Is it true that the baby is formed completely by 32 weeks? Two of my friends got their baby delivered at 33 weeks.. isn't it too early? Anyone else with such case?
If it is true then I will mostly go ahead with it after getting scan and every check up done by 32 weeks because it is becoming very difficult for me to breathe day by day.. I have got asthma along with acidity..also during nights my nose gets blocked completely..I am really worried if I would be able to complete 40 weeks 😮
Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Payal M please help..

Kritika if not 40 atleast wait till 37 weeks when the baby is considered full term.


Thank you Kavita and Khushboo..will let my doc decide the best for me..will try my level best to sustain till the longest possible duration..

They Got babies delivered- didn't understand tht? 33 weeks is preterm. I'm sure ur GYN will advice u abt it.
37-38 weeks completion is best.
There r too many complications that preterm babies may land up with. Why would u risk that- Nicu stay, low birth weight etc etc


Dr. Payal M their babies had stopped growing so doc suggested them c sec at 33 weeks.. one of their babies was totally normal..that's I got curious to know how it is possible.. I know babies are considered full term at 37 weeks..I will try my level best...

Dear preterm babies are difficult to handle, You need to have a long conversation with your doctor or someone who knows about this.


Oh..okk thanks Becca!!!

Dr. Payal M

Kritika delivery has to be done in cases when it is felt that the baby cannot grow further inside or there is harm to mothers well being etc...these cases r exceptional. It doesn't mean that all babies can be delivered early.
At 33 weeks ur friends baby; might be normal but these premies will be having low weight and all the associated issues.


Okay thanks a lot doctor
