34w2days

6lbs 2 oz 19 1/4 inches (she would have been huge ;) )

1 week in nicu because her lungs weren't fully developed.

she catches colds, ect every easily.  And it always goes to her lungs :(  Other than that, she is my biggest kiddo.  5ft 4 inches 140lbs almost 12 years old :)  We wear the same size shoe!

34 weeks - 5lbs, 2 oz...48 hrs in the NICU. Other than jaundice, no issues

3 other babies born at exactly 36 weeks....the smallest was 6lbs, 14 oz & the biggest was 7lbs, 12 oz. One was in the NICU for 6 hours when his body temp dropped (it dropped because he was naked to lie under the bilirubin lights). All 3 had jaundice, but no other issues.

All 4 met all milestones at their correct age (not adjusted age). My preemies were very hearty & healthy.

33 weeks. 5lbs 1oz. Spent 10 days in the nicu because he had no sucking refelx. He was tube fed til he was a little bit stronger. My youngest 36 weeks 5lbs 12oz and came home with me. Both have speech delay and my son was dx with spd. Both get sick easy and my son gets ear infections. My middle was my only full term baby 39 weeks and 6lbs 12 oz she is more advanced than the other 2 and soeacks perfect spanish and english.

How far along when they were born? 25 weeks
How big( or small i should say)? She was 11inches and 1lb and 6 Oz
How long in nicu? Just 2 days...
Any medical issues? N/A
Before and after pictures?? I don't really have before anf after pics. I mean, I do have pics of when she was alive and after she passed but I'm sure that isn't the before and after pictures you are referring to.
