35 weeks? Ruby Runion-Brown Due July 25 (girl); Greenville, South Carolina 1067 posts

back: story: my cousin lost her twin girls at 23wks this time last year. she's now 35wks with a boy. she went into the hospital 2 days before thanksgiving was a 4. the night before thanksgiving they took her off the meds to stop contractions & said they would just let him come. now she's a 6-7 100% with bludging water bag.



how many people have had their baby at 35wks? did they go to nicu? how long did they have to stay? this is new for me they stopped mine at 34wks & didn't have any more contractions until the day before DD.



TIA

My son stayed in NICU only for 10 days. I had a Csection at 35 weeks, but he stopped growing at around 30. He only weighed 3.14 lbs, but he was otherwise completely healthy!

10 days is better than i was expecting

The general rule of thumb is to *expect* them to stay in the NICU until their due date, but every baby is different.

I also had my son at 26 weeks & my daughter at 37 also both completely healthy & never with to the nicu. If she was at risk for preterm labor cue to the loss of twins im sure her doctor gave her shots to develop her sons lungs. that is usually something they worry about.

I had my last daughter at 35 weeks and she didn't need any NICU time at all...they just kept an eye on her in the nursery for 24 hours.
