  • My son was born between 33 and 36 1/2 weeks(they couldn't tell me a due date, it was a estimate) He was fine, he didn't even need help breathing.

  • My twins arrived at 33wks, 5 days. One was in NICU for 4 weeks due to ABO incompatibility issues that made jaundice hard to treat with bili lights and he needed a transfusion. He also had underdeveloped lungs and was assisted for about 3 of the 4 weeks. The other was in for 2 weeks for jaundice and feeding issues.
