What's the difference between a baby born at 36 weeks and one full term ? Will the baby act any different ?

My son was told after a colonoscopy, that his small intestines were on one side of his body and his colon on the other. His birth weight was only 4lbs and 5 oz. Born only two weeks early he was considered full term. Can this cause problems later?
Hard to know: The colon is part of your intestine so i'm not sure what your son was really told. I suspect that he was told he has a malrotation (though this is difficult to tell from colonoscopy). This is a dangerous condition and needs to be surgically corrected asap- to be able to say more i'd need to know the medical terms that were used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've had 4 full term pregnancys and im 13 weeks with my fifth am i at risk of incompetent cervix my cervix is very high and hard with soft edges?
My cervix was 4cm at 20 weeks and water bag broke at 21 weeks cervix was 2cm. Is it incompetent cervix? can we go full term with incompetent cervix?
Highly suggestive: Your presentation is suggestive of a loss of cervical integrity. The regression back to 2cm occurred because the bag of water broke. PPROM at 21weeks in the face of cervical dilatation, unfortunately, carries a poor prognosis. However, subsequent pregnancies can be have very favorable outcomes when treated with progesterone and/or cerclage and serial cervical ultrasounds. ...Read more
