From what I was told when we were going through it with DD1, by several drs/pedis/nurses/neonatologists/etc, was that 35-36 weekers are notorious for having the feeding/temp issues/reflux, that it is very very common at that stage (though not all!) 37+ weekers are usually pretty well cooked and ready to go LOL. I will be praying you make it at least to 37 weeks!
