Boy at 32 weeks, got one round of steroids - I was one day shy of having to get my second round; he was in the NICU for almost 6 weeks; born 3lbs 6oz and came home at 5lbs even. Right now he is 8 months old (6 months adjusted) and is almost 16lbs.

I had twin boys at 32 weeks,..they gave me steroids at 30 weeks, and the smallest baby was only on a ventilator for about 8 hours,,, My oldest but smallest baby was in there for 1 month, due to not passing his carseat test and because he got choked and stopped breathing, so he had to stay 7 days longer than his brother! The youngest but biggest was in there for 3 weeks..

 My son was born at 32 1/2 weeks at 2lbs 0.5 oz. I did have a steroid shot 3 weeks before delivery( they thought I might deliver even sooner).  He was in the NICU 6 1/2 weeks(46 days). He came home 6 days before his due date.
