Hello. I know that pregnancy is normally 40 weeks. but I always hear of women going into labor earlier than that...I was curious about what week of pregnancy that some of you ladies went into labor? I'm 27 weeks now, and I'm just anxious to know about what week women normally go into labor...is it really 40 weeks??? thanks.

I have come to the conculsion that those little ones come when they and God is ready for them to. I am 26 weeks and from what I heard I would not want to go into labor early. I heard thathaving a premature baby can be stressful. Although I cant wait I want him to come on time , healthy and normal. I pray for that everyday. Labor is between 38 -42 weeks. They can come 2 weeks early or late.

I just want to clear one thing up, because I just went into a pregnancy chatroom and I asked the same question, and I got b___hed out by all these women....I'm not saying I want a premature baby at all...This is my first pregnancy and I'm just a little excited about seeing my baby, and I was just wondering if everyone actually went 40 weeks or a little earlier, I don't want here to come out now, because I'm only 27 weeks, I was just wondering if it is possible for her to be a couple weeks early or even late...these ladies in the chatroom were calling me selfish and a b___h for wanting my baby early..and thats not what I meant at all! :-( I'm sorry for the mix up...I was just curious about how early (or late) I could possibly go into labor...

I for one was not thinking that. I would think that any woman in her right mind would not want her baby early. I feel the same way. I wish that September would hurry and come. I tell my self the same things I wrote. Although I want my baby now I dont want him to come early. sorry to make you think I thought you were thinking that. I find that people same to jump to the wrong conclusions. I feel that all pregnant woman get anxious a lot of times. I really do I have started to picture what he looks like. His father was born with blue eyes which changed to light brown when he got older. I would really love for him to have those, but that is the least a healthy normal baby is what I want. Much love !!!!!

No, Karen, I knew that you weren't thinking that, I was just trying to clear it up before someone else took it the wrong way :-) I'm also waiting for september to come, I'm just so excited! :-) good luck to you and your baby.

From what I know full term is considered 37 weeks and you are over due after 42 weeks. Anytime after 37 weeks would be fine for me... with my first he came 1 week early so I am hoping this ones comes early too. The last weeks are so hard and I am anxious to meet my liitle one.

Thanks, Oh all kind of weird taughts are going through my mind . Things I should not be thinking etc. I try to block them out. I bought all my baby stuff (at least what I will need the first go off) I am planning to put up the baby crib in August could not stand to see it now. I picture him everyday and love feeling him move. I know excatly how you feel. Why time cannot fly when you need it to. I guess when those little ones are keeping us up at 2 in the morning we be wishing they were still in us so that we could sleep,..... or maybe not. I cant wait to see.
