  • Depends on the person, your baby will come when its ready, 36 weeks is still a bit early and the baby still needs time for lung development.

  • Um..I was 40 weeks and 2 days when i went into labor naturally and he was born 7 hours later.

    Some people go early, some go over. Some have 3 hour labors and some labor for days on end.

  • It's different for everybody, no way to predict. You seem awfully impatient though (referring to your other question too). You're 36 weeks, it's too early to worry about that just yet. When your baby is ready, it'll happen, believe me. Personally, my water broke a week and a half before my due date, and I was in labor for almost 30 hours... But like I said, everybody (and every pregnancy) is different... I know those last few weeks are no fun, but be patient!
