  • 36 weeks is starting your 9th month.

    My doctor considered anything after 37 weeks full term though.

  • 36 weeks is the 9th month but is typically not considered full term. 38 weeks is full term and anything up to 42 is a great time for the baby to come. Up until then there could be complications.

  • 36 weeks in starting the 9th month! & my doctor considers 37 week or past full term! & if you go over 40 weeks its not considered past due either.

  • Yes, 36 weeks is 9 months. Doctors don't consider babies full term until 38 to 42 weeks. My doctor will not induce or do a planned C-section.unless medically necessary before 39 weeks.
