I'm in 8th month of pregnancy, till my 5th month my due date was 14th and when recently I did my sonography it is 5th...even my full 9 months will not be completed by that date...is it normal ?

Hi Rashi, congratulations on ur pregnancy. I had faced the same situation during my pregnancy, my due date was 16 june however during my 7th month my due date was changed to 30 may. Wen asked I was told tht my dates were changed due to the size of the baby. N I need not worry. I gave birth on 27 may via c section. So pls dont worry as long as ur baby is growing fine however do talk to ur doc with regards to ur concern.
Till then relax n take lots of rest. All the very best.

Hi Rashi, your due date will keep changing as it depends on the development of your baby. Its okay if its changing . Please follow the due date given to you in the 6th week scan or according to your LMP.
Quick tip - it is safe to deliver after 36th week, if everything else is good.

Hey Rashi, like Dr Kataria said its safe to deliver after 36th week, don't you worry as it depends these days doctors are smart enough they induce normal delivery or suggest you c-section depending upon ur condition at the time of delivery.

due dates are estimated from date of the last period, they do not keep changing. your due date is actually a due month. most women go into labor fro 38 to 42 weeks. any doctor that keeps doing sonographies and changing due dates is not safe . I suggest u seek another doctor.

It is not safe to induce babies when doctors feel ready. babies release a hormone when their development is complete. The safest is to wait upto 42 weeks to let labor start naturally. find a care provider who follows science.

Only 2 sonographies are recommended in pregnancy if your doctor is going more than 2 i suggest u change your care provider. contact healthy mother hyderabad and birth village cochin.
