iam booked in to have my baby in 4 weeks which will make it 36 weeks on the dot due to major preavia.
Just wondering if anyone else has had a baby at this gestation and how they went i know they are all different but its nice to talk to someone who has had a baby around the same gestation.
My babys growth is good and his estimated weight is already 1900grams with 4 weeks to go.
Thanks look forward to hearing from you.
My DS was 36+2. Waters broke at 36 weeks then spent 2 days getting the steroids in for his lungs. He had trouble feeding and spent 9 days in Special Care Nursery but was healthy and was just too tired to feed. He was big for that gestation too, he was 3100g.
My friend had her bub at 36 weeks and he was fine and went straight into the room with her. He was much smaller than my little man too.
Interestingly, there were twins in SCN with DS who were born at 32 weeks, and they were ready to go home at the same gestation as my son, which was 37+4. They were just waiting on the suck feeding to get going too.
Much better to have bub out if there's a risk of complications. As the doctors said to me, there is so much more they can do to help them if they're out.
My DS is now a cheeky 21 month old and you wouldn't know he was born early.
