  • im almost 37 weeks and having a c section becuase i have had one previously and the reason im getting the amino is becuase my doctor wants to know it the babys amino is mature if so he is going to do the c section soon because im having complications with heart and blood pressure ....

  • Uh...no. There are other reasons, like testing for infections or sometimes a baby's condition (other than lung maturity). What is your history? Why do they want to know if the baby's lungs are mature? Do you have a medical condition that requires they get the baby out right away? Do you have a history of pre-term labor? If the goal is to get the baby out as soon as possible, then they'll likely do the C-section as soon as they get results. If it's just to know whether it's ok to go ahead and take the baby if you go into labor again, they'll probably wait until that happens or until your originally scheduled date if you make it that long.

  • yes i have medical conitions and im high risk.. so he wants her out as soon as possible.... i have never had this done before...and im also wondering if it will be mature at 36 weeks and 4 days? i went into labor last week and got steriod shots so i wonder if that will help this?
