Possible premature birth

Hi, I'm 34 weeks pregant. If I give birth next week, will my baby need an incubator? His estimated weight if he goes to term, is 3.2kg. Thanks.

Why do you want to have your baby at 35 weeks? Your pregnancy seems to be normal, but if you give birth early, there are several courses of action - the use of incubators depends on how early the baby is born and his weight - sometimes premature babies don't even need incubators. But there's no point in going through this if you don't have to, stop worrying, it may never happen!
