at around 24, 25 weeks, a baby can survive with extremely high care from a hospital and will probably have a hard time with there lungs throughout life and would maybe stay in the hospital until there normal due date, so a baby at 31, would be able to survive, but would still probably need some close watch from a hospital for a little while

Sadly, there are no guarantees, even at full term things can happen. But the longer you go the higher the chance. 31 weeks has a very good chance.

There is a very good chance that a baby born at 31 weeks will survive, the baby will be in the NICU for a while, but I have know of several people who's babies were born at 29 and 30 weeks and their children are healthy now and doing great. Of course there is always a chance that the child could have complications for the rest of their lives.

I just read yesterday in a magazine that at 32 weeks babies have a 95% chance of survival

I WILL BE 31 WEEKS ON FRIDAY AND I ASKED MY DOCTOR THE SAME THING....HE SAID 100% SURE THAT THE BABY WILL SURVIVE WITH THE CARE WE HAVE TODAY.

I have read that at 28 weeks babies have a 90% chance of survival--I know that every day in the womb counts so I would think that 31 weeks would be about 100%. Do not know about long-term health though (esp. for around 28 wks) Our first was born at 34 1/2 weeks, had to be on oxygen for awhile, but is now completely normal and healthy.
