At 32 weeks a baby would generally survive, however may need to be in an incubator for a while and have some help breathing
At 32weeks 85% of infants survive. They still need a lot of help and will usually stay in the NICU until the original due date. They can have learning problems and developmental delays caused by prematurity.
The normally accepted age of viability (the age a baby can survive outside the womb) is 25 weeks. There have been cases of babies surviving at 24 weeks but normally they do not. Even at week 25 babies face pretty big challenges.
Answer . i had my second son at 27 weeks pregnant. He is now 17 and perfectly healthy. You would never have guessed he was premature.
Yes. Of course it varies, but babies born at 31 weeks have a very high chance of surviving. Babies born on week 25+ are surviving (although some sadly donÂ´t).
According to resent statistics, A baby of either sex at 34 weeks gestation has about an 85 - 90 % chance of survival.
Yes, there is def a chance but it is very individual concerning damages and especially with the lungs.
The average time to be able to begin to feel a baby move is around20 weeks. It is highly possible though for some women to feel thebaby move as early as 12 weeks, especially if they are very thin orif it isn't the woman's first pregnancy.
They can do, it is around the borderline. The baby will spend a very long time in the neonatal intensive care unit and usually will have to have support with breathing since the lungs are not fully developed.
Highly likely - due to advances in medicine and post-natal care. Babies have been born much earlier and still survived. yes but they are considered premature.
at 12 weeks you're baby is about 2 inches long and weighs half of an ounce. Check out www.pregnancy.com you can see you're baby week by week. God bless
Your baby just over 2 inches long and weighs about a half of an ounce which is equivalent to the size of a lime.
Born 18 weeks premature, on 7/13/10 at 1 Lb. 9 Ounces and 11 Inches Long http://preemie.info/cms/modules/news/ Finally, we have two cases at 18 weeks. Note: For a listing of eleven such early survivors, see the 1989 edition of Abortion Questions and Answers (Willke. Hayes Pub. Co. pp. 60, 61…). http://www.christianliferesources.com/?library/view.php&articleid=1253 A number of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they were younger than 24 weeks -- the upper age limit for abortions. The study, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology , revealed that some of the babies who initially survived terminations were only in the 18th week of pregnancy and more than half were under 22 weeks. http://health.dailynewscentral.com/content/view/0001453/40/ A NUMBER of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed.

No.. "Average" weight at this age is 4.4lbs. So your bubs is pretty much spot on.
Your niece delivered a 1 pound 4 ounce baby boy after gestation period of five months can it survive to be a health baby?
YES! DONT LOSE HOPE! I WAS BORN AT 1 POUND 4 oz, now im a helathy 20 YR OLD> not blind, deaf, mentally disabled or anything that they said i would be!!!
Yes, the baby (fetus) start moving at 7 weeks but you can not feel movements until your are between 16 to 20 weeks. At 12 weeks your baby still too small for you to feel the kicks, specially if it's your 1st pregnancy. Cangrat!!!
A baby can survive at 24 weeks. we have better technology these days where anything is possible. If you had a baby at 32 weeks she will most likely have to stay in the hospital till she is considered full term, or better yet breathe and eat on its own.
No, it is too small for you to feel movement. You won't feel flutters and kicks until around week 17 or later.
My son was born at 23 1/2 weeks. They gave him less than a 10% chance to make it. He weighed 1 lb 6 1/2 oz. Now he is 6 years old, as smart as a whip and very healthy. So to answer your question.... YES!
Yes, but not usually. I was born at exactly 22.5 weeks and have reached adulthood without any serious medical complications. However, I was very, very lucky. Children born this early very often have serious health complications, including blindness, deafness and mental retardation. Premature babies …often have additional health problems in their first few months, as they have not fully developed. I had apnea - basically, I would stop breathing at unpredictable times - due to underdeveloped lungs. There are others, but it would be better to try a medical organization for those details. I recommend you try www.prematurity.org for more information. (MORE)
Your baby has an excellent chance of survival! At week 29, your baby has a 90% of survival if it were to be born that week.
Babies born after 22 weeks have a great chance of surviving, the earliest baby to survive in the UK was 21 weeks. So nearly all baby's that are born at 31 weeks live, although there is that small percentage that don't but this is unlikely if the pregnancy has been fine and healthy all through the re…st of the pregnancy. I had a baby girl and she was born at 31 weeks and is absolutely fine although she did only weigh 3oz 8. and had to stay in neonatal unit for 3 weeks (just to gain weight) I hope this answered you question thanks (MORE)
Don't think so. From week 24 they can be saved, but w20 is awfully early. As NICU care has improved over the last 40 years, viability has reduced to approximately 24 weeks, although rare survivors have been documented as early as 21 weeks. The first thing survival will depend on is being in the …right hospital for the birth - after that it depends entirely on the number of complications following birth and how well the baby pulls through each of them.

