Answer . Yes, if given proper care in a hospital specializing in premature births. Babies down to 21 weeks can live, although there are often long-term problems. The main p…roblems are associated with under-development of the lungs.
It doesn't sound too good. If you haven't felt any kicks at all yet in the entire pregnancy OR if the baby WAS kicking before but isn't anymore (if he hasn't in 1 or 2 days), …you need to go to a doctor straight away!
depends on how healthy the baby is. and how much it weighs. It has to pass the Apgar test which is a serious of numbers that determine how well the baby is when he/she comes o…ut.
Bringing your baby home from the hospital is not based on how long your gestation period has been, but rather, how the baby does after it is born. At 28 weeks, it is highly do…ubtful that your baby will be able to leave the hospital right away, but there is a chance. Here is the criteria for bringing your baby home: *The baby needs to be able to keep his/her own body temperature stable (otherwise they have to stay in the warming bed at the hospital) *The baby has to have a strong enough sucking reflex to feed (otherwise he/she will have to be tube fed) *The baby has to eat a certain number of ounces per feeding all at once with minimal coaxing (The exact number depends on the size of the baby and the hospital's policies, generally 1 - 2.5 ozs.) *The baby has to be able to breath sufficiently on his/her own (If the baby is taking very shallow breaths, struggling, or grunting with each breath they will keep him/her) *The baby has to have minimal or no jaundice. (If jaundice is at a moderate or severe level they may keep him/her for treatment. This is fairly common in preemie babies) *The baby has to have a desireable weight. (This varies by hospital regulation. Many hospitals will not release him/her until the weight is 5 lbs.) *The baby cannot have any other special needs or medical conditions that would require a specialist, surgery, etc. *The baby does not have sleep apnea while in the nursery. (If the baby stops breathing in the nursery while it is sleeping, they may keep the baby for an extended day or two just for observation). *The baby has to be gaining weight. *And last, but not least, and perhaps the easiest criteria: The mother must have the appropriate resources and items for the baby. (My hospital does not allow us to leave until we have given them the name of the pediatrician we are using and until we have a carseat, which is no big deal) Some hospitals have reasons other than those listed above for keeping babies admitted after the mother is discharged. Some even keep the baby until he/she is 37 weeks, which is considered full term, due to their policies. Your best bet to get a direct answer is to ask your hospital staff what their policies are. Personally, my son was born at 34 weeks and we left together just fine. 28 weeks is really really early though, so your chances of taking the baby home when you are released are...extremely small. Just remember that the hospital has all of these regulations and policies for the safety of your baby. You definitely wouldn't want them to release him/her early and have something bad happen that could have been prevented by an extra week or two stay in the hospital.
2lb is the average weight for this stage. It is starting to gain weight now so it will be okay.
Yes, a baby has a chance at surviving at 28 weeks gestation.

No, they aren't. Not enough to breathe on their own. If your baby was born at 28 weeks, they would need help to breathe. Lungs are mature around 35 weeks.
with the help of the march of dimes more babies are suriving dying and there is a possibility of the child of passing but the sucess rate is growing more and more every day
Hey i am 28 weeks pregnant and you are 1 cm dilated my last baby was born at 34 weeks he was premature so does this mean that i am going to go early this pregnancy?
My sis in law had her first between 32 and 34 weeks and was afraid it would happen again with the second. Lucky for her number two was born the day before her due date and per…fectly healthy. Just try to relax dont stress yourself out and take each day as it comes :)
This is a dangerous sign , a sign of incompetent cervix. Avoid vigorous activity,no heavy lifting, raised buttocks to put no additional pressure on the cervix.
Over half the babies born before 28 weeks gestation need this treatment, while about one-third born between 32 and 36 weeks need supplemental surfactant.
In Tattoos and Body Art
uhh i wouldn't give a child a tattoo at 28 weeks when thy grow up they might not ecen want a tattoo you should wait for them to get older and decide for themselves
In Pregnancy Health and Safety (Prenatal Care)
No. The baby and especially the lungs are not fully developed yet but if there is nothing else to do they have to be born. This is something you need to discuss with your doct…or.
In Fetal Development
Yes because there is still enough room to move and aside from that the baby is still floating, not engaged.
At 28 weeks pregnant, the fetus has now grown to a weight of approximately 1.5- 2.2 pounds and is a little over two feet long at around 13 -14 inches.
