My daughter was born 7weeks early due to me having a very serious heart condition that noone picked up on before then.. She is my first premature baby.. I was so terrified for her.. she was so tiny and small.. ive got other children, they were 8lbs 10 and a half ozs and 10lbs 5ozs respectively.. What was it like for you? how different is it for a premature baby to a full term baby?

I am blessed, I havent had any problems with her, she has a funny valve in her heart which has given her a heart murmur and they have told me its not going to affect her at all, which is great! :) she goes a little blue at times but thats from her heart.. we have another pead appointment next week, i am really hoping they are happy with her as i am!