Amy lives longer than 5 weeks. She's still alive at the moment, and she's about 4 months old
Do you mean a 12 week fetus? At 12 weeks the fetus is roughly 2 inches (5.5cm) long and is roughly 0.5oz (14g)
You probably won't feel your baby kick until around week 16 and 22, even though the baby has been moving since week 7 or 8. You may have already witnessed these movements during an ultrasound. This is often felt as a fluttering feeling or a grasshopper walking across your belly during the first move…ments. (MORE)
At 12 weeks is fully formed, but very, very small (too small to survive). He or she already looks like a proper baby. The baby is only 2 inches (5.5 centimetres long) and weights 14 grams (0.5 ounces). He or she already has eyes (which are fused shut), ears, a liver (that is already creating bile), …kidneys (which are already producing urine), a bladder and basically everything else. His or her heart has been beating for around 6 weeks already and the heartbeat is visible to hear and see on an ultrasound. He or she will squirm if touched because he or she already has nerve cells and is starting to be able to feel pain and other sensations. (MORE)
haha no its still very small and not large enough to kick against you its like the size of your index finger or even less depending.
maybe. it might survive but it will be very tiny. it's lungs are not fully developed at that point. it will be on a breathing machine but in some areas like Africa it will die
My best friend just had her baby at 30 weeks and he came out 3lbs 2oz and is doing very well. Your baby might have to stay in the NICU for awhile though . Good luck!
Yes. The 50% survival rate is around 26 weeks so a baby born 10 wweks pre-term at 27 weeks has a decent chance of survival
You can always put it up 4 adoption! Depending on who that dad is just keep it! can't do much harm then screw up your sleep!
Yes, but it won't be easy. It would need much work in the hospital to keep it alive. That said, I have a distant relative by marriage who was born at 23wks, and is a healthy beautiful young lady. Same as above with me, I was the same situation and I am perfectly fine. I will start at a community co…llege in the fall as a Criminal Justice major. I spent a LOT of time in the hospital when I was born @ 1lb and 13 oz and it was really hard on my parents, but the hardship will most likely relieve itsself in time. (MORE)
No, they aren't. Not enough to breathe on their own. If your baby was born at 28 weeks, they would need help to breathe. Lungs are mature around 35 weeks.
with the help of the march of dimes more babies are suriving dying and there is a possibility of the child of passing but the sucess rate is growing more and more every day
Absolutely. My daughter was born at 33.5 and had no complications. She stayed in the NICU for 16 days to learn to nurse and use a bottle (baby's aren't coordinated enough to do this until 35 weeks). She was 4 pounds 15 ounces---almost 5lb, the size of many twins! My water broke so I had 2.5 days o…n bedrest in the hospital waiting. They gave me a shot of steroids which could have helped her develop her lungs. They say girls develop faster in the womb, but my friend had a boy born at 33.5 weeks exactly the same situation, no problems, home in over two weeks. Now it is awful to leave the hospital each day without your baby, emotionally very very tough, but the baby should be fine. Do not worry. (MORE)
Absolutely! If a baby is born at just 38 weeks, its considered full term. A baby born at 37 weeks should be just fine! From about 26 weeks can a baby survive. I have already seen a baby who was born at 25 weeks and who has survived.
It is the average length of time it takes for a fertilized egg to turn into an offspring. The fetus gestates during that time.
the answer is yes. A baby can survive if born at 24 weeks although would need special care, a baby was born at 21 weeks before now and survived :)
The survival rate of a human newborn at 24 weeks is about 40%-70%depending on individual circumstances. The odds go up by about 3%each day around this time. My brother was born 3 months early, andhe lived and is perfect and healthy.
well that depends if put in intensive care it probably will survive if it has muscular it will lower the chances greatlly to about 70% of surviving and i had problems with my veins so it was a 50% chance of me living but i suvived so if in intensive care the it will all most definitely will survive …but if not then probably not (MORE)
On average a baby at 32 weeks weighs about 4 to 4 1/2 pounds and is about 17 inches long.
Yes, the worlds longest recorded pregnancy was a whopping 375 days (53.5 weeks). Click on "Prodigiuos pregnancy" under "Related links" below.
At this time a baby born at 18 weeks is still to premature to survive.
Its not like they just add 2 weeks, they measure from your last period and its 40 weeks from that. Most women have a 28 day (4 week) cycle and since you usually ovulate around the middle of your cycle and that's usually about the time you conceive, its like the basically add 2 weeks from when you pr…obably conceived. So for purposes of counting, its sort of like your 2 weeeks pregnant when you conceive. seems crazy but that's how they do it. (MORE)
If a baby is being delivered at 37 weeks gestation is it best to have steroids a week before to help the baby's lung function?
Your choices would be to have an amnio to check for lung maturity or just have the injection. Since the amnio presents risks of it's own I would suggest having the steroid injection as a safeguard to your baby's health if this is what your doctor recommends.
No they can not. There has been a few cases in this world but in general no. The question was water breaking, not birth. Yes, your baby can survive. The hospital will put you on bed rest, repress birth with drugs and inject you with steroids to promote faster growth. As long as you can hold of givi…ng birth for as many weeks as possible, there is a good chance the baby can survive. (MORE)
Yes but the baby would be so early it would have to be hooked up to machines for a while because the lungs r not fully developed. So they cant breathe very well
