Has anyone had a premie baby?

My two youngest were both preemies. My 3 year old was born at 27 weeks and my two year old was born at 31 weeks due to an abruption. I was told that both would suffer long term problems because of this. They are now 2 and 3 and both are above average intelligence and have suffered no bad effects from their birth. The thing to remember is the doctors and specialists are definitely NOT always correct

Yep... 2 of them. One born at 33 weeks due to an abruption and another at 34 weeks due to low amniotic fluid. Now that they're 1 and 2, they are like other "normal" kids and were even meeting all of their milestones on time in the first year. One even started walking at 11 mos, so don't think everything changes because of their preeminess ;)

Yes, I have. I have a son who is 4 (will be in May). He was born at 24 weeks gestation. He weighed 1 lb 4 oz and was 12 in long. The most scary time of my life. I had to have an emergency C- section due to losing the amniotic fluid somehow and my blood pressure was high. The doctors was unable to get under control.
