My twins were born 22 years ago...:) 30 weeks gestation....2.5 and 3.5 lbs....now one is 6'6 and the other is 6'3....both in college....Good luck!!
I have had two preemies - my first was born at 28 weeks and weighted 2 lbs 2 oz. She spent two months in NICU, was off oxygen within 48 hours of her birth. She is now 12 and most people are amazed she was a preemie. My second preemie was born at 31 weeks and weighted 2 lbs 11 ozs. He spent one month in NICU, was never on oxygen, and was the pest of the NICU unit. He would constantly rip his leads off which would set off the alarms, he pulled any IVs out of himself, he even removed his own feeding tube. He is now 6 and like his sister no one believes he was a preemie. Both of them were born by emergency c section, since I had pre-eclampsia. Here are pictures of my two.
My baby girl was born at 31 weeks and 6 days.. she spent one month in the NICU and had some health issues in the first year but we got through it! She is currently 5 years old, in the 50th % of her weight and 95th % of her height!!!!!! No one even believes that she was a preemie any more! LOL! Hope everything goes well for you and your family!
