  • Not really any. Between 37-42wks is considered full term.

  • There is no risk. My first son was 3 and a half months early and he is perfectly okay. He was a little behind on the crawling and walking but he is doing great. You are pretty much full term so i would not worry to much.

  • 37-42 weeks if full term so are you meaning 2-3 weeks early as in 34 to 35 weeks? Or are you going off a 40 week pregnancy and meaning 37 to 38 weeks?

    If you mean 34-35 weeks then your baby's lungs can be underdeveloped. If you mean 37-38 then he/she should be fine!
