ladies, when did you have your babies and how dilated were you?
i am almost 33 weeks and contracting already. i am 1 cm dilated,so my doctor will be checking me every week now. this is my second little girl and i don't know why it started so early though. what is going to happen if i deliver the baby between now and 35 weeks,before full term?
have any of you had babies before 37 weeks? how did it go?
i need to know,to stay calm.

OK i have had 2 babies at and before 35 weeks... my son was born at 35weeks. he was fine. he went home the same time i went home.they do consider 35 weeks full term that's why they don't keep them long in the hospital.unless they are having problems i had my son in the town i lived in cuz they take babies 35 weeks and after and my daughter i had to go to a different town that's 2 hours away that do take babies before 35 weeks. my daughter was born at 32 weeks and had to stay longer then i would of wanted.. she was in the hospital for 2 months....and i was fully dilated at this time... i went in labor at 20 weeks was put on meds to help stop it..... i was dilated at 3cm at this point....we were preparing for her to come early.....i was held off until 28 weeks which my water broke and i was fully dilated at 10 but they didn't do anything just had me sit around in the hospital for 4 weeks. then she Finlay came...

you will have your ups and downs with a preme baby. some days are better then others. they sometimes have to have (breathing machine)(feeding tubes)(pix lines) and of coarse heart monitors are a gimmy...they do stay in the hospital after you check out. it could be a week it could be a month(plus) all depends on how the baby is doing...my daughter stayed for 2 months.. it was hard, but ya gotta do what you gotta do....The shorter the term of pregnancy, the greater the risks of mortality and morbidity for the baby primarily due to the related prematurity. Preterm-premature babies ("preemies" or "premmies") have an increased risk of death in the first year of life (infant mortality), with most of that occurring in the first month of life (neonatal mortality). Worldwide, prematurity accounts for 10% of neonatal mortality, or around 500,000 deaths per year.[3 In the U.S. where many infections and other causes of neonatal death
