Sounds like you both are doing fine. I understand wanting that time at the end. My son came at 34 weeks (a later preemie) and I still look at mom's with big bellies a bit enviously While your daughter won't have preemie issues b/c she isn't a preemie, normal is a wide range and both she and you might benefit from some extra snuggle and quiet time in a wrap or sling (who wouldn't. When my son got home from 3 weeks in the NICU I wrapped him up and didn't leave the house for around a month to recreate that womb like environment. He was my first though, so I had that luxury. Glad you reached out to lactation when you needed it. Congrats and breath! You are doing fine. Also, even is a baby is a preemie, they won't necessarily have issues, even early on. Also, in my experience 34/35 weeks is the border for most late preemie issues and a baby can go home just fine at that stage if the sucking reflex is in and the heart beat is strong and steady.
I am confused. Is this tiny baby a preemie or not? She was technically term, but it was so close. Her tests have been good, but I wonder if I can expect any issues down the road based on her tiny size.
I feel kind of guilty posting here because I know most of you had much more trouble than I did. However, I know I can rely on you for kindness, as well as some experience, strength, and hope.
