hi i'm new to this site, I am 35 weeks along. I've been to the hospital the last 2 days. The first day I was dialated to 1, effaced 80%, -2. The second day i had progressed to 3 cm, 90%, stil -2... Its now midnight, i've been having contractions the last 5 days, but the last 2 have been about 5 min. apart or less. The dr. told me to take benedryl and tylenol for the pain and to slow contractions I think. BUT i'm still having contractions about 8 min. apart, strong enough not to be able to sleep through. I feel alot more pressure now than I have... I see my dr. in the morning, i'm going to try to stick it out till then....Any kinda of info on baby's born at 35 weeks would be appreciated....?

I wouldn't do that if I were you. I really think you need to head to L&D and get checked out again. 35 weeks is a bit early, and if they catch labor early enough there are medications that can stop it. They may also decide to keep you in the hospital on bed rest. Please go and get checked, that is what they are there for. Good luck to you.

I've been treated for preterm labor since I was 28 weeks. I'm 34 weeks and 4 days and was told they wouldn't really even try to stop my labor now. At the worst, your baby might need a little help regulating his/her body temp and might need a little oxygen....basically a very breif stay in the NICU. More than likely he'd be totally fine. I'm having my son in 12 days at 36 weeks.

Research and doctors say that a normal pregnancy lasts 37-42 weeks, and any baby born before the 37th week is dubbed preterm, but can be born perfectly healthy. So, yes, 35 is considered too early, but early births are not uncommon. Just keep close to medical care and take care of yourself and that child.
