My son was 3 pounds and 15oz. He was born at 34 weeks and 6 days. He is still in the hospital where he must learn how to suck from a bottle, maintain his temp. and wieght. So stressful bc I went through the same thing with my daughter who was born at 32 weeks weighing 3 pounds and 13oz. Almost the same weight as my son at 34 weeks almost 35. My daughter is now six and doing really well. You cannot even tell that she was a preemie. I try to be strong everyday hoping my son can get all this down pack soon so he can come home and be with his family.

I just had my fourth child a girl last night! 24w,but it was more like 25w6d. They were measuring me "small" for how far along I was. But I have always measured small with all my other pregnancies. But Rion is 1lb 12oz 12in. Has a rocky start but I'm being optimistic and hope that it will get better.

My son was almost 8 weeks early weighing 3lbs and 9ozs. After 21 days at the hospital, he was able to come home to his family. I will never forget the funny story of how my best friend and I were due only 4 days apart. We went through our pregnancies together and joked about how we were going to be roommates at the hospital. Two weeks before my son was born I got a call from my friend saying she was headed out of town to another hospital to deliver her baby girl. She delivered almost ten weeks early. Thankfully her beautiful lil girl was fine. She did have to be on a breathing machine but other than that, she was doing great. Two weeks later I went to my drs for a stress test and failed. I then went to the hospital for further testing and found out I was in labor and had to have an emergency c section. We delivered a healthy, tiny angel. His lungs were fully developed and seemed to be in good health. Other than just being so small. Later that evening I found my friend entering my room. I was so happy to see her and even happier at the news that her daughter was in good enough health to be transferred to our local nursery. So, we were only four days apart from our original due dates, both had premees, and our children ended up being roomies any way. Their incubators remained side by side! We will share this story for the rest of our lives.....

My daughter was born @ 27 weeks and weighed 1lb 12oz. She was off the ventilator after 1 day and was in the NICU for about 3 months. She had 1 blood transfusion. I breast fed (until I couldn't produce anymore milk) but she got breast milk for at least 6 months. I truly believe this helped her thru as well. My daughter is 5 now and you would never know she was born so small! She came home weighing just over 4lbs. and within 1 month she was 10 lbs. It's such a blessing that we have her! We nicknamed her Tuffie because she was so "TOUGH" in the NICU! We kept a journal in her room at the NICU and wrote in it every day - and anytime her Grandma's or aunts/uncles visited they would write a little something as well! The nurses in the NICU are our Angels forever!

My son was born at just 22 weeks weighing only 581 grams and 12 inches long. Today he is full of energy and a smile that goes for days. He is a rare exception. I know how blessed I am. I'm hoping my son's life changes minds (and standards) on the rules of "survivability".

my baby was born at 39 weeks gestation at 5 lbs .03 oz, like a lil baby doll, they induced me cuz she was measuring small in the unltrasound in my womb, but due to her congenial heart defect av canal wich makes it hard for her to gain weight, its still a problem with her weight she isnt gaining enough she gains n loses due to her not feeding well with the heart defect, she is on a 27 calorie formula diet, they are thinking bout puting her on a feeding tube, but its very hard feeding her, its like forcing her to eat, its frustrating n overwhelming to deal with, the doctors want her to gain a certain amount a weight before she goes into open heart surgery. im at several doctors appointments every week which consists on seeing pediatrics, cardiology, neurology, opthalmology,hematology/oncology,orthopaediology, and plastic surgery. im stressed and only god can keep me saine.
