Pregnancy (gestation) is the maternal condition of having a developing fetus in the body. The human conceptus from fertilization through the eighth week of pregnancy is termed an embryo; from the eighth week until delivery, it is a fetus. For obstetric purposes, the duration of pregnancy is based on gestational age: the estimated age of the fetus calculated from the first day of the last (normal) menstrual period (LMP), assuming a 28-day cycle.

[...] Excessive fetal size should be suspected in large multiparous or obese mothers, those with diabetes mellitus, or those whose weight gain during pregnancy has been greater than anticipated. Predicting the end of pregnancy constitutes one of the major problems of perinatal care. The factors that lead to the initiation of labor and the subsequent termination of pregnancy remain unknown. This is the case for both late termination and premature termination. A prolonged pregnancy is a gestation that has advanced beyond 2 SD from the mean and with a duration of weeks or longer (297 days). [...]

[...] This is the lowest number since 1987. The birth rate of 1997 was a record low. Likewise, the fertility rate declined to matching the record low of 1976.* Indeed, the fertility rate appears to have peaked in 1990 at after having been 67.1 in 1988. Neonatal Interval The neonatal interval is from birth until 28 days of life. During this interval, the infant is referred to as a newborn infant. The interval may be divided into 3 periods: Neonatal period birth through 23 hours minutes. [...]
