have to be hospitalized?

 

So I went to the hospital this afternoon to see the baby and to see my cousin. i asked one of the nurses why a baby born at 31 weeks wouldn't be in the NICU and she looked at me like I was crazy so i commented that Serina (the baby's mom) said she was only 31 weeks. The nurse said that the baby was no less than 38/39 weeks :)

yes for a while. close to as long as when the due date was. 31 weeks is still really early

Yes, my daughter was born at 31.5 weeks, she was in the NICU for seven days. 

ETA: My husband corrected me, she was in the NICU for nine days. I was in ICU as well, so I didn't realize.

Maybe. It would mainly depend of the development of the baby's lungs (and some other "tests" the baby would have to "pass", keeping body temp up, etc).
