elective c section is considered in some cases by doctor... and unless it's an emergency,doc will wait for baby to touch a certain gestational maturity .. usually 36-38 weeks.. by then if delivery is done by c sec,babys lungs would have enough strength so that he won't develop any breathing issues... so go with wot ur doc says...

hi.. it's nothing serious.. actually it happens because of different counting methods for pregnancy age.. actually gynaec usually count the age of baby from LMP... whereas if counted by ovulation day,it will fall around two weeks plus some days before LMP.. so it's ur +2 weeks of gestational age than wot u calling 'actual'. n then in sonography,technician will count the age acc to LMP and babys growth as in length or weight.. give another picture.. n for error corrections,they give gestational age in another +or - two weeks.. another two weeks from actual!
