October 27, But should you keep going to work as usual, or fumble through the car seat installation instructions and get that birth bag ready? A simple ultrasound could help with this decision, new research suggests. Ultrasound measurements of the cervix, the passageway at the entrance to the uterus that opens up to make way for a baby during delivery, can reveal whether labor is likely within the next week, according to a new study. Guessing game, waiting game Though most women are given an official due date, it is often just a rough estimate.
Only 5 percent of women deliver on their due date, according to American Academy of Pediatrics. A healthy pregnancy is, on average, 40 weeks from the last menstrual period, but in reality, most babies come sometime between 37 and 42 weeks gestation. For many women, that five-week window creates a waiting game that can feel unbearable. Women with little paid maternity leave may want to work until the last possible moment they can. Those whose due date has come and gone may wonder whether they should have labor induced with drugs.
And pregnant women who already have other children often scramble to find child care during labor. But there haven’t been reliable methods to tell a woman exactly when her baby is coming.
A second trimester morphology ultrasound is performed in the middle part of the pregnancy, usually between 18 and 20 weeks gestation.

All future pregnancy scans and fetal growth milestones are performed and measured against this timeline. Generally the date of your EDD will not change unless a later scan predicts an EDD that is plus or minus 7 days of your original date.

That sounds pretty cush to me. I would love to do nothing for six hours! While administering a standardized test, the only two things you can do are 1 walk around the room, and 2 watch students take a test. No writing, drawing, doing crossword puzzles, or Sudoku. No lunges, jumping jacks, or anything that would distract students. No grading papers or getting caught up on work. No sitting for more than a few minutes. No standing in one place. The State would call this “actively monitoring.
Because of this, I’ve become somewhat of an expert in creating mental and physical activities that can be done while actively monitoring that won’t distract children or get you in trouble. If you’re not a teacher, you can use any of these the next time you’re getting an CT scan! First of all, wear a pedometer.
Set up a contest with other teachers to see who can get the highest step count during the day. Just kidding or am I?
