Re: 35 weekers anyone??

Oh, and my dr told me they have stopped doing steroid shots after 34 weeks because research has been showing that it makes their brains soft. (that may be my fuzzy memory, but that's what I remember her saying).

Re: 35 weekers anyone??

My 2nd son was born at 36 weeks. He was 6.13 and had no issues. My 3rd son was born at 35 weeks. At 34 weeks I was in L&D overnight while they worked on stopping my labor. The day I hit 35 weeks my water broke. Baby boy was born weighing 6.2. They had a NICU doctor there thinking they would have to take him. But that dr just loooked at him and said he was fine. What a blessing! We spent 34 hours in the hospital and were sent home. He never had to go to the NICU. He never left my side once I got him. He did have jaundice for a while but never had to admitted for it.

I had 35 week 2day twins two days ago. Baby Macy was 5lb even and will be there about a week more if things keep progressing. Baby Trevor was 4lb 9oz and he will be there longer. They had nobshots to mature lungs before birth. But are steadily making progress. Good luck mama!

My first baby was born at 35 weeks 3 days, no steroid shots, and was 7 lbs even. He roomed in with me, and we went home together 3 days later.

My second was born at 34 weeks 1 day, but I had steroid shots.. she was 5 lb 9 oz and was taken to NICU for observation but released on day 3 because she was perfectly fine (hospital protocol mandated that she go to NICU because she was under 35 weeks).

Re: 35 weekers anyone??

My girl came at 35 weeks on Valentine's Day! We were there for two weeks, but no steroids needed. She did have a cpap for the first half-day, and a cannula for the first week. She needed a gavage tube until 9 days. She was 5lb 4oz at 19 inches, so she wasn't terribly small for a 35 weeker. She's rebounded beautifully though. Four and a half months now and exactly 15lbs and 24 inches.

I've had 2 35 weekers. My son had the shots and was born weighing 6 lbs4 oz and didn't need any extra help. My daughter who is 7 weeks tomorrow also had the shots but stayed in the nicu for 6 days. She was 5 lbs 4 oz and needed oxygen and feeding help. So it really isn't varies baby to baby. Good luck

I had a 35 weeker and had a no shots but a month in the NICU. He just wasn't ready. I was told that white boys are the ones that end up in the NICU more often then any other. The nurses called it wimpy white boy syndrome.
