They say 37 weeks is full term. I went into labor at 32+5 and they gave me a steroid shot and his lungs were fine and we left the hospital after 48 hours with no problems. He is now 6 years old and in first grade and doing great. My baby girl is 2 weeks today. I went into labor with her at 37+5. We had a water birth at home and she came out after 15 minutes of pushing.

I had placenta previa with my daughter and she was delivered at 34 weeks.  She was 6 pounds 7 oz.  Her lungs were almost ready at that age she was on CPAP in the NICU.  You should be fine you r considered term
