My son was born at 34 weeks and he was right on with his due date until he hit about 4 months he caught up and grew in size.

with preterm kids (34-37w) there generally aren't huge issues, but there could be some things slightly behind.  My oldest was 34w0d and she was my latest to smile and coo and talk, but otherwise she was right on schedule with everything else, walking at 10.5 mos (9 adjusted), rolling at only 2.5 months (both ways, so 1month adjusted--very early, my two full-term children didn't roll until 4 months), etc.

Both of my boys were preemies. My oldest was born at 34 weeks and he was right on track with all of his milestones but he did have a speech delay but once he got help and started preschool he's speech started to get much better. My youngest he was born at 36.5 weeks and so far he is right on track with all of his milestones.

My DD was born at 36 weeks- 4lb 8oz. My little brother happen to be born 2 weeks later at 39 weeks and 7lbs 8oz. He can hold his head up at this point (5 months) and she can't just yet. She is still wobbly and puts her chin to her chest a lot still. He can also stand up if they have him supported against something. So yeah, we've noticed a little bit of a difference.

And actually, I forget where I saw it but somewhere online I saw that doctors have a specific name for where preemie babies should be, and where they actually are developmentally
