Developmental milestones for Infants
Babies grow at an amazingly fast rate during their first year of life. In addition to babies' physical and weight, babies also go through major achievement stages, referred to as developmental milestones. Developmental milestones are easily identifiable skills that the baby can perform, such as rolling over, sitting up, and walking. These milestones are usually classified into three categories: motor development, language development, and social/emotional development.
Babies tend to follow the same progression through these milestones. However, no two babies go through these milestones at exactly the same time. Babies also spend different amounts of time at each stage before moving on to the next stage. Contact your health care professional if you have any concerns about your baby's development.

I too had a complicated pregnancy (because of ruptured membranes). I was on bed rest and actually induced at 34 weeks. My situation was totally different from yours because ruptured membranes increases the risk for infection but by 34 weeks the risk of prematurity is outweighed by the risk of infection.
Now, since you have preterm labor and not preterm premature rupture, you are not at risk for infection.
My baby was born at 34 weeks 4 days and is now 4 months old. He is very healthy, spunky, and charming and is making his developmental milestones on time. Now having said that, he did spend 5 days in the NICU (4 with external respiratory support - called CPAP) and a total of three weeks in the hospital
