Dear Ncece
I am sorry to say, but 12 weeks is not a viable baby, however, it is a very real pregnancy. Depending on the reason for going into labour early it can be controlled for a while, but a baby of 3 months will not live, since the vital development has not yet taken place. Please discuss with your doctor, so he can give you the correct advice on what is happening and why.
Regards
Welma

I read that the earliest a baby ever survived was at 24 weeks born!

If the baby was to be born now no it would not be viable. There are many many different reasons for having a premature baby and yes it is very dangerous for the baby. I dont know of a single doctor what will allow you to give birth to a premature baby at the mother's request it is so dangerous. Yes there stats of premature survival has gone up but even at 34 weeks something could go wrong and the baby could die.
