My Doc and I are considering an early delivery by New Year's Eve. My due date is around January 10th and she does not think, provided everything is healthy, that 10 days will hinder us from an early delivery. Not to mention babies in my family are pretty big and she doesn't want to the baby to be so big that she has trouble removing her in a c-section.
I want to be as prepared as I can be and though I hate needles I would have an amnio. Are amnio's the best way to detect or reveal that the lungs are matured enough for a 38.5 week delivery? I'm not worried about down's syndrome as DH and I have decided if our baby has down's then that is something we will face head on. His son is diabetic and mine is autistic, we aren't afraid of any adversity in the baby. We want to make sure the baby and I are both safe for an early delivery should it come available to us.
What else is provided in amnio results?
