Quoting Rosa Newhouse:" my son was born at 32 weeks and was in the nicu for a month and trust me no real mother wants that no ... [snip!] ... dont want to carry him or her another 8 weeks cause thats just wrong ... You are wrong asking us mothers not to say nothing bad"
Agreed. If you are having problems coping, then seek perhaps mental health counseling or a coach of sorts.
I am at 36 weeks, though I would love for my baby to come earlier than the due date, I would much rather be able to hold my baby all the time and take him home with me than to be stuck at the hospital with limited visiting hours. It would be too heartbreaking to have the baby that grew inside you and your body to go through weird changes and tough moments, that first move/kick/punch/hickup, that first look at what your baby looks like, it all leads up to the moment where you can finally hold him/her, see them, love them.
The safest place your baby can be is inside you. Yes, the mortality rate has dropped significantly, but he/she will still get sick and have his/her first few weeks out of the womb not-so-pleasurable experiences.
