Both my children were earlier than 40 weeks. Thirty-seven and thirty-five weeks respectively. They were both healthy. The youngest had oxygen for about 2 hours, then did well. I worked in a newborn nursery for 18 years, and infants 37 weeks are considered term. Infants of mothers who experience episodes of preterm labor are more mature due to being stressed in utero. I would say yes, in the absence of underlying conditions, a 36 or 37 week infant will be okay.
Yes. Babies born after 36 weeks gestation are considered full term and are usually just fine.
Absolutely! If a baby is born at just 38 weeks, its considered full term. A baby born at 37 weeks should be just fine! From about 26 weeks can a baby survive. I have already seen a baby who was born at 25 weeks and who has survived.
If a baby is born at or before 37 weeks it is considered to be premature
37 weeks. but the average is 32-36 weeks when they are born.
36-37 weeks it can be shorter or longer depending on the health of the mother... usually it is around 9 months (36 weeks)
A baby born before 37 weeks gestation
A baby is considered premature when they are born before 37 weeks gestation.
You can have it at 37 weeks, as they consider you full term at that point in time.
It can take anywhere between 9 to 10 months. 9 months is equal to 36 weeks and 10 months is 40 weeks. A full-term baby is born anywhere from 37-40 weeks. A baby born before that is considered pre-term, or premature, and after that post-term.
exactly like a baby. you are due in a week at 37 weeks.
About 37 weeks ... Human gestation period is about 9 months.
Yes, @ 37 weeks you are considered full term.

Yes 37 weeks is considered full term
37 weeks and earlier.
36 weeks is considered premature. 37-42 weeks is generally accepted as a healthy term.
This is not a common thing if you baby is only 5 pounds. The doctor has reasons for doing this, most likely because he feels it is safer for the baby to be born.
Talk to your doctor. Normal term pregnancy is 37-42 weeks.
37 weeks is considered a "full term" pregnancy. Before this time, the baby would be considered premature and could have health problems. Normal pregnancies last anywhere from 37-42 weeks.
There's nothing set in stone. Normally after 37 weeks a baby is concidered full term but could still have some unexpected complications. Before 37 weeks doctors are generally prepared for a baby who is likely to have complications but often even a 35 week baby will be delivered without complications.
A newborn baby is 40 weeks old. The gestation period in humans normally ranges between 37 and 42 weeks.
36 or 37
The medical term for preemie is a premature baby. A premature baby is born before 37 weeks gestation. A baby delivered after the 38th week is considered full term.
