    Hi Hun

    Dont worry she may not even need scbu if shes feeding and can maintain her own temp, your little girl will be one of the big ones in there compared to the teeny prems. Mine were born at 28wks and other 2 32wks xx

    Hey Hun, your little one should be just fine. Babies born at 36 week or more are not even classed as a premmie. She should be breathing on her own and only thing needed will be to establish feeding which should be no probs at all. I can understand that your scared but honest, I have seen babies at you little ones gestation and they are only in the unit for a week or two if that.

    Good luck xx

    Hiya Lovey,
    I had my twins on the 31st, they were 35+1. Thankfully they didn't need any SCBU, they were just put in the incubators for a couple of days as they weren't maintaining there temps, apart from that they are fine. We are now at home.
    If you need anyone to talk to, just send me a PM.
    Keep us updated.
    xx

    Don't worry.Everything will be fine. I had Laila at 36+3 and she weighed 5lb 1oz and then lost weight but luckily she didn't need scbu but your lo is virtually full term so she'll be fine. I remember my waters broke and then 24hrs later she arrived...I'd never worried so much in my life but it's natural to.Take care and enjoy your lo.

    Hey sweetie your little one has great chances of coming out just fine!:) Don't be startled if she may need oxygen at first but usually after a few hours they do just fine. Have you had steroids given for babies lungs?

    I had a baby at 30wks and 34wks...and my one at 34 weeks was out of the NICU after one week.

    Good luck tomorrow sweetie and I'm sure your little one will surprise you!:)
