This post is pretty old, but I'm going to comment anyway.
My daughter was born at 35 weeks on the dot at a HUGE 7lbs 11oz, 20 inches long and needed to be sent to a larger hospital because she could not breath on her own. She spent a total of 11 days in the NICU, 4 of them on a vent. She's been fine ever since though. She'll be three at the end of this month :)

Quoting angelcurls:" Anyone have their babies at 33+ weeks and could tell me how they did? Wt, length, needed oxygen or not, stayed in hospital?????, etc....."

Miana was born at 33 weeks 6 days. She weighed 4 lbs 15.6 oz. She needed oxygen for a couple days. Stayed in the NICU for 12 days even though they said she would have to stay in for at least 3 weeks. She wasn't allowed to breastfeed til she was 4 days old.
