Doctor is inducing me on Monday night. My blood pressure has been erratic but mostly high. He feels since we got to 34 weeks that it is better to deliver now than wait until something major is going wrong. Last ultrasound that they did measurements she was measuring 4 lbs and a little. That was about a week and a half ago now. Have had my cortizone shots. For the last few biweekly ultrasounds, I have seen rhythmic breathing, sucking and swallowing. Doctor says she will most likely be going to the NICU, he says for a few days to possibly 2 weeks. I have always been told preemies are usually in NICU until they reach their due date or close to it. Can anyone tell me what they faced with their little ones born around this same time?
