Re: Introduce your Preemie(s)!
I never noticed this forum before today and saw this thread. Both my girls were preemies.
DD #1 - Born at 35 wks 4 days at 4 lbs 15 oz. No stay in the NICU and came home after 2 days weighing 4 lbs 10 oz. My water broke and ended up being induced into labor. She is now 3.5 yrs old and doing great. You'd never know she was a preemie.
DD #2 - Born at 32 wks 1 day at 3 lbs 7 oz. She stayed 30 days in the NICU and came home weighing 4 lbs 12 oz. I got toximia with her and was admitted to the hospital on monitored bedrest a week before she was born. The blood pressure meds weren't helping and eventually magnesium and another BP med was added. I continued to go down hill and was induced into labor. DD2 is now 5.5 months (3.5 months adjusted) and is doing well. She's where you would expect development wise based on her due date. She has a few health issues, but the pediatrician said they aren't related to her prematurity. She is somewhere around 14 or 15 lbs now.
