  • I think my nephew was 7-8 weeks early. I can't remember exactly. My niece (same mother) was only two weeks early but she was tiny. She weighed 4 lbs 10 ounces. I couldn't imagine how small she would have been had she actually been preemie. I think that 22 weeks was the youngest ever in Switzerland or Sweden. I know when I went into preterm labor at 17 weeks here they told me there was nothing they could do except stop it and pray until 24 weeks.
