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.

When was my baby conceived?Born on 11-29-13,premature at 36 weeks w/due date of 12-19-13. Had sex on 4-21&4-25-13 Lmp was week of 4-7-13.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just been told that my mucus plugged has started to come out. No blood, but is it a sign of early labor? Im 36 weeks and 3 days? Should i be worried?
No worries!: The mucus plug is basically a collection of secretions the body makes to block the cervix and prevent causes of infection to reach inside the uterus and pregnancy. While 'losing your mucus plug' usually occur during the latter stages of pregnancy, it is not necessarily an indication for immediate delivery. Watch for other signs, such as contractions or leaking of fluid, to determine labor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
