  • I don't know what the PP just said. I don't blame you for being worried. I think it's a good idea not to take mommy advice from a pregnant woman who smokes! Not trying to be offensive, just common sense! Likely baby will be alright, but it's good to be safe. Drink LOTS of water and keep yourself healthy. Get out of the house and away from the smoke as much as possible. I would find a different place to live, if you can, because you don't want baby breathing this stuff after you give birth!

  • Anytime after 37/38 weeks is considered full term. I would try to limit your exposure to second hand smoke and keep yourself healthy.

  • hormones
    genetics
    stress
    injury

    other reasons a doctor may want to take a baby early:
    complications for the mom (preeclamsia being the main one)
    complications with the baby such as interuteran growth restriction, and others
