If you are 30 weeks can you go into labor?
Yes. It is possible to go into labor at any point. It might not be healthy for the baby to be in labor at 30 weeks, so it's best to get to a hospital and be examined by a medical professional.

Answer . \nA normal pregnancy lasts 38-40 weeks. Starting at 37 weeks is not too much to worry about - lots and lots of babies come early.
Answer . Possibly, or it could mean you have a larger than average baby, or too much amnionic fluid, or your due date is incorrect.
\nYou can go into labor at any stage of pregnancy and 34 weeks is quite a common time to do it. Babies born at 34 weeks, although not fully mature, usually do very well.
If the baby weighs what it should at 37 weeks but you are only 35 weeks and experiencing contractions is it safe to go into labor early?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nHello, Jamison here, \nAs 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.\n. \n Answer \n. \nIf 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. ( Full Answer )
Answer . well....... i am on my forth pregnancy now, i am 39 weeks, i took caster oil with my third and labour began with in 2-3 hours after taking it, but this time around i have tried it all currys, treadmill, sex, even caster oil but none of the above has worked, so i really dont think you ca…n start yourself off, it will just happen when it is ready too, and there will be some people who will disagree but that is my theaory, as i would have swore by caster oil last time and this time it did nothing, my body just must have been ready for it then.......

Answer . You can have sex since sperm has prostaglandins (sp.) softens the cervix. Plus sex causes you to release the oxytocin hormone which helps to trigger delivery if your uterus is ready. I've also heard that exercise and pumping breast milk helps.. ANSWER . There are lots of ways to indu…ce labor, I am a Doula & have been trained in these methods, some work for some women others do not:. sexual intercourse. nipple stimulation (constant & prolonged). walking. spicy food. castor oil (2 TBS in a glass of OJ). Stair climbing or curb walking. there are accupressure points a Doula can manipulate for you that can induce labor. you can also see an acupuncturist to induce labor. to find a local Doula go to www.DONA.org. to contact me for more suggestion or if you have questions: www.myspace.com/APeaInThePodDoulaServices ( Full Answer )
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.
Why would you want to induce labor that early? The babys lungs are not ready yet. Let it come on its on , at least wait until 37 weeks.
Based on my research you can try a fast. No food, and even try to take very little liquid. This was based on the fact that in Israel, there is a religious holiday that requires fasting and the rates of baby delivery are much higher the next day compared to any other day of the year. You could also t…ake black and blue cohosh, or manually open the cervix. You can find information on these techniques by searching the internet - these are the serious ways to bring it on. You could also ask your doctor for prosglandin (spelling?) which will thin the cervix. My doctor doesn't want to do it, but babies are full term at 38 weeks, so I don't see the problem. Why wait until you are uncomfortable and the baby is huge? They can gain that fat from nice healthy breast milk. I had my son at 36/37 weeks and the delivery was great and he was healthy. Good luck Answer I took long walks. There are wives' tales (hang curtains, scrub the floor, castor oil), but in general it is best to let nature take its course. ( Full Answer )
Answer . This is way too early to go into labor as your baby is not yet ready to live in the outside world. Babies are not considered fully mature until at least 37 weeks, and even then some of them will need longer. A baby born at 34 weeks is considered to be premature, and may well have to have… special care to enable them to breathe. Trying to bring on labor at this stage will not work. The methods usually used will only increase the chances of going into labor if the body is ready to give birth anyway. This is not the case at 34 weeks. ( Full Answer )
How soon can labor be expected if you were 2 cm dilated and 60 effaced at 30 weeks and hospitalized for preterm labor now on bed rest at 32 weeks taking nifedapine 4 times a day to stop contractions?
Answer . I was put on bed rest and Nifedipine at 29 weeks. I was dialated to 1 1/2 and 50% effaced. I am now 38 weeks. I have been off of Nifedipine for 1 week now and am 60% effaced and not dialated. You could very easily make it to you due date.
