When in reality, "full term" is 38-42. And that your baby may come somewhere in there or even later. Even the March Of Dimes has noticed this change and is calling for a change in the system. They have noticed the MAJOR rise in iatrogenic(doctor induced) prematurity in infants.

I do know that the doctor assume all all babies are ready at 40 weeks and that leaving them in there is tempting something to go wrong. They can't really say what, but that new attitude seems to be if they are ready to survive outside the womb get them out before something goes wrong. To hell with the risks of induction or surgery. Get that baby out! I think it is disgusting. And we will see the numbers swing toward more mother's dieing from pitocin induced strokes and mishaps in surgery. Doctors aren't good at waiting. They don't like getting up in the middle of the night. And way too many new mom's don't have somebody in their life telling them to stop whining! Whining about a normal pregnancy never occurred to me. My family would have laughed at me! Too darn many princesses out there, doctors included.
