 I had my daughter on Thursday at 29w1d. She was 2lbs 11oz. I received two rounds of steriod shots and they seemed to help tremendously. She is 4 days old and only on 15% CPAP.:) We are on day 4 in the NICU and are extimated to go home somewhere around Thanksgiving.

 My dd was born at 31 weeks 6 days,

I got steroids 48 hours before she was born.   I was in a car accident that put me into labor.  She spent 22 days in the NICU and came home at exactly 35 weeks gestation.  She was on cpap for 5 days then o2 at 30% for about a week after that. She was 4 lbs 5 oz at bityh got down to 3 lbs 13 oz and at 3 months old she is almost 10 lbs.

We had a boy. Yes we had the steroid shots. I was in the hospital for a week on bed rest before I had him so I had at least 2 doses of them. I had him 10 weeks early. He stayed in the NICU for six weeks and I had to fight to get him out then.

I had my daughter at 28 weeks 6 years ago. She was 2 lbs 7 oz, and stayed in NICU for 111 long days, was barely over 4 lbs when she came home. At the time my doc didn't really tell me why she came so early.. when I was pregnant with my second, I asked one of his nurses if she could tell me what was in my file. She looked back and said that my placenta was infected and that was the reason.. Six years later and you can't tell that she ever had any problems as a baby :)  She has surgery scars and  a g-tube site scar that she's gonna hate when she's a teenager lol but aside from being a little smaller then the other 6 year olds she's doing great now.   Good luck with your little one and hang in there :)
