  • I had my son at 28 weeks, he was in the NICU for 3 months. Usually they are in there until the due date. (not always, but usually)

  • it's hard to say how long the LO will be in the hospital there are a lot of factors that decide that.. I havent had a baby early I'm expecting my first now and i asked the same question lol

  • I had my daughter at 34 weeks and she was in the hospital for about 10 days. By three months, no one could tell she was a preemie.

  • I was 36 weeks when I delivered our son and we went home the next day. He was still 8 lbs and 21 inches, though, so he was barely considered early.

    33 weeks seems like you'll have pretty good odds! I hope your baby hangs out a little longer, though and everything goes well!
