I am aquaintances with a mom who recently had a baby 6 weeks before her due date. She said she was sick of being pregnant and couldn't wait to have the baby. She purposely tried to go into labor early by doing all the self-start labor techniques...walking, sex, etc. She was supposed to be on bedrest beginning at around 20 weeks. So she knew that if she did all this there was a HUGE possibility she would go into labor early. My question is, why would some women want to sacrafice the health of their unborn babies by having them premature just b/c they didn't want to be pregnant anymore.
She did have previous pregnancies prematurely too which tells me she felt it would be safe to have this baby way before her due date. But, still, why not do what the doctor says, stay on bedrest, and push for as close to the due date as possible?
