My water broke at 26 weeks and I am now 31 weeks 3 days and have been in the hospital ever since. They will not let me leave until after I deliver. I'm getting induced by 34 weeks. This is my first baby and have no idea what to expect, especially with a preemie. I was wondering about other babies born between 32 and 34 weeks. Were they okay? What kind of machines did they need to be hooked up to? How long was their NICU stay? If you had a vaginal birth what was it like with a preemie? How soon after did you get to hold your baby? Will they let my husband cut the cord even though our son will be early? Thanks in advance!
