My son was born by c-section and I had him at 33 weeks and he was 2.9lb, very small with big lungs. He breath on his on and stayed in the NIC unit for only 3 weeks, but they was the longest weeks ever. I came home at 3lb, he was so little, but did everything as a normal baby would. Now he crawls really fast and can go up & down the stairs alone, he so grown.

Quoting Rachel:

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.



I was on bedrest for a month with the Mag. There is a definate love hate relationship with that stuff.

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 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.
