My guys were born at 37w, 5 days, and had ZERO time in NICU.

 

Thomas was jaundiced, but I attribute that to him being bruised during the breech extraction. No bili lights.

My twins aren't born yet, but I just had a fantastic conversation with a twin OB who has been practicing for years and years (probably 30 or so) and has done research on twin births and all that.  He told me that 1 in 10 babies born at 34 weeks will go home with their mothers.  At 36 weeks, 9 in 10 will go home then.  I just thought that might be good info for any other pregnant mamas who are reading this thread closely trying to figure what the earliest "safe" date is.

This has been encouraging to read.  It definitely strengthens my resolve to do what I can to keep them in until 38 weeks!
