  • Awwww!! SO precious :)

    My oldest came at 37w1d, no NICU required. 5 lbs, 6 oz, 18 3/4" long.

    My youngest was born at 34w3d and spent 12 days in the NICU. He was born weighing 4 lbs, 1 oz, 18" long. He stayed in the NICU for 12 days. The first week was touch and go. He had apnea, brachycardia, and jaundice. The next 5 days were spent getting him on room air and being able to maintain his body temp in the open room. He's now a very healthy 7 year old, but still small compared to most children his age - he's 48" and 49.5 lbs.

  • My sons were due on 7/6/04. I was induced on 6/14/04. Craig was 5 lb 14 oz and came home with me. Neil was 3 lb 14 oz . He was in the NICU for 14 hours and then moved to the regular nursery. He came home at 5 days old weighing 3 lb 14 oz.


    They are 7 and you couldn't tell by looking at them now which was the smaller one at birth.  The doctor said that Neil was the smallest baby he ever discharged from the hospital.  My insurance wouldn't pay for the regular nursery and wanted him in the Peds Ward.  My doctor didn't want him exposed to the germs there.

  • My boys were both full term (at 8lbs, 6oz and 9lbs, 3oz, I wouldn't have wanted them any 'fuller'!). Your little darlings are absolutely adorable and I'm so glad they've both done so well!! Good for you!!!

  • Three of my four were preemies.

    My first child was Due Februray 14, I went into labor December 14. Unfortunately she passed away before birth, but she was 3lbs 8oz and was 16 1/2 inches long.

    My second child was due June 2, she came May 22, she was 5lbs 13oz at birth, came home at 5lbs 9oz and was 19 inches long. She is now 36 pounds and is 6 years old.

    My third child was due June 22, he came May 26, and was 5lbs 4oz, and was 19 1/2 inches long, he got down to 4lbs 8oz before he started putting on weight. He is now 4 years old and is 35 pounds. He had to stay an extra day in the hospital because he had jaundice.

    My fourth child was due June 22, she came May 31, was 5lbs 15oz and 19 inches at birth. She is now prety much a month old and is 5lbs 9oz and 20 inches long. She got down to 5lbs 4oz before she started putting on weight. She stayed an extra day in the hospital because she was hypoglycemic.
