Re: Update from the MW...lots to think about

I just want to encourage you! As long as you and the baby are OK, everyday your baby is able to continue to grow and develop in your womb the better. At this point in your pregnancy, the baby is learning to breathe and its lungs are finalizing their development. At this gestational age, there is a good chance they may have to take the baby after birth to a special care nursery or NICU for breathing difficulties.

I know how stressful and painful it can be at the end of pregnancy. My DS was born at 42.5 weeks. :O Pitocin inductions are no fun. I will be hoping and praying that your body will be healed and will go into labor naturally.
