Getting induced at 36 weeks and delivering earlier than expected

I've just given birth to my 3rd baby on May 26th. I had to be induced because my blood pressure was concerning the doctor, so after my check up Tuesday, I was admitted to the hospital. They started the induction process on Wednesday morning, and she was born Friday. She was 6lb 8oz 20in at birth and healthy! We are waiting to be discharged and seeing if she passes the bilirubin test for jaundice. 

My question is for anyone who has or has had a premie, what is the routine like? I have a 4 and 2 year old at home, both born around 38 weeks, so I've never dealt with this before. I was also told my baby is right on the cusp of being considered premie if that makes a difference. She was 36 weeks and 5 days when she was born.
