  • Yep...had her at 32 weeks. She needed a little oxygen for about a week. But was fine other than that. She breathed on her own and took a bottle on her own.

  • My friend had a baby at 31 weeks no steroids, went home about 3 weeks later, her daughter is doing PERFECTLY! was always alert, needed some help breathing and eating, but otherwise fine. Good luck, and God bless. You and yours will be in my prayers!

  • Had my DD at about 35 weeks. . . got the steroids and all . . . she was low birthweight and not gaining which is why I was induced (2lbs 13oz) she need help with the eating (feeding tube very common) but lungs were fine. . . Your little one might need oxygen or could have jaundice (both very common) but should be fine. . . Good luck. . . Crossing fingers. . .

  • Had mine at 31 weeks after steroids. I think it made the difference. He did not need help with breathing born only a week after the shots.
