My doctor said because I'm young and small (95 pounds at 19 weeks) my baby will probably be early.

that means nothing theres plenty of young small women who give birth late. I was maybe 115 lbs at 20 weeks with my son and he was born late. Just don't get your hopes up that the baby will be early. A lot of first pregnancies go over due.

It's not what you want or what your OB thinks. The baby will come when he/she is ready. Just because you are small in no way means you will go early.

They say teens normally go over due, so I wouldn't count on baby coming early.

Teen moms are at a higher risk to have premature babies actually

why would you want to have your baby early?? and at 19 weeks the baby wouldnt be viable yet, it would be considered a late miscarriage.. so take your little booty to l and d and quit chatting on here .. losing your mucous plug can be a very small deal, unless there is bloody show.. btw ladies my mucous plug on both pregnancies was NOT bright red.. I had a streaky dusty rose colored strings mixed in it and i had them the same day and 2 days after both times.

Show me something that said an 18 wk old baby has lived.

There are 18 week olds that can survive, yes most die but not all of them.

That says 18 weeks premature, which would mean they were born at 22 weeks. The most premature baby on record that had survived for a longer period of time was born at 21 weeks.

The link you posted said were born alive or survived abortions. No where in there does it say they survived in general. Only living for abouy 4 1/2 hours I don't personally think is much in the way of survival, anyone born at that gestation at this point in time would not be able to make it.
