IUI/IVF Gestation VS Natural Conception

Postby BBee » Mon Oct 17, 2011 6:25 pm

I know the average gestation of 40 weeks applies to pregnancy, but I though it would be neat to research the average gestation when you KNOW FOR SURE what day you conceived.

I was able to find a study that said the average gestation for IUI pregnancies is 39.5 weeks. Does anyone have any experience with this? I know in the end, every baby is different but I'm curious to see if there is proof that many go "overdue" simply because their EDD is based on their LMP or what they THINK may have been their LMP..

I'm really curious about this as well. In my childbirth class they said that first time moms usually go 41 weeks and 1 day but I'm really curious to know if that's because their conception date was off.

What a coincidence!

I forgot about this thread... unfortunately I wasn't able to go into labour naturally due to a breech c/s. I'm eager to see what others' results are though!

I did IVF with my DS and I started having contractions a few days before my EDD of 10/19. Thought my water was leaking on 10/17 so went into the hospital (it was a weekend) They kept me and he was born 10/18 one day before his EDD! :)

I am probably not the best case study on this, but for me I had a natural pregnancy which resulted on a c/s at 35wk due to PROM and failure to progress. Then I had IUI resulting in twins born at 36wk due to mild Pre-E. Now I am pregnant again and they won't let me go past 39w (if I make it that far). I am already showing signs of shortened cervix.

I can finally answer this question. I went into labor 3 days past my dd, but I was in early labor since 37 weeks and when my baby came out it was apparent that he was ready before he actually came. No vernix on him and there was meconium in the water. If his hesd wasnt turned in a weird way he would have been earlier.
