Woman in China claims she has been pregnant for 17 months, but doctors say they have no records One pregnant woman from Hunan says she was due to give birth on November 15th, 2015. It's now August 18th, 2016, and she's still pregnant. According to local media reports, the woman, named Wang Shi from Tianping city, became pregnant last February. Once her due date passed, she started to get a little worried. Since then, she's made a trip to the hospital for a check-up about every week or so. That has now added up to 30 trips and 10,000 yuan in hospital fees.
Even in her 14th month of pregnancy, doctors told her that she could not get a cesarean section because the fetus still wasn't mature enough. People's Daily claims that Wang's pregnancy gives China yet another Guinness World Record. The longest documented pregnancy is that of an American woman named Beulah Hunter who gave birth in 1945 after being pregnant for 375 days. A normal pregnancy will be about 9 months or 280 days. At this point, Wang's would be at least 517 days.
