5-week variation in gestational length is seen in small study

A study reported in Human Reproduction tracked 125 women and found that while the average time from ovulation to birth was 38 weeks and two days, the time varied by as much as 37 days. "We know that length of gestation varies among women, but some part of that variation has always been attributed to errors in the assignment of gestational age. Our measure of length of gestation does not include these sources of error, and yet there is still five weeks of variability," said researcher Anne Marie Jukic of the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
