Babies born at 35-36 weeks? LILFROG 2 kids; California 71 posts

Just wondering how many babies have to spend time in the NICU born at 35-36 weeks. My last daughter was born at exactly 36 weeks (barely a premie) and went home when I did. She did get a little jaundice but that was her only problem. This pregnancy is expected to end around the same time and was wondering how many healthy babies were delivered...
Thanks!

I gave birth at 36 weeks and Lilly is still in the hospital only because she acts like a 32 week old and she had breathing problems.
Dr said she could probably go home next week sometime.

Both of my girls were born at 36 weeks. My oldest spent 9 hours in NICU because she was breathing "funny" and was then fine. My youngest was born perfect healthy.

Averie was born at 35 weeks. Weighed 3 lbs and 12 ozs and 16 inches long. I had an emergency sec. due to Placenta/cord problems. She was in NICU for 4 and a half weeks,she was in an incubator for 3 and a half weeks and then to a crib. She weighed 4 lbs and 6 ozs when we brought her home.
She is now 11 months old, weighs close to 20 lbs, and I measured her this morning at 30 inches!

My little lady was born at 36 weeks and one day. I went through chemo during my entire pregnancy because of cancer...had no choice. Chemo brought on preterm contractions. They stopped those but at 36 weeks my water broke. She was born 100% heatlthy at 6 lbs 2.8 oz and 18 inches long. She never had any trouble. She needed no NICU. She has some reflux but other than that she is fine. She is now over 11 lbs and around 23 inches long! She is about 2 1/2 months old now :)

I had my daughter at 36 weeks and 2 days (December 22) her weight was 4lbs 15oz and her only problem was jandice and she got to stay in the room with me the hole time with no problems well of course they had to come check her temp and blood sugar every 3 hours but it was always good and she had to have the blood work for the jandice 2 times but we were only in the hospital for 2 days.

SHe is now 7 weeks old and doing great she is getting sooo big from her looks we havent had a doctors appt since Jan.7th and her weight was 5lbs 9oz She goes in for her 2 month old needle at the end of the month and i will get her weight then as well but she had out grown most of her preemie clothes last week.

I had my son at 34weeks and 6 days, he was 5lbs 10 ounces. He spent 4 days in the nursery (they didnt have an NICU) and came home. He was never on any breathing machines or any special care. He was a little jaundice but it went away after a week.. Hes now over 7lbs and healthy as ever