Answer . I dont think you can go into labor just because the head is low. When your ready to go into labor. Toward the end of pregnancy, the uterus reaches maximum size, the placenta begins to age, and the level of the hormone progesterone begins to drop. Your body becomes more sensitive to the c…hemical oxytocin, which triggers labor contractions.. Just because the head is low wont induce labor any sooner...best of luck!. http://www.ynhh.org/maternity/labor/index.html ( Full Answer )
omg. what r u thinking. forget yourself and think about the child. now and always
No.. That's a ridiculous amount of weightloss for one week. A surgeon might be able to take that off you in that time but not an exercise program.
You will not go in labor normally at 32 weeks of pregnancy, when you take Castor oil. But then this is not universally true. So you do not give such a brisk purgative to the pregnant woman, at this stage of pregnancy.
I am 39 weeks pregnant today with my second child and want to know the same thing!!. With my first i tried castor oil at 39 and 40 weeks and just got the runs BIG TIME but no baby, also tried walking, bumpy 4wheeler rides, eating a whole pineapple and sex every day, but nothing happened.. At 40 we…eks and 2 days i heard of acpressure and did that for 3 hours from 530 til 830 pm while watching tv. At 2am that morning i had my show, mild contractions all day then hard labour all night and the next day, had a healthy 9lb12 girl at 2pm the day after (36 hours start to finish).. This time i will get a sweep in 5 days time and take caulophyllum and do the accupressure, as my baby is already in the 9 pound mark and posterior.... Altho i will still do a bit of accupressure this whole week to hopefully dialate cervix a bit, and am taking EPO and inserting it "up there" every night.. Press the webby bit in between finger and thumb quite deep and hard for 1 minute and stop for a minute, do this for a few hours and it might work... or google it... ( Full Answer )

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 baby 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 ( Full Answer )
Ask your doctor. i lost my son at 26 weeks due to water breaking, your child will NOT live if born this early!
You dont! the baby comes and ur water breaks and theres no way you can make yourself go into labor.
That is too early--your baby will be sick or not survive. Be patient for another couple of months; the time will come.
Yes, a woman can go into labour at any time during her pregnancy. When it occurs determines what medical definition it gets. If you go into labour before 37 weeks it is called preterm labour. The infant born will then be called "prem" If labour occurs before 22 - 23 weeks it is called spontaneous ab…ortion. ( Full Answer )
if you use a foot massages the next day you are most likely to go in to labor.
Well, the most natural thing I know to help induce labor is walking, and orgasms or intercourse. Here is a link that will give you a whole list of things that can help to naturally induce labor: . http://pregnancychildbirth.suite101.com/article.cfm/tired_of_being_pregnant
I don't think we have yet been able to "predict" exact birth dates yet. You would be able to predict better than any stranger. I would probably just stay close to the hospital and/or a vehicle with a driver and have an in house baby sitter for those other 3 kids of yours....because it is going to be… pretty soon. Full gestation is 40 weeks, for all pregnancies and are deemed "full Term at 37 weeks, with Dr's being comfortable with inducing labor up to 10 days prior to EDD (Estimated Delivery Date). If you are extremely uncomfortable, I would talk to them about inducing labor. I had to have induction on my 2nd child to prevent the baby from being too big during birth. In comparison, everything went smoothly and I was more comfortable before, during and after the birth. I was also able to tie up final projects and be fully prepared. ( Full Answer )
40 weeks pregnant have had stomach ache back pain could you be going into labor and how long until labor?
It is possible that it would be sooner than you would expect. It could also be that you are laying in bed in an unknowingly uncomfortable position.
NO NO NO!!! Do not use Castor Oil ANYTIME during pregnancy! It is a harsh stimulant laxative and yes, it can make labor faster, but only if labor is ready to start on it's own. If you take it too early, it will not make your labor begin, but WILL most likely make you sick. I tried it, and wish I wou…ld have taken this warning serious, but like most women stuck at 40 weeks I was desperate. What Castor Oil does is loosens your stools. It causes you to have uncontrollable vomiting and diarreah. You can become seriously dehydrated and whats more is it passes thru the placenta so then you have a tiny baby making his/her first bowel movement in their warm safe home, turning it into a toxic nightmare! I took the max. dose of Castor Oil a week before I went into labor hoping it would speed things up. When I finally got to 7 cm, the doc broke my water and found there was meconium staining (baby had already pooped inside my uterus). This was the scariest thing for us. If a baby breathes in or swallows meconium they can be born with severe breathing problems (the poo is tar-like in texture and causes their little lung to be stuck closed) and even death (it is very toxic to a baby). Thank God my son was born without a drop breathed in or swallowed, but I know several other babies that werent that lucky. Please, give your baby the safest journey into the world and let him/her come on their own! ( Full Answer )
nipple stimulation, walking, sucking your thumb (it hits a pressure point at the roof of your mouth... all of these stimulate contractions.. Congratulations!!!
