My dd was born at 34w5d with suspected iugr. She was born healthy and big! 6 pounds 1 ounce. She was readmitted to the led unit on day 3 for jaundice treatment (3 days), but she had no breathing, eating or temp issues. Turns out she had breast feeding jaundice/long term jaundice and was fine after 6 weeks. But no nicu time.
Many 35 weekers do just fine, but of course some don't and need some extra help.
We had an amnio done for lung maturity the day before she was born and her lungs were ready.
Is there a reason they haven't given you steroids?
