Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

Wow so many postive stories. I was thinking it would be far and few between. I was thinking it was a month early and babies would be sickly or full of meds. How awsome, So no worries once your this far along except on certain things that could happen in everyones deliverys. TY

Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

I've delivered 2 in the 36th week. Both came on their own. (And yes, both due dates were correct)

DS#1: 36w1d: 8lbs 14 ounces. Lungs were perfect and came home ontime
DD#3: 36w6d: 7lbs 14 ounces. Also perfect

They estimated that if DS didn't come early, he would have been well over 12lbs since he was gaining a full pound per day.

I though DS#2 would also come early however I had to be induced at 38 weeks. (9lbs 4 ounces and also gaining 1lbs per week).

I love the nurses faces when they called them premis. My son was the biggest baby in the nursery.

Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

I had my ds at 36 weeks. The induced early b/c of pre-e and he had IUGR and he only weighed 3#14oz. He stayed in the NICU for 10 days. He had to learn how to suck, sallow, and breath at the same time. Also, he couldn't keep up his body temp. The dr says I was 36 weeks, but I know when I got pregnant so on my caluclations he was more like 34 weeks. Now he's 5 and you would never know he was a preemie.

Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

Yep, my last was born at actually 36 weeks. We had planned a homebirth with her but went to the hospital since she was a 36 weeker. She was 100% fine and weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces. I'm pregnant w/my fourth now and my homebirth midwife this time around says I will be fine to deliver at home at 36 weeks as 36 weekers are almost always fine just a bit smaller. I had a feeling she would come early and I started lossing my mucus plus a few days before I had her. Best wishes!

Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

ds 2 i delivered at 36wk 4days -
6lb 2 oz and 19" long - went home the same day - did get a bit jaundiced but nothing major -

i had already lost my plug and had had some regular contractions in the week before I delivered, also on my last appointment i had been 1-2 cm dilated - however i knew for sure it was labor coming b/c my water broke. However after that my contractions didnt progress and ended up needing a little jump start at the Birth Center

Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

ME! My firsborn was born at 36 weeks. He was totally healthy, 6lbs. 14oz.
My water broke in the middle of the night. I didn't even start contracting until the morning. My labor went horribly wrong due to total hospital intervention, and my lack of educating myself enough, but I had a healthy boy via c-section. All was well. No steroids (?) but since I hadn't gotten my strep B test yet, they gave me IV antibiotics as a precaution.
My second wasn't born until 39 1/2 weeks, and I was miserable!!!

Good luck!

Re: How many moms delivered at 36w,

#3 was delivered at 36w5d. He turned breech a few days before and that started labor (I didn't know he was breech). I spent two days laboring at home trying not to be in labor.

I did start to think that maybe there was a reason he wanted to come early. I was planning a birth center birth and I started thinking maybe he wanted to be born at the hospital.

The day he was born the ONE dr who will do a vag breech delivery was on call! It was totally meant to be. I still got my drug-free vag birth. Salem was delivered rump first (ouch). He was 6lb13oz and lungs were fine.

We did have to stay for 48 hours because I was Group B unknown.
