I delivered my 1st son at 33 and he was fine.  His lungs were a little under developed and he spent some time in the hospital,  but overall he was ok.  If your having cramps i suggest u call ur doctor and go to the hospital to make sure everythings ok.  Wish u the best of luck.

I know a girl who had her baby born at 27 weeks and she spent about 2 months in the hospital. She's doing really great now you wouldn't even guess she was born premature. My doctor told me to keep hydrated and drink at least 2 liters of water a day. Anything less can lead to early contractions. Wish you and your baby the best of luck I'm sure everything will be fine.

Yes if your daughter was born now she'd survive with minimal health issues but would probably spend a few weeks in the Nicu. My SIL just had her baby at 36 weeks even though her body started going into labor at 32 weeks. At the hospital she got medication to stop labor and her baby got medication to help him develop quicker. He won't be in the Nicu at all and she is healthy and happy.
