  • with my first I was 38 weeks and 6 days. with my 2nd I was 39 weeks 1 day. You should get used to having her in there because your just barely half way there!

  • 35 weeks. my fluids were low. thankfully he did come out at 35 weeks he was already 8lbs 11oz...he would have been around 10lbs at full term!!

  • I was 36, and wish with all my heart that she'd been able to stay in for longer. But I had a premature rupture of membranes and it wasn't a tiny trickle. It was a huge amount and they were afraid of her umbilical cord starting to come out and getting clamped. I hope this one decides to cook for the full amount of time, regardless of how uncomfortable I may get.

  • 41 weeks both babies. You still have a while, why do you want her out? If your hating pregnancy now it's only going to get worse:)

  • 28 weeks.

    I get irritated (not aiming this at you-just saying this for you to see the opposite POV) when people talk about wanting to get them out early. I understand people get miserable when pregnant, but I would rather be miserable for the last 3 months rather than watch my baby almost die daily and suffer the way they do..nothing harder to see that your baby being in the NICU for 3 months not knowing if they will make it or not.
    Good luck to you and your pregnancy!

  • 40wk5 days and she was born 10 lbs 1.5 oz. i kinda wish she would have been early so she was easier to have, but she was perfect and healthy, and thats really all that matters.
