This really bugs me

Yeah. I subscribe to babycenter.com and get these emails/articles about development/delivery etc. This morning I got this article:

http://www.babycenter.com/204_obese-...13:7&pe=fi3D0S

And THIS just bugged the stink outta me:

Out of 143,519 pregnancies, 6.8 percent were delivered "postdate" defined as longer than 42 weeks. A "normal" pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. b

Uh. No! A normal (term) pregnancy lasts 37/38 to 42 weeks.

It's this kind of blatant misinformation that makes women feel like they must induce. I mean, they say it correctly and then CHANGE it. Blech.
