That's BS and you know it.
What's the point of research if it's useless in giving us timetables?
I did not suggest that ALL women would follow a certain timetable to the letter every single time, but to say that timetables are useless and can never be supported by research is crazy.
Let's see, off the top of my head, research has given us a timetable for the average length of pregnancy, the average time it takes for hcg to rise in early pg, the average hcg for a viable pg, the average time to expect cardiac activity via transvaginal u/s, the statistical chance of serious complications if a pg is allowed to continue past 42 weeks, etc etc etc. All timelines, all clearly supported by research.
You may not LIKE that there are timelines for ensuring the best outcome, but that certainly doesn't make the facts go away.
