I had 4 of my 6 come early. Son at 35 1/2 wks weighed 6lb 9 oz, son at 37 wks weighed 8lbs 9 oz, daughter at 36 wks that day weighed 7lbs 3 oz and son at 37 weeks weighed 9lb 4 oz. All were vaginal deliveries, some with meds, some without. Some had serious health issues resulting, some did not. I was told that I probably had HELLP syndrome and that I was lucky to have been able to carry any of them as long as I did.

My son was born at 32wks (after a few weeks or preterm labor, bed rest and hospital bed rest with mag), he weighed 4lbs 6oz and was 18.2 inches long. I delivered him naturally. He spent 2wks 6days in the NICU (learning to eat, hold his temp, and breathe on his own). Now he is a energy filled 3yr old, that is approx 44inches tall and weighing in at 39lbs.
I went into preterm labor with my daughter at 20wks, was put on bed rest, had the cerclage put in, and went home on strict restrictions. Cerclage was removed at 36wks, I delivered her naturally at 38wks. (We arrived at the hospital at 10:58p.m. she was born at 11:03 p.m.)

I had preeclampsia with both of my boys, but my oldest wasn't born premature whereas my second one was. My oldest was born at 37 weeks and weighed 5 lbs 11 oz.19 1/2 inches. My youngest was born at 34 weeks and 4 days at 3 lbs 12 1/2 oz. and 17 inches. They were both due around the same time and I was in labor for 11 hours with both of them. My oldest was born at 4:33 pm and my youngest was born at 4:57 pm. They were both born naturally.

My son Gabriel was 3 lbs 14oz at 37wks, due to placental infarction and my preeclampsia nicu dated him at 34wks. He was surprisingly born by natural and epidural. Neonatologists had to resusitate him at birth, though. He is healthy and curious 10month old now. :D
