 I was induced at 37 weeks with my DD. She weighed 4 lbs 13 oz. She didnt need any help breathing. Now shes 15 months old and 23 pounds.  She made up for her low birth weight.

to me having a baby a even a day early is no good. with my first daughter was was born at 41 weeks 1 day! 8 days over due. and she could not maintain her body temp. my second daughter was also born 8 days over due and she could not breathe. so "close enough" is not good enough...they cant gaurentee that an overdue baby is done. they can gaurentee that a "close enough" baby is done

I had ds at 36 weeks. He didn't require breathing help or anything. He also weighed 7lbs and 6oz. We had a problem with acid reflux and colic. But he's 2 now and was diagnosed as heat intolerant and has asthma. Dunno if it's related to him being early or not.

 I had twins at 34 weeks and they had no problems breathing. They did however have problems eating and pooping.

I had DD at 37+4. She weighed 6 11 and had no problems aside from jaundice, which cleared up by the time she was a week old.

I did at 34 weeks, but she was 5ld 5 oz. She was on oxygen for 3 days, and developed jaundice- but other than that, she did really well. She's a healthy 7 yr old now.
