I had my first son at 5 weeks early well my second was my daughter and she was 2 months premature and only weighed 3lbs 8 oz i didnt really know what to expect they whisked me into surgery so fast to get her out as she was breach and then they said to me an hour later that i could see her soon but to expect thats she was intubated on and at first it didnt sound so bad then i saw her and it was so sad watching her with tubes coming out of her breathing for her when they were like 5 times the size of her then she got flown away from me 2 hours from where i was she stayed in hospital for 3 weeks thankfully not as long as expected but still long enough away from me and thank fully now she is a healthy little girl strong big and beautiful and i know that they are hard when it happens like that but i made it through it with a 9 month old on my hip so i know if i can do it you can to and its ok i also now have another child who was 5 weeks premature as well so i know what its like to have premature babies as mine are all preemie but it was my daughter that hit the hardest. ill try to post pics later

I have a boy born 2 and a half months early......... 3 lbs 12 oz. He is sitting next to me now happily watching his Baby Einstein video- healthy as can be - approx 17lbs now at almost 9 months old actual age. I am posting this cause your baby's early delivery and weight are so similar to mine- I want to give you lots of hope. God bless you. This is only a season and soon your little girl will be strong as an ox.

both of mine were prems and believe me, i was terrified both times. My oldest daughter was almost 3 when i had her sister. My younest was so so tiny. 3lb 6. she was only 10 inches long. you could barely see her for all the wires and tubes. She came out of the hospital on her daddys b day 3 months later. she is a gorgeous mom to be now. Kids are fantastic no matter how small they are. as long as you keep the faith you can get through anything.
