  • "it" meaning the baby or the baby's lungs?

  • A friend of mine had her baby at 36 weeks after an amnio determined her baby's lungs were mature, and there were no complications. Mom and baby went home 3 days after birth, and both are fine (it's been a month).

  • Yes. Otherwise, they would probably not have induced her.

  • I had my DD at 36 weeks and the doctor didn't do an amnio. She was born healthy and weighed 6 lbs 2 oz. Don't worry and may God's will be done!
