A Chinese woman carried a full term pregnancy for 17-months instead of the normal 9 months, setting a new world record for longest pregnancy.
A Chinese woman identified as Wang Shi, has set a new world record for the longest term pregnancy, even though unintentionally.
The woman who is currently 17-months pregnant, has agreed with her doctors to have her baby by a caesarean section if it proceeds into the 18th month.
Wang Shi who became pregnant in February 2015, had her due date set at November 15, but the baby never came. The worried mother kept going to the hospital every 7-10 days for her antenatal, and doctors said they couldn't carry out an operation in the 14th month because the foetus was still not mature for it.

According to her husband, the baby is in good condition and his wife is well. He also said the reason for the delay is unknown.
Here's what he said: “Experts say there are women who gave birth after 13 months of pregnancy, but never 17 months. They can’t explain the reason.”
The former world record for longest pregnancy which resulted in a live birth was held by Beulah Hunter, who carried her pregnancy for 12 and half months in 1945.
