Has anyone had a baby at 25 weeks?

My best friend had her baby at 25 weeks yesterday. He only lived about an hour. We have no idea what went wrong. She has had a healthy pregnancy. In the last week though she was having some pains. We had endles test done and everything came back good. Wenesday night she just had him though.

  • I started going into labor at 24 weeks but they were able to stop it so i didnt deliver till i was 34 weeks. But im sorry for her loss. That must be hard. When they are born that premature there is never a strong chance that they will make it.

  • I was actually reading online yesterday about a miracle baby that was born at 21 weeks and 6 days, but the mom lied and told the Dr that she was 23 weeks and 6 days since they wont try and save a baby before 24 weeks bc it's very unlikely they will survivie. This little girl weighed 9oz and was only 9 1/2 inches long. She's about 3 years old now and just fine. I'm an very sorry for your friends loss. I know it must be devastating.

  • My son was born at 25 1/2 weeks. He had a huge struggle but finally pulled through and now just has developmental issues. I'm sorry your friends baby didn't make it. I didn't have any difficulties in my pregnancy either. Just happened one day. She is in my prayers!
