All healthy, full-term pregnancies will last an average of 40 weeks.

Gravida is how many times you've been pregnant. Para is how many of those pregnancies got to 38-40 weeks. So this means the patient was pregnant 2 times and both pregnancies were carried out to the full term.

This means that this particular woman is currently in her second pregnancy and that the previous pregnancy was either spontaneously or electively aborted. There is an acronym to help understand this... GTPAL. G - The number of times the woman has been pregnant, including current pregnancy. T - The number of pregnancies ending >37 weeks gestation, or full term pregnancies. P - The number of preterm pregnancies ending >20 weeks but <37 weeks. A - The number of pregnancies ending before 20 weeks (viability), either electively or spontaneously. L - The number of children who were born alive or living. So, in the example G2 Para 0010, the woman is in her second pregnancy, she has had no full term pregnancies, no pregnancies that reached the stage of viability (20 weeks), she did have a pregnancy that was either electively or spontaneously aborted before 20 weeks, and she has no children.

gravida 3 means three pregnancies and para 2 means that only two of them progressed past 20 weeks

As far as i can see this doesn't add up. The Oxford Handbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology explains the terminology as follows: Gravida x, para a + b x= the total number of pregnancies (including this one) a= the number of births beyond 24 weeks gestation b= the number of miscarriages or termination of pregnancies before 24 weeks gestation Given this information, your example means that your lady has had 3 pregnancies (including the current pregnancy if she is currently pregnant). Para 0 means none of the pregnancies were delivered beyond 24 weeks. There has been one termination before 24 weeks. There is therefore one pregnancy unaccounted for in this example.

depending on the person and the number of pregnancies it could be hours to weeks.

Actually, the bleeding behind the placenta at 7 weeks gestation is called a "subchorionic" hematoma. This happens sometimes in pregnancies when the fetus attaches to the uterus. This is not necessarily a primary indication of a placental abruption and most pregnancies with subchorionic bleeds resolve after a few weeks

yes that's ok all of my pregnancies were that way