There is no way to get labor going until your body is naturallyready for it to happen. You can however choose to work your babylower into your body by walking or doing labor exercises.
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 : )
It is possible, but some mommas walk around 2 or 3 cm dilated for a couple weeks. It also depends how effaced you are. Just make sure to call your doctor and go to the hospital (L&D) if you have regular contractions - for some women they simply feel like menstrual cramps at first!
Talk to your doctor about the options. Maybe have it induced, but first talk to your doctor.
You don't. It's selfish of you to try to rob a fetus of a vital growth period in the womb.
you should definitely go to the hospital! if anything, they should induce you for being overdue...good luck!
Yes. Every pregnancy gets faster than the last one so you should get to the hospital or call your midwife.
Although all the baby's organs are formed it is not yet fully developed or mature enough for an independent existence. If it survives it will need specialist care in a neo-natal unit for many weeks and may have developmental problems. Only a small percentage of babies born at 24 weeks survive.
A full pregnancy normally last 40 weeks so 24 weeks is not a time to be in labor. If you are having any abdominal pain/cramping this could be very serious and you need to go to the doctor right away. A 24 week old baby would have very serious medical problems.
Generally, labor is not induced at 36 weeks, as the baby is still considered preterm An infant needs the additional time in the womb for lungs to be mature enough to breathe on the outside. Don't rush things. The baby will come when it is time. Good luck.
I was 36 weeks, 3 cm and about 70% effaced, I did not go into labor until theexact day I hit 39 weeks. I kept thinking, any minute now, but I ended up sitting around for 3 weeks at 3 cm or more dilated, it drove me crazy with the waiting. When she finally did decide to come wow did she come fast, …I barely made it to the hospital in time. ( Full Answer )
Im 36wks and 3cm dialated but my cervix is not softened yet there is no sure way to get labor started your baby will come wgen it's good and ready!!
It could be that you are losing your mucus plug, so yes, it could mean that you are going into labour, but not necessarily
Yes, they will give you a large dose of magnesium which works as a muscle relaxer to stop your labor, then they will give you a smaller continuous dose to prevent you from going back into labor. I was 30 weeks pregnant, 3cm dilated and 80% effaced and they were very successful in stopping my labor.
Sometime in the next three weeks ! Only 5 to 10 percent of babies arrive on their due date. It really should be called an approximate date! Doctors are still not sure what the mechanism is that causes labor to start. They know it is the right combination of hormones, causing contractions that wil…l thin out the cervix to 10cm, and then cause the baby to be pushed down and out. But is it your body or the babies that trip the switch? They don't know. They know your body actually starts preparing for labor up to a month before you give birth. You may be completely unaware of what's going on --- or you may begin to notice new symptoms as your due date draws near. Here are some things that may happen in the weeks or days before labor starts: In a first labor the baby usually drops deeper into the pelvis before labor starts, but not always. When this happens you start feeling like it is easier to breathe, a little less pressure under your ribs. You may notice the baby is a little less active just before your labor starts too. If you have been having Braxton Hicks contractions, sometimes as true labor is getting close they become more painful, but the sign of true labor is the contractions keep coming no matter what you do, they become longer and stronger and closer together. A way to know the difference, drink a large glass of juice, take a shower, then lay down to take a nap. True labor is too painful to sleep through, but being dehydrated can cause contractions, being tense will make them more painful. So stay hydrated, stay relaxed and keep up on your rest. Over the last nine months a "plug" of thick mucus has sealed your cervical canal, some women notice white or pink tinged discharge as your cervix thins - shortly before you go into labor. The fact that your cervix is starting to dilate and thin out is a good sign that all is working as it should. Usually the bag of water your baby is floating in will not rupture until labor is under way, not always. It may break in a gush or may be a slow drizzle. But