  • I wouldn't know. But wouldn't it be better for the baby to go full term?

  • Lol....i sometimes wished time had moved faster but i never wished for a premie. I was a premie myself, born at 26 weeks. They didn't think I'd live. Not something I'd wish to go through.

  • Maybe weirdos with Munchhausen by Proxy. You know they want the attention they would recieve from having a sick baby.

  • 26? That's pretty early! That's more than a month early isn't it? I just wonder if premies have more health issues growing up than a baby that went full-term and if so why would having a baby early be an option for some women? Unless you're only a few days. But I know some women want the baby sooner.

  • i dont think its so much a premie but smaller babies are easier to deliver....my son was 6 weeks early and hes never been really sick....nothing but colds here and there...like most babies....but it varies....me personally i like small babies....but thats not to say i would want a premie
