  • Chances are everything would be fine, he would have about a 5% chance of having respiratory distress syndrome, so it's best for him to cook at least a week, preferably 3 or 4 weeks longer.

    Is it possible that you are dehydrated? If you don't have a history of pre-term labor, chances are it's just some regular, unpleasant, late-term pregnancy symptoms :)

  • my ob said they would not try to stop labor after 34 weeks, other than hooking up an iv with fluids. they believe success rates for the babies are really good after that point.
    imo, we should do all we can to keep our babies in. drink lots of water and lay down when you feel the cramping. it can help to take a bath and relax too! my dh is not allowed to fight with me b/c for me, that brings on contractions!
