Quoting Andrea0510:" no 40 weeks is full term. but they want you to at least make it to 37 weeks. OP i'm sure your baby will hold out a little longer just take it easy! not to much longer for either of us! :D"

This not true. My two girls were born preemies @ 36 weeks. Maybe he said pre-term, but full term is 40-42 weeks. Term is 37-39 weeks.



Op. Dont stress you dont have to much longer to go & with no dilating yet there's a good chance you will make it to term or full term.

40 weeks is closer to 10 months actually...

No, it's right in the middle, closer to 9 months. But it's irrelevant anyway and has nothing to do with her statement of 36 weeks being term. Nice first post, by the way. Totally convenient.

37 weeks is term. I have seen on a few sites if that's where you are getting your info that is says 37-40 is full term, but don't ever listen to the internet. 36 weeks is still pre term. 40-42 weeks is full term & anything passed that is post term. At least, that's how it was explained to me.
