Hello, Jamison here, As A rule it is not A good idea to induce or allow labor early, Only YOUR personal doctor can tell you if you need to give birth early, There are A LOT of factors to concider when talking about labor,,,,,,,,, My wife was 6 months early, She and her twin sister were The eariest babies in the county where they were born in Cali. in 1982, There were all sorts of complications for the two babies that TOGETHER WEIGHED LESS THAN 3 POUNDS at birth.,,,,,,,,,,,,, Good luck, Jamison. Answer If you have been working closely with your doctor and the baby is a good weight and you are naturally going into contractions then you and your baby will be fine. Your doctor will decide on what is best for you and your baby. New mothers can have false labor and be in and out of the hospital expecting to give birth sometimes once or twice. Sometimes the doctor is forced to enduce labor or perform a C-Section if the baby has not dropped and there is no indication of the baby being born two weeks after the due date.

Answer A normal pregnancy lasts 38-40 weeks. Starting at 37 weeks is not too much to worry about - lots and lots of babies come early.
How long does it take to go into labor if you are 37 weeks 4 cm dilated and fully effaced but baby hasn't dropped?
Answer The baby can drop in labor. It is always not easy to distinguish when the baby drops. I have had 3 children and never knew when they dropped I only …knew when labor kicked in.
The doctor gives you medication to soften the cervix and a drop to start contractions. Starting labor, and especially before you are due at 37 weeks, is something only doctors… do.
If you aren't yet 37 weeks (full term) and having labor symptoms, you need to contact your Doctor!
Is it possible to go into labor at 37 weeks pregnant experiencing back pain and cramps before my water breaks?
Answer Yes - see the doctor
If you are 37 weeks you have a 27 pound son should you be picking him up will that send you into early labor?
It isn't a good idea to be lifting objects late in pregnancy because the abdominal muscles that support your back are sometimes not able to do their job properly. You ma…y hurt your back and further weaken the muscles. I don't believe it will put you in labor, though.
A baby can survive outside the womb at 24 weeks (hospital staff consider it viable then, if it is before 24 weeks they will do nothing for your baby). The longer the bab…y stays in the womb the better it is for the baby, and the healthier the baby will be when it is born, generally any time after 36 weeks is considered full term & it is more than safe to deliver the baby. I am a Doula and have provided induction services, tips & techniques to many women to help them go into labor.....please contact me directly if you would like a list of things you can do to hopefully send yourself into labor, naturally (I would avoid drugs like Pitocin at all costs): www.myspace.com/APeaInThePodDoulaServices
No, full term is not until 37 weeks. after that, taking long walks, helps the baby move down, or having sex, always take water w/you if you are out walking. Ask your Dr …about getting induced.
You are 37 weeks and 2 days and you are dilated 2 and 90 percent effaced how soon should you go into labor?
You may not going into labor for several weeks. Women can walk around 4-5 cm dilated for a while before going into labor. Your body is doing some of the preliminary wor…k for you!
Will labor start soon if I am 37 weeks 2cm dilated station 0 and having lots of irregular contractions or can I still have a couple weeks to go?
There is really no straight answer for that. Your baby is fully engaged, but that doesn't necessarily mean labor is imminent. It does mean that your body is getting ready …though. Good luck!
There are a few ways to induce labor. Although it is very important to go full term so your baby gets all the things he/she needs. The things I have been told are spicy foods,… walking, and the biggest one is sex. Watch a REALLY intense horror movie : )
Talk to your doctor about the options. Maybe have it induced, but first talk to your doctor.
Sono on August 312009 from lmp you should have been 30 weeks but growth of baby was at 34 weeks weighing 4 lbs13 oz went into false labor on sep 16 2009 sono at hospital said you are 37 which is rite?
If your menses were regular before the pregnancy and you are absolutely sure of your dates, then LMP is to be belived. If menses were not regular or unsure of dates, the sono …is true. Also, at that gestational period, sono dating is +- 3 weeks.
In cases of Fetal Growth Restriction it is better for the baby to be delivered at 35 weeks, than to remain pregnant and possibly face further restriction or loss.
