A term pregnancy is between 37 and 42 weeks form the start of the last period, that is 35-40 weeks from conception. The earlier a baby is born before this the more dangerous it is. Most babies born after 28 weeks will be ok but before that it gets a more problematical.

The youngest baby EVER to survive was around 22 weeks and 6 days, but I don't know how healthy she is.

The other variable is the health of the mother and baby before the birth. My Daughter had twin boys at 25 weeks, They were 1 lb 9oz and 1 lb 5oz. They were in the nicu for 3 months. They are now 8 months old and weigh 16 and 14 pounds. Myself and my husband now have custody of them. They are devolopmentally behind but are on time for their actual due date, they have acid reflux and have to take medicine for it. Because of the NICU experience my daughter never bonded with them. I just wanted you to see the leaps and bounds that the medical field is making in helping babies to make it. BTW, these are really GOOD babies and they are our pride and joy.

its not safe to have an early labor, but yes its safe at 32 weeks because we now have technology that will help out the little one to live. The earliest baby that was ever born was 21 weeks, and that baby survived.

Dogs can give birth in 4 months after one birth.

Mice tend to give birth about 3 weeks after getting pregnant however my mouse gave birth SIX weeks after pregnancy so be patient. They do not give birth at any particular time or day but usually when they are uninterrupted which is probably night. :)

I think the earliest baby that ever survived was 21 weeks? But babies born early are very sick and do not survive a lot of the time. The earliest that is normal to have the baby is 37 weeks, which will be about 3 weeks before you due date. I had my last baby at 35 weeks and he was 6lbs 9oz and very healthy. It's dangerous to have it earlier than that because the lungs haven't developed enough for the baby to breathe on its own.

Toads do not give birth to live offspring. The females lay eggs which hatch tadpoles after 2 to 3 weeks.

Consult your doctor. They had to have given you the prescription and give you the best answer that question.

Female dogs give birth within 9 weeks of being pregnant. You determine the date of birth from the date of mating.

You can start giving away the kittens at 12 weeks. The earliest you should give them away is 10 weeks, but it is preferable to delay weaning until they are at least 12 weeks old because these kittens will grow up to be more emotionally secure cats.

Gestation is about 24 weeks for a koala.

At 40 weeks it's not called a miscarriage but stillborn. You will have to give birth as if the baby was alive. They will induce the labor.
