POSTDATE PREGNANCY-Postterm pregnancy includes pregnancies that last longer than 42 weeks. -Postdate pregnancies last longer than the established or estimated date of confinement, also known as the due date in layman's terms (40 wk).-An obvious cause of both postterm and postdate pregnancy is inaccurate dating criteria-Accurate dating using the transcerebellar diameter. If the transcerebellar diameter cannot be obtained, the criterion standard for dating in the second trimester is the BPD (biparietal diameter).-When determining a management plan for postdate pregnancy (>40 wk of gestation but <42 wk), the first decision is whether to deliver a patient and, if so, when and by what route. If the physician decides not to deliver, the decision whether to institute antepartum fetal surveillance and what method(s) of surveillance to use must be discussed with the patient. Complications
