Re: Any 30 weekers?

I hope that everything is still going well! I just wanted to say that my sister and I were born at 31 weeks back in 1982 and the main problem was our lung immaturity. I don't think that the steroid shots were even available at the time, so that might not be as big of an issue today. We also had jaundice, of course, and were given blood transfusions because of all of the blood tests, but otherwise had no setbacks. My mom took us home breastfeeding and continued for the next year, and we weren't developmentally delayed. I myself have gone on to have a healthy, normal pregnancy with no preterm labor.
