A child at 43 weeks of pregnancy
But if 43 weeks of pregnancy have already gone, then there is an occasion to think about. In this case, we are not talking about the child developing, although he does not stop growing: this week the weight and growth of the fetus continue to increase, the child reaches 4 kg. But speech can already go about its overripe.
This is evidenced by the following facts:
- skull bones are thickened;
- the skin becomes dry and flaky;
- the brain does not receive oxygen;
- the intestines are contracting - meconium enters the amniotic fluid.
Signs of a pregnant pregnancy also include a sharp decrease in amniotic fluid, signs of placenta aging, immaturity of the cervix.
All this can be established with a number of surveys. Therefore, at 43 weeks of pregnancy, you will be prescribed ultrasound with dopplerography, fetal heart rate, amnioscopy, CTG, as well as a blood test and, perhaps, an analysis of the secretion of the mammary glands. If the diagnosis is confirmed, a cesarean section or stimulation of labor will be prescribed depending on the condition of the mother and child.
A pregnant pregnancy presents a certain threat to the woman and the fetus. The situation as a whole can cause complications in childbirth. In addition, the further, the more the kid does not receive the necessary nutrients, from which the brains of the babies first of all suffer. And also increases the risk of meconium aspiration syndrome due to ingestion of the original feces.
Portable babies may differ from those, that were born on time. They have grown long enough nails and hair, but the skin is excessively dry and wrinkled with a cyanotic or yellowish tinge. Usually, these babies are more active and mobile than others.

But anyway, and you've been waiting for this moment for a long time. So you should enjoy it.
