I was induced just a day shy of 35 weeks. No steroids for us. DD was 4lbs 17 1/2inches and did fairly well. She stayed for 15 days, and had some minor oxygen problems in the beginning and was on extra O2 for the first week or so. She had an NG tube for feedings and was eating 15-20cc's at first, but up to 30cc's by the time we left (that's for each feeding, every 3-4 hours). She had to stay in the isolette for 13 of the days to help regulate her temp. She did very well, and is now 16 months and growing great. It was scary as I found out I was to deliver Fri night with HELLP syndrome and I had her on Sat, so I didn't have time to prepare. She wore preemie outfits for the first month or two after coming home. Gotta love those tiny preemie diapers too. They look so small now.
Best of luck to you!!
