Sonething doesn't....feel right.
I've had a nagging crampy/achy feeling since yesterday and my....instincts (?) Are telling me something is about to happen.

I'm only 36 weeks...if I go into labor now will they let me deliver or try to stop it until 37 or longer?

I would hope they stop it, your are not full erm yet and your baby needs to grow and develop the lungs, still.

It's different for everyone, hon.  Go lay down for a little while, if you can, and if you still feel this way when you wake up, go get looked at.  Better safe than sorry.

Really I'm not sure. My waters broke at 36 weeks and of course delivered. Good luck.

Just go in and get checked out to see. My 3rd was born at 36 weeks 6 days.

They may try to delay and put you on a steroid to

The babies lungs develop faster.

Just checking! And to answer your question, there is no definite answer. They have to evaluate the baby and address the situation based on whether or not it causes more difficulties leaving baby in there, or delivering early. Good luck!

I had 3 at 35 weeks.   They tried to stop one and it didn't work.  All 3 were healthy and went home on time.
