    Be safe its your babys health! 34 weeks isnt to bad for a baby to be born but take it easy you really dont want that little bundle of joy coming until at least 37! I was put on bed rest on week 10 and flown to Vancouver womans at week 23 although my baby hung in till week 37 and 4 days i saw all the little ones fighting for everything they could, give your baby as much time as possible to grow and get strong a few weeks of bed rest and taking it easy is easier then the rest of your life trying to live with a child who has special needs!
