Is there any problem with premature delivery at 36 weeks?

Is there any problem with premature delivery at 36 weeks?

Not commonly.: Late preterm birth such as the one you inquire about at 36 weeks has increased risks for neonatal morbidities such as difficulty eating, breathing, infection and death - but only slightly compared to full term (39-40 weeks) births. Most 36 weekers go home with mom within 2-3 days of life and do just fine. ...Read more

These issues are usually anticipated and detected early, and with appropriate monitoring and treatment have no long term impact. ...Read more

If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?

If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?

Extremely: No doctor should consider this based on current guidelines. You should be evaluated for causes of a large infant. Elective delivery should not be performed prior to 39 weeks. Estimated size is not an appropriate indication for early delivery due to the inaccuracy inherent in estimating fetal weight. Size may be considered when deciding the route of delivery. ...Read more

Confusion: If you go based upon your LMP, you conceived between 4-16 to 4-21-13; however, that doesn't match up with your due date of 12-19-13. Instead, if you go by your LMP, your due date should have been 1/12/14. So I'm not sure you'll have a definite answer based on this information. ...Read more
