Baby at 36 weeks.

I'm just wondering if anyone had a baby at 36 weeks. My Dr. thinks I could go anyday now. I'm 36 weeks today and 3 cm and 80% effaced. I'm just wondering how your babies did if you had them that early.

Well I had my son at 37 weeks and ya he was small but that was expected and even though he was small he was healthy as a horse!!He had no problems not even jaundice.Some babies though don't do as well so you never know till they come.

I have and she was fine. You have to remember that they can be wrong on your due date and that your little one will come when ready no matter what. I have a good chance of mine coming 2 weeks before what they say but I know exactly when I ovulated and so on.

They had me on bedrest and she told me on Mon. that by the end of the week I could resume my daily life, but I still think 36 weeks is early. She said they wouldn't stop labor at this point.

This is true, it can be off by 2 weeks either way or there about. good luck w/ your baby =)

I was on bedrest for the majority of my pregnancy due to fear of preterm labor.  At 36 weeks they decided to induce me because my DD wasn't gaining any weight.  She was small when she was born ans still is, but was perfectly healthy and is doing great.

My 2nd son was born the day I turned 36 weeks. He was perfectly healthy breathing on his own and everything.  He was 6lbs 3ozs and 19 inches....I tend to have big babies so its probably good he came a little early.

I had my son at 36 weeks and he was just perfect. No complications. He was a big boy 7lb 9oz due to gestational diabetes.

I had my baby at 36 wks. He was born on Christmas day :) perfectly healthy 6lbs 15oz and 20inches. The only problem we had was that he wasn't eating very much at first and we had to stay an extra day until he ate at least an oz each feeding but now he eats constantly hehe. Good luck.
