My boy was born at just before 34 weeks, he was 4lbs 13oz. He had a hard time breathing fresh out, so he was on a ventilator for 16 hours, and spent a total of 19 days in the NICU.
Thank all of you for your replies. I'm praying he stays in for at least 4 more weeks. I'm trying to take it easy so I don't have him early. Thank you again!
I went into preterm labor at 32 weeks...was dialated to 3 and 50% effaced. I had her at 35 weeks 1 day because I went into labor again and my water started leaking. She weighed 6 lbs 13 ounces and had to stay in the Special Care Nursery for7 days.
My daughter was born at 35weeks 1 day. She weighed 4lbs 9.8oz. She was initially kept with me, but when they came back to do lab work on her, they noticed her bili-rubin level was high, so she spent 10 days in the NICU. It reallys depends on each person individually.

I'm due the same day as you. My baby boy dropped around 30-31 weeks. My doctor said he could check me at my last appointment but I decided to wait..now I wish I would have let him! lol. But he is checking me at my next appointment on the 22nd. I will let you know what he tells me so we can compare on how progressed we are!
i had my babygirl at 35 weeks and had no problems she had to stay in the hospital for a week but she was healthy and fine...sometimes when the baby is ready they just wanna come out lol so if ur doctor hasnt said anything that would worry you i wouldnt stress over it =]
I had my baby at 34 weeks, she only had to stay a week in the hospital, and she was completely healthy. but I also had steroid shot given at 24 weeks the 1st time I went into labor with her.
