did anyone bring a 34 weeker right home?

Are you part of the NICU club? Do you have a child who is still struggling with the effects of being born too soon from preeclampsia? Share your concerns and stories here among parents who have been there.

YAY!!
Thanks for the high hopes!!
I have officailly made it to 35 weeks today!!

My Dr. is confident that, (barring any unforseen stuff of course...)
The baby will be able to come home w/ us:), and she guesses the baby to be about 5-6 pounds:)
Although I am only measuring 34 cm, that it is negligable, and well within the 35 week size req.

I am actually getting excited, and less afraid.
There is an issue of "hurry up and wait" though.
I get the results of my 24 hr., at noon tommorrow.

My b/p's were higher than normal but acceptable today, so after the nst, I got to go home.
I forgot to ask what my protein was on the stick test we did though...darned pregnant brain!

I had to drop off my jug after that.
I'll let you all know how the 24 hr went,asap.
Thanks and hugs!!!!

My son was 34 weeks and was a a little over 5 pounds and stayed 2 weeks in the NICU. My doctor told me when we were getting ready for induction that he has delivered a 34 weekers that were ready to go home. I do see you made it to 35 weeks my grilfriend had twins at 35-36 weeks and they came home with her. Every baby is so different I do wish you the best of luck

We were just shy of 35 weeks when DD was born. She had to stay for 15 days after birth. She was 4 pounds even when she was born. My girlfriend's DD was born at 35 weeks too, but was 6lbs 8oz and was able to go home with no problems at all.

Hope all goes well for you and your little one!
