Through out the majority of my pregnancy I experienced preterm labor contractions (it was horrible!!). I had to take meds to control them and sometimes that wouldn't even help. I knew deep down that I was going to give birth earlier than my original due date (Dec.2), even though my OB assured me that everything was fine and he expected me to go full-term. I went into labor right at 36 weeks. So, my son was only 4 weeks early, but he was still such a lil guy! 4lbs!! I was so scared that something was going to be wrong with him, but thank God nothing was. I think to myself that I did get lucky, I was blessed to have a healthy newborn, even at an early date.
