  • 37 is full term in the sense that most 37 week olds will not need to go to the NICU if born then. Personally full term is when the baby is born without being induced or mom cut open, be that 37 or 44 weeks of gestation. For my 2 kids it was about 39 weeks and for my girlfriend all 4 came between 42-43 weeks.

  • It is going to vary from doctor to doctor. I was told 36 weeks is considered full term. Personally I would say 38.

  • 37 weeks. Most doctors wouldnt consider induction or anything like that until 38 weeks though. And even then, you never know just how the baby has developed. The baby will come when its ready. But its usually considered safe at 37-38
