How many weeks were you when you delivered your baby and was he/she healthy enough to go home with you?

Also if you could tell me how much your baby weighed at birth so I can get an idea of when I deliver. Thanks

  • 36 weeks, and luckily she was healthy enough to go home, though quite small. I'm SO lucky that her lungs were okay.

  • 38 weeks, she was breech and backwards with no amniotic fluid and I was rushed in for an emergency C as soon as my water broke (6cm dialated). She was a healthy 6lbs 4oz and we went home 4 days later. She was jaundice and had to wear a brace for her hips to heal and keep her legs from dislocating! Now she's 2 and you'd never know

  • With my first i was 38 weeks adn i took her home 3 days later, i had to stay there an extra day because i had a fever, with my second i had him at 40 weeks and took him home the next day, the hospital i delivered at only allows vaginal birth to stay one day and c-section to stay 2 days

  • #1 was 41 weeks, 8lb13oz and had aspirated meconium so had to stay in incubator in NICU for her first 4 days - but I stayed in hospital with her.

    #2 was 39weeks, 7lb11oz and was out 12 hours past delivery (I however went into shock and ended up back in hospital with retained tissue)

    #3 39ISH weeks (none of us agreed on a date and I had no cycle - found out about pregnancy 15weeks along), she was 7lb11oz as well. and healthy as a horse.
