  • No. Ds was born 3 days before his due date and dd was 'forced' out 10 days late

  • No, he came 2 days before his due date, so I would say right on time, at 7lbs 4 oz. If your son was 7 lbs I would say he wasnt early and that maybe the Dr got the dates wrong.

  • No not mine. My dh had a son before we were dating and he was seriously premature and died. I believe he was born at 27 weeks.

  • My daughter was 3 months premature ... weighed 2 lbs. 2 oz.  Spent 6 weeks in the NICU. A little late in walking but otherwise developed normally.  Truly my miracle baby!

  • My first was born 6 weeks early and weighed in at 4 pounds 1 ounce. (You'd never know it 7 years later.) My second was born right on time as a scheduled C-section weighing in at 7lbs.

  • Oldest was 3 days late, son was 9 days late, two youngest were forced out after 6 days of being late...although I am glad, as both of their umbilical cords were very long. My middle daughter's cord was a record for my doctor...4ft 7in. She was my tiniest at 5lbs 13oz.
