If I was to go in2 labor @ 35 weeks would she be okay? I called the hospital because i'm having some contractions here and there and they told me i need 2 come in because it's way to early and they need to stop the labor. but my girlfriend had hre baby a month early and he was fine just his body temperature was kinda low that was it.

  • MOST babies end up just fine, but since it is before 37 weeks and not full term, you should get checked. Its more to be cautious, but its always better to be safe.

  • odds are your baby will be fine. My dd was, she was breathing fine and came home with me 2 days after she was born. She was small though 5 pounds 9ounces other than that she was fine. If you are concerned then you should go in though. maybe they can hold your baby off for two more weeks and then it will be fine.
