My DD was born 3 months premature (at 28 weeks gestation); weighed 2 lbs. 2 oz. Was expected to stay in the NICU for 12 weeks but was able to come home after 6. Hubby, son, and I visited every day, though when I think back, it almost doesn't seem real, more like a dream. It was difficult because of all the worry - we were told to prepare for the worst as far as her outcome but she defied all the odds. She turns 11 next week and has had no lasting effects. She's a straight-A student, is active in sports, plays the viola, and is in general, an all-around amazing kid. Truly my miracle baby!

My son was born preemie at 32 weeks. He weighed 4 lbs 1 oz. I was at home with my ex and went to the bathroom to find my water had broke. We went to the hospital and all I remember saying was 'I'm so scared"...pushed once and he was out. I didn't get to see him right away and he stayed in the NICU for 2 weeks. I would pump and take him the milk but eventually I stopped producing. My son is now almost 10 (in 8 days) and he is huge!!! They definitely say that preemies grow up to be big kids, and I believe it! I'm now pregnant with baby # 3 and am hoping to go full term. So far doc sees no reason to put me on meds to avoid pre-term labor. YAY!
