Due Dates

An Estimated Due Date is NOT and Expiration date!

The only study ever done to see when a woman had her baby if left alone said 41 weeks and 1 day was the norm.

Where did the old fashioned "40 weeks" come from?

A German doctor arbitrarily decided pregnancy should last 10 moons (each "moon" is 4 week; the time from one full moon to the next).

Real scientific there.

And now doctors are increasingly taking babies at 39 weeks. The reason for this is mostly to avoid law suits and control their own schedcule.

But let me ask you; did God know what He was doing when He created women? Wouldn't it be healthiest for all concerned (Mommy and Baby) to let those mechanisms that God put in place decide when a baby is born (unless there is an obvious REAL problem, of course.)

Time in a Bottle

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
