A woman from China’s Hunan Province has set a world record for the longest pregnancy;
Wang Shi said that she was pregnant, but a whopping 17 months, local media reported.
According to News People’s Daily, Shi became pregnant in February last year, a term for delivery approved on November 5.
Wang every seven to 10 days goes to hospital, but doctors long have rejected the possibility of births by Caesarean section, due to the fact that ultrasound showed that the baby is still in the second development phase, and is not mature enough, even premature birth.
“experts agree that it is possible to carry a pregnancy for a period of 13 months and the world to bring a healthy baby, or 17 months, has not yet been seen. No one can explain why my wife yet unborn, “said husband Wang.
no matter what, Wang is in good physical condition, the baby weighs almost four pounds, and doctors plan to perform a caesarean section at the beginning of 18 months, provided that the work in the meantime do not move naturally.
the previous record for pregnancy longer had most of the American Beulah Hunter, who was born in 1975 after 375 days.
