Just wanted to see how many of you have had babies born at 38 weeks? Did they do well? What did they weigh? Were you induced or was it natural?

She was born at exactly 38 weeks. I was induced (two days of Cervadil first) because of high blood pressure. She weighed 6lbs, 15oz. She did go a little yellow (jandice) but other then that was and continues to be very healthy.

All three of my kids were born at 38 weeks. I went into labor naturally every time. They were perfectly healthy! My first weighed 7lbs 11oz, my second weighed 7lbs 5oz and my third weighed 6lbs 15oz

Both my babies were born at 37 weeks and both were great. 37 weeks is considered full term so 38 weeks should be perfectly fine.

I was induced at 37 weeks due to preeclampsia. He was born via c section, he was 5 lbs 5 oz and 18 3/4 inches (the size was due to preeclampsia. My second is already mesuring 4 lbs 9 oz as of last week and I'm only 33 weeks) He had some trouble breathing from fluid in his lungs but I was told it was due to the c section. He's perfectly healthy now :)

Bella was born at 38 weeks 6 days. She was 6 lbs, 2 oz and 19in long. APGAR scores were 9/9. She did great. Slept in my room that night.



I was induced due to (according to my dr.) "extreme pregnancy induced hypertension and on cusp of pre-e". It ended in a c-section :(

38 weeks isn't even considered early.
My son was born at 39 weeks by scheduled c-section. He weighed 7lbs 10oz.

I'm glad that all of you had healthy babies at 38 weeks. I'm getting induced Saturday, and I will be only 38 weeks. I was worried about his lungs a little bit. He was measuring at 4 lbs 5 weeks ago, so hopefully he won't be too tiny either.
