# Time? It is not time?

of
 of “When he will be born?“ - you think, looking at the fairly rounded tummy and attentively listening to what occurs in you. It would seem, it is already time to go to maternity hospital, but here came 40 - I am week, and you still do not notice any signs of the coming childbirth. So there passes day, two, three... seven. Probably, to the kid it is so good and cozy in you that he does not want to be born yet. What to do?

## we Will verify calculations

First of all you need to see a doctor. Together with it you once again determine the estimated term of childbirth: this calculation can be made, being guided for the first day of the last periods, on the first stir of the child (if you become a mother for the first time, you will feel it on 20 - y to week of pregnancy if the second or third - on 18 - y to week), on data of ultrasonic scanning.

 of If perenoshenny pregnancy is followed by various “the aggravating circumstances“: for example, future mother is more senior than 30 years and it is her first labor, or the child settled down “incorrectly“ (legs or buttocks forward), doctors will prefer to make by her Cesarean section, without waiting for the beginning of childbirth.

Besides, it is possible to calculate the term of childbirth and the number of weeks of pregnancy on usual or according to a special round calendar of pregnancy which, by the way, was published in the Happy Parents magazine (fall of 1999). Perhaps, as a result of calculations you will find a mistake in the term of the pregnancy, and then you should wait for the beginning of fights patiently... But if estimated date nevertheless was quite exact, you will need to pass small inspection.

At first the doctor will examine you and will listen to heartbeat of the child, then will send for ultrasonic research which will help to define a condition of the kid, his growth, weight, and also amount of amniotic waters and extent of aging of a placenta. It is known that to 36 - 37 - y to week growth of a placenta stops and by the end of pregnancy its thickness makes about 3,3 - 3,6 cm. In other words, the placenta “grows old“: it becomes thinner and cannot supply the child with necessary amount of oxygen any more. From - for it the kid lacks for oxygen - a hypoxia (it is defined, listening to heartbeat of a fruit, and confirm the diagnosis by means of cardiomonitor research). Then, by the end of pregnancy, the amount of amniotic waters decreases and if the woman “perekhazhivat“ the term, then, most likely, during ultrasonography doctors will find in it lack of water.
