If any of you concieved with fertility help like chlomid or invetro and have delivered or had a previous child using this.... did you deliver right at 40 weeks or before 40 weeks? I know exactly when we concieved because we used chlomid and timed intercourse and ovulation tests so I was just wondering what my odds were of going the full 40 weeks ( I Hope not) or going sometime around 36-38 weeks. Any help you can give would be great. Thanks ladies.

I have a feeling you'll get mixed responses about this. Shy of delivering multiples early, I don't believe there's any connection between fertility meds and early/late delivery.

I haven't delivered yet, so take this with a grain of salt. I also have a long history of preterm labor which probably sways my odds. But I conceived this baby with Clomid and am told I'll never see my due date -- more than likely won't even see 37 weeks.

I have had one preemie and hope to go full term this time. If you go 40 weeks just be happy that you baby is healthy. You will meet them soon enough.

I conceived my first baby with Clomid. My water broke and she was born right at 37 weeks. She was still a good size - 7 lbs, 4 ounces and considered "full term". Within a few days of birth though, she developed severe jaundice and spent the next several days in the NICU. I heard many times that although she was full term, her organs weren't quite mature yet. She is fine today, but I say the closer you get to full term (40 weeks) the better! I know the last few weeks are the worst. I thought my second baby would be born around 37 weeks too, but he hung in until the bitter end!

Good luck!

i don't think you'd wish to deliver at 36 weeks as a baby is still considered premmie then, especially as their lungs develop late in the pregnancy - maybe 37 weeks onwards instead!
