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
I had 3 babies @ 35 weeks only in nicu first 12 hours-per state law.
1. 5.9 lbs2. 6.7 lbs3. 5.8 lbs
*not triplets --3 different births
I'm not much help, mine were born at 31 weeks and 37 weeks.