when it happens you should call your doctor or midwife, normally the fluid is clear; the presence of meconium, your baby's first stool, which is sometimes a sign of fetal stress and is important information to share. Note it it is thin and stringy or thick - yellow, green or brown. It's also important to let her know if the fluid looks bloody. If you think you may be in labor, but you aren't sure? Call - that's what the doctors are there for. If she can't tell over the phone she may have you go to the hospital to be checked, don't be upset if they send you home. Until you are in active labor home is the best place for you, you can relax, move around as you wish, bathe and eat light meals to keep up energy - all things usually deprived if you are delivering in a hospital. Walking, is also your friend, let gravity do some of the work for you. Any of the following are symptoms to share with the doctor, sooner rather than later: You have severe or persistent headaches, vision changes, intense pain or tenderness in your upper abdomen, abnormal swelling in your feet, legs, arms or face. You have vaginal bleeding (more than "just bloody show") constant abdominal pain vs contractions that come and go, or a fever. You notice that your baby is less active. Enjoy the last days of your pregnancy, it is something most of us only experience a couple times and most of us just want it to end at this point. But remember, this is a special time too. If you can get a manicure, pedicure and enjoy a nice soothing massage, now is the time. No telling when you will have a chance again. ( Full Answer )
I know that even the thought of going through preterm labor is a terrifying one, at 30 weeks of gestation, your baby has very good outcome ratio. The sickest and smallest preemies are born as early as 23 weeks of gestation and they are the ones exposed to many, many hurdles until they reach 40 weeks…, or full term. I do not know the reason behind your worries, if they have been confirmed by a medical professional or if they are worries associated with some symptoms you are currently experiencing. My baby was born at 24 weeks of gestation due to incompetent cervix and premature rupture of membranes also known as PROM, and delivered via Cesarean. After some respiratory complications and many months of ICN care, he is now 6 months old and does not have any complications from his prematurity. If you do go into labor 30 weeks into your pregnancy, be prepared for some hospitalization time for your baby. Also remember that every week you are still pregnant counts. In general, over 95% of babies born between week 30-33 of gestation grow to be perfectly healthy children. The ones that are at risk are babies born with certain abnormalities in the vital organs, kidneys, liver, etc. The hospital stay is typically between 6-8 weeks depending on how your baby is growing and developing. Although like with every baby born prematurely the risk of developing complications is higher than the percentage of the same risk in full term babies, at 30 weeks of gestation your baby has very good chances of overcoming his prematurity faster than younger preemies.

I've tried it all... my #1 recommendation is walking. Lots of walking! Castor oil only messes you up, sex can soften the cervix, but walking helps everything right along :)
This is 9 weeks premature and is not medically advisable. It would be irresponsible of us to provide an answer for something that's this dangerous. If due to some special circumstance your physician feels that it would be a good idea in your particular case, he'll know what to do already.
It is very hard to predict exactly when you will go into labor, but a few signs that labor is coming soon are: * Loss of your mucous plug * The baby drops * Braxton hicks contractions become stronger and more frequent
If a baby is born at 36 weeks, the baby will probably be fine. Many women go into labour at 36 weeks.
Yes, this is considered to be premature labour. The baby is likely to survive and eventually be OK, but the baby will need to spend a significant number of weeks in the neonatal unit.
Absolutely not. The baby isn't even fully developed at 30 weeks. He or she would spend several weeks in the NICU, if it survives at all. Just wait, I am 38 weeks pregnant now and I don't rgret waiting so my baby is healthy. It would be safe to trywhen you are considered full term, after 37 weeks. Al…so, everyone says all natural induction methods fail unless your body is ready for labor. When you reach 37 weeks though you may try sex, walking, pineapple, certain herbs, accupressure, and maybe some pregnncy yoga. Good luck, when you reach that point. ( Full Answer )
