What would you like to do?
Yes, if proper care is taken
Answer i had my second son at 27 weeks pregnant. He is now 17 and perfectly healthy. You would never have guessed he was premature.
The baby should be fine.

Yes. Of course it varies, but babies born at 31 weeks have a very high chance of surviving. Babies born on week 25+ are surviving (although some sadly don´t).
Yes, there is def a chance but it is very individual concerning damages and especially with the lungs.
Highly likely - due to advances in medicine and post-natal care. Babies have been born much earlier and still survived. yes but they are considered premature.
Born 18 weeks premature, on 7/13/10 at 1 Lb. 9 Ounces and 11 Inches Long http://preemie.info/cms/modules/news/ Finally, we have two cases at 18 weeks. Note: For a listing …of eleven such early survivors, see the 1989 edition of Abortion Questions and Answers (Willke. Hayes Pub. Co. pp. 60, 61). http://www.christianliferesources.com/?library/view.php&articleid=1253 A number of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they were younger than 24 weeks -- the upper age limit for abortions. The study, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, revealed that some of the babies who initially survived terminations were only in the 18th week of pregnancy and more than half were under 22 weeks. http://health.dailynewscentral.com/content/view/0001453/40/ A NUMBER of babies have been born alive after only 18 weeks of pregnancy, research has revealed. Dozens more have survived terminations even though they are younger than 24 weeks - the upper age limit for abortions. Some were able to move around, breathe normally and even cry out. Many lived for more than an hour, and one survived for four and a-half hours. http://www.thefreelibrary.com/The+babies+who+are+born+alive+after+18+weeks-a0134883445
A baby can survive at 24 weeks. we have better technology these days where anything is possible. If you had a baby at 32 weeks she will most likely have to stay in the h…ospital till she is considered full term, or better yet breathe and eat on its own.
Your baby has an excellent chance of survival! At week 29, your baby has a 90% of survival if it were to be born that week.
Babies born after 22 weeks have a great chance of surviving, the earliest baby to survive in the UK was 21 weeks. So nearly all baby's that are born at 31 weeks live, altho…ugh there is that small percentage that don't but this is unlikely if the pregnancy has been fine and healthy all through the rest of the pregnancy. I had a baby girl and she was born at 31 weeks and is absolutely fine although she did only weigh 3oz 8. and had to stay in neonatal unit for 3 weeks (just to gain weight) I hope this answered you question thanks
Don't think so. From week 24 they can be saved, but w20 is awfully early. As NICU care has improved over the last 40 years, viability has reduced to approximately 24 weeks, al…though rare survivors have been documented as early as 21 weeks. The first thing survival will depend on is being in the right hospital for the birth - after that it depends entirely on the number of complications following birth and how well the baby pulls through each of them.
Amy lives longer than 5 weeks. She's still alive at the moment, and she's about 4 months old
No its unlikely.
Absolutely. My daughter was born at 33.5 and had no complications. She stayed in the NICU for 16 days to learn to nurse and use a bottle (baby's aren't coordinated enough to d…o this until 35 weeks). She was 4 pounds 15 ounces---almost 5lb, the size of many twins! My water broke so I had 2.5 days on bedrest in the hospital waiting. They gave me a shot of steroids which could have helped her develop her lungs. They say girls develop faster in the womb, but my friend had a boy born at 33.5 weeks exactly the same situation, no problems, home in over two weeks. Now it is awful to leave the hospital each day without your baby, emotionally very very tough, but the baby should be fine. Do not worry.
yes, he or she may need a little help but will be able to breath
The child has a very small chance of survival.
At this time a baby born at 18 weeks is still to premature to survive.
