ACOG Changing Due Date Terms.
Sun, 10-27-2013 - 9:54pm

ACOG changed the terms for the due dates.  Between 37 and 39 weeks, they're calling it early term.  39 - 40 term.  41 weeks late term, 42 weeks and beyond, overdue.  They did this because they want women to stay pregnant longer, and not induce early except for medical reasons. 

What are your thoughts on this?
