  • Unless you are medically unstable, the docs will probably try to keep the baby in till 36 weeks at the very least. Remember that even though you are very uncomfortable, the longer the baby matures, the better it will do after birth.

  • Everyone is different. Its more up to your doctor than anything. No matter how uncomfortable you are you have to do it for the baby.

  • At least 6 more weeks unless there is really something wrong. And even at that point you might have another 4. The baby needs to develop and that is what you have to focus on. The longer they are in there the better. I don't think pregnancy is comfortable for anyone exactly. It comes with lots of sches and pains but in the end is totally worth it.
