  • my understanding is that the baby can have serious problems if born at 36 weeks. between 36 to 37 weeks, the baby's lungs develop a lot. everyday your baby stays in your belly will help! have you talked to your midwife/doctor about this? it could also be that your due date was calculated incorrectly, which could mean that you are 35 weeks, or you could be 37 weeks. i hope your baby stays in there at least one more week! good luck! if it were me i would not have sex because sex can bring on labor .

  • I agree w/the above poster, there is a lot going on. There is an important reason baby is still inside, just like baby was at 31 weeks... Not ready to come out yet.
    Is this your first baby?

  • yes i told the doc about the prussere he said for me to take it easy and if i do go into labor they wont stop it and told me some of what could be wrong with her but it was all short term things nothing long term

  • well i think there is a good chance that you will make it another week. i hope so! lots of women have this early labor stuff for over a week. but that's good that the dr says all will be ok!
