Re: 35-36 weeks
I had cholestasis and DS was delivered at 35weeks. He was 7lb 3 oz and the doctor was shocked! He spent two days on the vent and two weeks in the nicu. I am not going to lie and say it was easy. My other son was full term and very healthy so they were completely different experiences. I didn't hold him until he was one week old and I didn't nurse him until he was 10 days old. They told me he may not nurse as easily as a full term baby, but he nursed like a champ and that is why he came home at two weeks instead of three. He has had more health issues than my oldest, but overall he is doing well.
ETA; Yay for 37 weeks!
