How long was your babies NICU stay?

Fan Question

Has anybody had their babies between 35 and 36 weeks? And if so how were the babies? Did they go home with you, have a NICU stay, what’d they weigh, etc??


I had my rainbow baby girl at 36 weeks pregnant and she didn’t need to go to the NICU at all. She weighed 6 lbs 1/4 oz

I had my son 35+6 he was 6lb 3oz didn’t need any NICU time was perfectly healthy :blush: hes 2y6m now

Had mine at 35 weeks perfectly healthy and he didn’t need to stay at the NICU.

34 weeks he was 6.8 lbs and 21 inches long, went home right away

35 weeks 2 days, 3lbs 12.3oz. :heart: only 11 days in the NICU!

I had my son and 35 weeks due to preeclampsia. He was 5 lbs 15 oz and he was in the NICU for 10 days.

34 weeks 12 days in NICU 8 pounds 9 ounces 19.5 inches long

35wk 3lb 8oz nicu for 13days but I also had preeclampsia and she didn’t grow for a few weeks, my placenta was small. She did very well considering, she just needed to work on holding her temp up and eating a little.

My son was excalty 36 weeks. He was 5 pounds 4oz no nicu time he was a csection so we were in the hospital for 5 days

I had a 34weeker that was 3lbs 13oz and she was tiny but healthy and just got evaluated by the nicu team at birth then she stayed in my room. we stayed in the hospital for a week

35 weeks and 5 days. No NICU. He was 5lbs exactly, 16 inches long and is now a perfectly happy almost 3 year old

I had my first born at 35 weeks. She was 5lbs and went right home with me. No nicu

I had my first son at 33 weeks and we went home after 3 days. He was 5lbs but healthy!

Had my son at 35 weeks exactly. And he spent 5 days at a NICU for oxygen levels. 5 lbs 11 oz. But progressed much quicker than the Dr’s thought he would, originally it was planned for atleast 2 plus weeks in nicu. Btw my NICU was awesome! It was about 30 mins from where we lived , they allowed us to stay there and eat at no charge to us or insurance. Taught me how to pump correctly and stored all my milk. And taught us so much about caring for our babe that I never would have been prepared for had we went home right away.

34 weeks. 6lbs 8oz. NICU for 17 days to help him learn how to eat!

All 4 of mine were born healthy between 35 and 37 weeks. Only one went to NICU for 3 days. Do to not being able to maintain a healthy temperature.All weighed 6-7 pounds at birth.

My son was born at 36 weeks and weighed 6 lb in 1 oz he still was in the NICU for 1 week

My baby was born at 35 weeks and one day weighing 4 lbs 13 oz and completely healthy

I had mine at 36 weeks. He was perfectly healthy spent 24 hours under the light due to jaundice. We were out of the hospital within 24 hours.
