If you had a baby born at 36 weeks

How much did they weigh? Any NICU time? We're they healthy? Why do you think you went into labor early?

 My son was born at 35 weeks. He was 5 pounds 7 ounces, 19 1/2 inches long. He was in the nicu for two days, one night. I had issues with my plateletts that I didn't know about until I was in labor, didn't even get it under control until my son was about 8 months old...I think it might have had something to do with early labor. He had respitory (sp?) problems...at least that's what my fiance says...The doctor's never told me exactly what was wrong (I was already freaking out enough haha) and he had jaundice REALLY bad for a while, but other then that he was perfectly healthy :) If I would've gone full term he would have been 10+ pounds according to my doctor. I had to deliver naturally (no drugs) because of my platelette issues, thank goodness he wasn't 10 pounds! lol

My son was born at 36.4. He was 8 lbs 4 oz. No nicu time. I had preterm labor from 33 weeks. I dont know for sure, but I think me going into labor early had to do with undiagnosed gestational diabetes (found out at 32 wks).

She was 6lb 5oz 20 1/2 inches long. Yes she was in nicu. Because they took me off my meds to stop my labor when I was 28 weeks I think could b they didn't find out I had debites till I was 35weeks.

My ds was born at 36 weeks. He weighed 5lbs 12oz. No NICU time... he just recieved a bit of oxygen right after birth. Other than that he was perfectly healthy. I have no idea why I went into labor early, but I started nesting really bad two days before, lol.
