My son Owen is now 10 days old. He was born 2lb. 5oz, 14" long naturally and vaginally. I had been in the hospital for 3 1/2 weeks on bedrest due to a placental abruption and had spent the 2 days prior to his birth in the high risk unit on magnesium sulfate (EWWWWWW) to halt the contractions. He is now 2lb. 9oz, taking feeds through a feeding tube and breathing on his own. He'll spend at least 8 more weeks in the NICU.

My daughter, Bethany was born on 7-27-09. She was 3 weeks and 4 days early. She weighed a healthy 7lbs, 9 oz. and 20 inches long. So she was healthy thankfully. She was born naturally. I feel very lucky that she was born healthy.

I had my son, Dawson, at 30 weeks 5 days gestation. He was a little over 2 months early. He weighed 4lbs 11oz and was 17.5in long. I am a diabetic, so that's the reason he was fairly bigger than what a normal preterm baby would have been at that time. I had him naturally. He came early due to placenta abruption.

my little poppy was born at 35wks + 4days, delivered by emergancy c-section as i developed HELLP syndrome and unstable gestational diabtes, she weigh4lb and 11oz 46cm long. she had to be retrived to the main children's hospital in town 30 mins away to be placed into NICU to be ventalated. thankfully she only spent 5 daysthere and then 1.5 weeks in the nursery. she had slight feeding issues until 10 wks of age when she totaly refused and now feed by a nasal gastric tube. they are doing tests but they think it is a severe reflux syndrome. hopefully we work it out soon so she can start feeding like a normal baby!

My son Tristan who is now almost 9 months old was born 2 months early. i didnt know i was in labor and when i got to the hospital they told me that my water broke and i was having my baby that day. i was in labor for about an hour, i had him natural, (no medication) he was 3 pounds 13 ounces. Every thing happened so fast.
my daughter was born 33 weeks/7 weeks early + the day before my baby shower.
she was 3lbs 1oz + 16in long
she got to come home from the NICU around 3 weeks
she's now just over a month old + is 4lbs 15oz + 18.25in long
I delivered naturally.
There were no anesthetics involved because the labor went too fast!
Water broke at 4:30am, Got to the hospital at 5:00am, Birth was at 6:38am
By the time the guy for the epidural got into the room, they were handing her to him to set on the warming table.

I had Cameron 2 months early, he was 2.9 pounds, very small, but with big will power. He came on breathing and crying, never had any kind of oxygen or anything. He was born by c-section, but I did have the two shots that help with his lung development. Now he is one and doing great.
