There have been a few as long as 11 months but the normal gestation period for humans is between 36 and 40 weeks.

Really 11 mouths
9 to 9 1/2 months is considered "on time."

But Rob the 11 months baby may need cesarean section,,,normally 10 month and 1 week is the most to have normal delivery,,,

The question was, "How long CAN a baby stay in the mothers stomach," not how long WILL it stay there in today's maternity hospitals. In historical accounts there have been some that long. The reason we don't see that today is that doctors manually break the water and induce labor when the mother is ready or go to the cesarean option. Those choices were not available in earlier times.

Meddle for ur information just:
The 8 mo. baby is not good to've him deliver, he'll suffer from the loss of surfactant, so usually to talk about baby say 7mo. and that over 9 mo. to 10 mo.
how long the baby stay he stay as long as the uterus can keep him,,, depending on the mother hormones and then uterine function,,if u like to let him in more then 11 is possible,,but only one time I saw that in a women from village but she suffered later after delivery,,,
