    Born at 37 weeks, no NICU.  Came home from the hospital at 3 days old (they were born at 10pm on a Monday and came home at noon on Wednesday, and might have come home on Tuesday except for mild jaundice that the doctors wanted to be sure did not get worse).

    My boys were born at 31+6 weeks and stayed 19 days in the NICU as growers/feeders.  I did receive steroid shots exactly one week before their birth (steroid shots help the babies' lungs develop in the event of an impending premature birth) and they did not need a ventilator.

    My girls were born at 31 weeks. I had the steroid shot at 28 weeks because I started contracting. They were in NICU for 5 weeks. No complications at all.

    34+1 and they both spent 13 days in the NICU. Baby B was on CPAP for about 18 hrs and also under the lights for jaundice for a bit. Baby A needed some help controlling her temp for the first few days. Then it was just feeding and growing. Breastfeeding took a long time to figure out - our NICU was breastmilk friendly but not terribly breastfeeding friendly. We figured it out eventually and went on to breastfeed for almost 2 years.

    Our boys came at 32 weeks and 5 days, totally unexpectedly - No HBP, Preeclampsyia... nada.  Although they were my first pregnancy, and I'd been very healthy, we had no idea my water would break when it did.  I was given steroid shots during my labor.  They spent 10 days in NICU and were able to be discharged on the same day, which I was so incredibly thankful for. Having to bring them home separate would have to be the pits :/  One of the boys spent 3 days on C-PAP and the other 4.  They got bumped up to a less critical wing on day 6 when they went off of that, and no longer needed the bili lights for their jaundice.
