  • any time before 37 weeks is really taking a risk and u will feel bad if u do it early and then the baby has to struggle to breathe! also the dr should do an ultrasound to see how big the baby is. if under 7 lbs i say no! but its really up to u and ur dr

  • My OB told me as long as your kid reached 34 weeks and is healthy then it is fine to have your baby AFTER the 34 week mark. I had my DD right at the 34 week mark and she was healthy as can be and she 6 pounds. BUT, it is up to u and your doc. Hopefully things will be ok.
