  • My friend delivered at 25 wks, her baby only weighed 1lb 15 oz. Don't recall how long she was. She went home almost 8 months later, weighing a lot more, but then passed away almost one month shy of her first birthday.

  • I was a preemie. I weighed 1 lb 10 ozs and was 13 inches long in 1977. I think I was around 27 weeks. My mom never got the chance to tell me all the details. (she died when I was 9). I was lucky enough to have 2 healthy boys born term(and then some). Hopefully baby boy #3 waits until Sept. My (step)mom works with preemies @ Duke. She loves her babies. I wish all the babies and their families all the best.
