post dates

i just read a bit of an article posted on midwifery today- an online journal.

Postdates, by itself, is not associated with poor pregnancy outcome. Extreme postdates or postdates in conjunction with poor fetal growth or developmental abnormalities does show an increased risk of stillbirth. But if growth restriction and birth defects are removed, there is no statistical increase in risk until a pregnancy reaches 42 weeks and no significant risk until past 43 weeks. The primary “evidence” of a sharp rise in stillbirth after 40 weeks—often misquoted as “double at 42 weeks and triple at 43 weeks”—seems to come from one study based on data collected in 1958

i'm getting more and more anxious to meet him every day. but somewhere deep inside me still says "all in God's time".


  1. Liz
    I went 43 weeks and 3 days post due with Ansely..And she was FINE! Jedi will be here when God feels he is ready to come out :)
    I love you and am PRAYING for you everyday!

  2. Unfortunately we aren't talking about a hunky dory normal health situation here. Liz bolded the relevant information. A 43 weeker without T18 might be just fine, but there are more things to consider in this situation.

  3. May God continue to bless you, Elizabeth, with patients and courage as you await Jedi's arrival! I am praying for you!

  4. Im praying for you and your lovely baby. Trust in Him!
