  • Yes. Stress can actually cause harm to the baby as well. Calm down and do what you need to do to relax.

  • :( im sorry. crying can cause contractions, because it is contracting your stomach! lay down on your left side, and drink some juice.


    :D

    Luckily if you do go into labor, your technically full term, and baby will be just fine!! :D


    I had my daugther at 37 weeks 2 days...

    and she was 6lbs 5 oz!!!

    Good luck mama!

    And tell boy friend to slow down~!

  • ACtually they cant tell you the exact weight of your baby.
    If they told you 5lbs 12oz, thats give or take 16oz!!!

    :D


    Still.. your baby would be fine!
