  • My son was born at 34 weeks and he did great....he had trouble breathing because of the c-section and the fact that i had a placental abruption...they said if it wasnt for that he was developed just fine. Try not to worry....im sure everything will be fine. Congrats on your little one!

  • Most likely he'll be just fine. Both my kids were at 32 weeks.
