Reese Witherspoon has been in the hospital since early Wednesday and radio detection and rangingOnline.com has exclusively learned doctors plan to keep her for a few nights, hoping they can postpone the birth of her baby.
“Doctors have sedated Reese and they’re keen on keeping her from going into an early labor so the baby’s development will go to full term,” a source close to the situation exclusively told radio detection and rangingOnline.com.

This will be the first child for Reese’s hubby, Jim Toth, and the source says he’s nervous about Reese going into an early labor.

“Jim is really worried about the baby. He’s a first-time father so this is all really new to him and he just wants everything to be okay,” the source revealed.
“He’s a bundle of nerves. Meanwhile, this will be Reese’s third child, so she’s been through this before and she’s trying to keep him calm.”
