Re: Introduce your Preemie(s)!

#1-Preemie: My son was born at exactly 32 weeks (4lbs 5 oz) due to unexplained PPROM. He spent 5 weeks in the NICU. Aside from some ongoing respiratory issues (bronchitis and asthma) he is doing great now at 2.5 years old.

#2-Full Term: My daughter was born at 38.5 weeks (7lbs 5 oz) after 18 weeks of progesterone injections (ouch!) and many cervical ultrasounds. I had PROM with her as well - not nearly as scary as it was at 32 weeks! She is 3.5 months old now.

The NICU experience is a unique one that only parents of preemie can truly relate to. I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's stories and getting to know you all!
