  • Most definitely! I've had all my children vaginally, at 36 weeks, 34 weeks, and just short of 37 weeks =)

  • I had a 32 weeker vaginally. Usually when they speak of preemies that are a c section there is something else wrong like placenta coming detached, hbp in the mom, GD, HELLP, stuff like that. Then that baby is a preemie to save either the mom's life or the babies and they must get the baby out fast. My son just wanted out and still to this day he can't seem to wait for anything. Impatient little brat I tell ya. Even 2 trabutiline shots couldn't stop him.

  • It is better for the baby if it is born vaginally it will have a better chance to breath naturally without assistance.

  • Of course. I had 2 early, one at 34 and one at 35 weeks. Why would they let you deliver early without trying to prolong? Most babies do fine at that age but it's always better for them to stay in the womb as long as possible.

  • OP here I got high bloodpressure, and they are unsure my heart can handle this... already stopped labor 2 times, doctor thinks it would be safer to deliver the baby if i start labor again
