Can a baby be born at 18 weeks?
A baby can be born at 18 weeks. However, he/she would not live. The earliest a baby could survive outside the womb is 21 weeks, and this is very, very rare.

You should call your doctor if you haven't been able to keep anything down for 24 hours. This is nothing to worry about. A woman's body is AMAZING! It takes care of the baby …before it takes care of you :) There are many women that have extreme morning sickness and their babies are just fine. However, if you are having symptoms that are more severe than regular flu symptoms or if you "just don't feel right", then do call your doctor.
\nYes. Babies born after 36 weeks gestation are considered full term and are usually just fine.
hey look don't worry iam 18 weeks plus 3 days and i just look like i have but on a little weight but iam still in my same clothes and especially when i sit down i just have a …huge jelly like roll its only when i stand it looks a little more noticeable and i look around at the petite and skinny women who look really pregnant and i get a little disheartened but you know what it doesnt matter cos we all are different and the world would be a boring place if we were all the same and as long as i know that my little miracle is in there that's all that matters make the most of it because when you do get the huge bump you will probably be wondering what all the fuss was about so try to relax and enjoy this bit cos like me in a another month or two we will be suffering with swollen feet and exhaustion and really wishing it was all over. i know its easy for other people to say what iam saying but believe me you will have plenty of time with the huge bump soon just hang in there hope it goes okay and i hope i helped in a small way. good luck x
Born 18 weeks premature, on 7/13/10 at 1 Lb. 9 Ounces and 11 Inches Long http://preemie.info/cms/modules/news/ Finally, we have two cases at 18 weeks. Note: For a listin…g of eleven such early survivors, see the 1989 edition of Abortion Questions and Answers (Willke. Hayes Pub. Co. pp. 60, 61). http://www.christianliferesources.com/?library/view.php&articleid=1253 A number of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they were younger than 24 weeks -- the upper age limit for abortions. The study, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology , revealed that some of the babies who initially survived terminations were only in the 18th week of pregnancy and more than half were under 22 weeks. http://health.dailynewscentral.com/content/view/0001453/40/ A NUMBER of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed.

266,000,0 babies are born in a week
its not bad dnt worry but its just to early
no they can not be born in 28 weeks that would be weird
About 2.6 million babies are born in the world each week and about 1 million people die.
i'm 12 weeks into my second pregnancy and starting to feel flutters in my stomach. I recognize this as fetal movements. With my first pregnancy, i only realized the baby was m…oving at 16 weeks.
It wont be something wrong with it because it's born after 42 weeks instead of 40. Might be bigger that's all. Most women go over the expected date.
The baby is 15cm long. See the related link for a picture
I'm guessing that you mean at 44weeks gestation - i.e. a month 'overdue'. While it's not common for caregivers to be comfortable witha woman continuing beyond 41-42 weeks gest…ation, due to fears of the placenta becoming less efficient and potentially compromising baby's well-being, it is a woman's choice whether to be medically induced or not. There are certainly historical cases of woman carrying babies well beyond their due dates. Another thing to consider is whether the woman's normal menstrual cycle is particularly long (the average is 28 days) - if so this will have affected the conception date, and therefore while her official due date calculated by her last period may in fact be a couple of weeks out... so that 44 week baby may in fact be right on time! This is particularly relevant if the woman chose not to have an ultrasoun scan during the pregnancy, which provides information on dating the pregnancy. Good luck!
The baby should remain with the mom until she is comfortable letting him or her go. This is the mother's only chance to hold, snuggle and look at her child. She may want to ba…the the baby and dress him or wrap him in blankets. She may want photos taken or she may want her baby baptized. This should not be rushed and a grief counselor maybe needed to help the parents through this tragic event.
One of the most common causes of premature birth is that the mother has pre-eclampsia, the only way to cure it is by delivering the baby. The mother or baby may have an infec…tion which triggers premature labor. The cervix can open slightly and allow the waters to break, so an open pathway for infection means the baby has to be delivered. The baby may have a condition which can only be treated once it is born, or the treatment may trigger premature labor. In a multiple pregnancy babies often just run out of room and have to be delivered, also a multiple pregnancy may trigger pre-eclampsia. Often no one knows is the answer.
Everyone feels movement at different times, especially with a first pregnancy. Many woman do not feel strong movements until 20 weeks or later. If you are concerned you should… contact your dr.
