My little was 5 1/2 weeks early due to me developing pre eclampsia at 34 weeks.  He was 5lbs 4.5 oz and 18.75 inches long. He was born by emergency c-section.

My son Joshua was born at 35 weeks & weighed 7 lbs 14 1/2 oz and was 21 1/2 inches...he spend two weeks in the NICU and came home with an oxygen tank and pulse/ox monitor for another 4 weeks. I had just been diagonosed with early stages of pre-eclampsia the friday before and was put on modified bedrest and saw my ob on the afternoon of 4/22/08...he was planning on putting me on full bedrest by the end of the week if things didn't improve...went home and my water broke that evening. After 18 hours of labor, I delivered naturally. People still don't believe he was a preemie.

My twins were born at 24 weeks gestation. My daughter was just 655grams and my son was 69grams.I had them by emergency c-section under a general anesthetic because I had not had pain relief during my labour and there wasnt time to wait for the drugs to work as I was fully dialted and my daughter had gone trans-verse(side ways).





My son was 690grams not 69grams!!

My first son Ethan was 7 weeks early and my second son Nicholas was 6 weeks early.  Both delivered by emergency C-section.  Both weighed 7lbs (not kidding) due to my diabetes.  My second son ended up with neumonia at 10 weeks, it was horrible.

My son Josh was 3 weeks and 4 days early. I went into pre-term labor at 32 weeks and spent a week in the hospital on a mercury drip to stop contractions. Then I went home on bed rest for the rest of the time. He was an even 6lbs when he was born. My son Kyle was 3 weeks early, they put me on bed rest early on because of the history with my other son. Kyle was 6lbs 3 oz. They were both born naturally but were induced. The dr didn't want them to stay under stress any longer
