    Not 34, but I had mine at 36 weeks and she never left my side. They kept us in for 5 days and were happy with how we were going so let us leave. I hope all goes well, but at 34 weeks I would not be too concerned about major health problems.

    Hi Im new here and just stumbled across your post,

    My Son was born at 33weeks 6 days and he is now a big 5 year old. Unfortunately because I went into preterm labour and my labour was only 30 minutes (emergency trip to hospital in ambulance) the Dr's couldnt give me steriods to help his lungs develop so he had to spend 3 weeks in the SCBU section at the hospital.

    Since your OB will be monitoring you and baby, if he decides to induce you he will be able to give you steriods to help babies lungs develop before your induced.

    Please ask if you have any questions

    Good luck

    Hi I had one of my sons at 36 weeks, he was in hospital for a month with hypothermia and required NGT for 3 weeks. All babies are different and some deal better with being born early than others. I expect your baby might have a few breathing problems ? Will probably require NGT and need a isolet?? Sorry I'm not much help. I'm sorry your going through this. I hope everything goes well and you can keep bubs in as long as you can
