Share your pictures! I have 2 that were born premature. My 9 year old was born at 36 weeks and my 7 year old at 32 weeks. Unfortunately I don't have any digital images of my 9 year old before 6 months but here is my 7 year old.

The day she came completely off the ventilator. 4lbs 2oz 17.5 inches 6 weeks old

The day she was coming home. 5lbs even and 19 inches. 9 weeks old :-)

Yesterday. 7 years old :-)

I have a 36 weeker and 2 37 weekers. The only one to have a NICU stay was the 36 weeker, he got too much magnesium in his system and had some breathing issues from it. He went home a week late. But all of my babies were born healthy. I have small babies regardless of gestational age. I have 5 children and have yet to have a 6 pound baby.

I have small babies too! They don't know why though. I had SO many nurses ask me if I smoke and I don't.

 Ahh... my first came at 37 weeks.  I was induced.  When I was 22 weeks pregnant, I had the steriod shots to mature her lungs, thankfully.  She was 5 pounds, 15 oz and was 18 1/2 in long
