My triplet boys were born at 33 wks 6 days

Blaine 4lb 5oz

Beau 4lb 6oz

Brandon 5lb 7oz

They're 20 now and normal size and weight

Blaine 5'10" about 150lbs

Brandon 5'11" about 140lbs

Beau 5'8" about 140 as well....he's a bit shorter due than his brothers, but I believe this is from him taking Ritalin until he was 13.

I just don't understand how some people don't know how it feels to have a preemie is really hard to see your child in the nicu fighting for their lifes and all we can do is love them, hold them etc. and to think what the future for them would be.my child is 14 months and not walking still and I do worry but doctor said that there is still time. but now it doesn't bother me anymore she is my child and when the time comes i will be happy.

My Sweet Baby Girl was 12 weeks early weighing 2 lbs 1oz. When she was 3 weeks old she developed an infection in her bowels which perforated, blowing up her stomach. Her lowest weigh was 1 lbs 11 oz.......after a roller coaster of surgeries I took her home with a condition call Short Bowel Syndrome ,she was 8 months old and she weighed 8lbs
Today my Sweet Baby Girl is a very intelligent 6 yrs old oh forgot to mention Beautiful, weighing. 29 lbs but she is also very healthy who loves school and hanging out with all her friends

My daughter was premature and had early onset IUGR, but born at 34 weeks at 3lbs 8 oz and 16 inches long. She spent 28 days in the nicu and came home weighing 4lbs 0.7 oz. She's 17 months old now and almost 19 lbs. Its hilarious to watch her walk around because she is so short! She fits in 9-12 month clothes. She started walking at 13 mo. They always say, "they'll catch up by age two" but judging by how many kids become FTT, I wouldn't bet on it.

My twins, Matthew and Michael, were born at 25 weeks, each weighing approximately 1 lb 15 oz. Michael died 18 hours after birth. Matthew is now 13 years old. He is 5' 9" and weighs approximately 120 lbs. We consider him a miracle, and are very thankful he is doing so well.

My son was born at 31 weeks and weighed 3lbs 3oz. He is now 11 yrs old, and is 4 ft 11 in and weighs 95 lbs! No one believes he was once a preemie! Lol He has grown so much! He does suffer severe learning disabilities, and is a special needs child. He does well in school with the help of his wonderful special education teachers. We are so very proud of our son!

Wow sounds like he is doing great!!

My daughter was born 6 weeks early weighing 3lbs 12oz and was 16 in long. She is now almost 3 and still a peanut weighing 22.6ibs. I forget what her height was. She is still in 18 month clothing. But she eats like a horse and has the energy of one too!!

My son was born about 4 weeks early and he weighed 4lbs 15oz but had many problems gaining weight and eventually ended up with a feeding tube for a month. Proud to say, now at 11 months he is drinking his bottle on his own and eating baby food. He currently weighs 16lbs.

my son was born 12 wks premature @ 1 lb 15 oz. 14in long. He is now 3 yrs old and so full of energy. I can hardly keep up with him. He has passed all his developmental checkups to date with flying colors. His last one was off the charts well above his age. He did so well. I am so proud of him and so very blessed. God is so good!

My son was born at 30wks, 3lbs 11oz, 17 inches long. He is now 2 1/2 weighing in at 27.6 pounds. He is an extremely active little guy, never stops moving! His doctor is not concerned with his weight because he is following his growth charts and is always progressing in the right direction!

My grandson, Grayson, was born at 27 wks, 1 1/2 pounds, and 13 inches. Today, he's a healthy 3 1/2 year old who is about 37" and about 30 pounds. He's a little guy, but that's family genes. After 79 days in NICU, he came home on oxygen with an oximeter which he used for 6 months. He is a high performing Autistic who has had early intervention since 2 when he could only say two words. Grayson was very late in hitting milestones, so we sought services in our community. He attends special education preschool everyday and by kindergarten should be socially integrated. He is beyond his years in academics, but was lacking in gross motor/fine motor skills and social interaction. Occupational Therapy and Speech services have helped tremendously.

My daughter was born 9 weeks premmie, weighed 3 pounds & 11 ounces, she had many challenges. She was not able to walk un-assisted, she needed support to sit up, drooled constantly, developmentally delayed, frequent body tremors, some seizure like episodes, kind of in a daze all the time, clenched left hand, choking on her food, speach problems, left side weakness etc. She was elevated on her toes when holding her to walk, she was splinted for a leg brace & they wanted to give her botox, but after researching botox and discovering how it’s made and there were no long term studies I decided against it. Her life was restricted & so was mine ...and it looked this way for the rest of her life ... & mine. I felt hopeless.

We were attending all sorts of treatments and therapies which cost a lot. A friend told me about some special wellness supplements from a particular company, she started taking them in her yogurt, after one week she was up walking un-assisted, it made an immense difference to her brain function, memory, balance, mood & cognition in a short space of time. She began to thrive. I was elated!

I am so grateful to the person that told me about this incredible technology. She now has a life now ….. and so do I. It’s now over 14 yrs later and she continues to take these special nutrients, she has attended normal public schools, she is almost 16, in a few weeks she begins driving lessons and has just started an after school casual job in a fast paced food takeaway. Now she is taller than me.

My daughter was born 9 weeks premature weighing 3 lbs & 11 oz with many challenges.
At age 2 she could not walk un-assisted, she needed support to sit up, she constantly druelled, she choked often on her food, her speach was not easy to understand, she was developmentally delayed and had muscle spasms. She had physiotherapy, speach therapy & occupational therapy as well as many specialists appoinments.
She began taking a special nutritional supplement at age 2, it really helped her cognitive brain function, mood, memory, energy, concentration, balance, alertness, improved muscle tone, strength, speaking, mobility & general health. it made a tremendous difference to her. I am so thankful for the person that told me about it http://www.navig8.biz/LifeStyle2

My son wasn't preemie but was only 4# 1/2 oz. when he was born. Dropped to 3# 7 oz. when we brought him home 5 days later. He's almost 2.5 now and only weighs 24 lbs! He isn't on any growth chart but has consistently followed the "curve" so no worries!

You're doing well :) My preemie son was a 34wk at 3 lbs; 14 oz and 17 inches long. He is now almost 2 years old, about 24 lbs and 30 inches tall- give or take. He is a little on the lower side of weight for his age, but at this time his dr is not that worried about it. I can hardly believe how quickly time flyes. I thank God for the time I have with my son and am enjoying every stage of his life. I still have his first preemie onesie too. :)

oh gosh months..well its been quite awhile since your post Kristina so hoping everything is going well. My 3 year old weighs as much as my 4 year old. She was 4lbs 15 oz at birth and basically would stop breathing at every feeding...but caught up fast and now after many nights and really a year of worrying I actually really dont remember much of it. Now she is huge and thriving.

My premmie daughter weighed 1 pound 13 ounces at birth, 11 weeks early. She now weighs 25 pounds and will be 3 yrs on March 20th. My son was born 4 weeks early due to my having complete placenta previa, but he was in no way under weight like my daughter. He weighed 6 pounds 11 ounces, and now at 4 months weighs 16 pounds!
