Hey I haven't posted for a few weeks now, but its because i've been in the hospital. First off as some might recall I was due NOvember 7th with my first but the baby wasn't getting enough food or blood or really anything and was born MOnday the 9th at 1:35am by emergency C-section. He weighed 15.6 ounces just barly under a pound. Hes doing really good under the circumstances. He has a long ways to go but he'll be okay. Anyways I was wondering if any of you had a REALLY premmie early baby and how things worked out. Did your baby have any problems or anything. I'm just courious if I should start expecting the worst or keep myself possitive that hes gonna be perfect without any problems. Thanks for any adivce anyone might have.
Tara

my prayers are with you and your family. i had a friend in high school that her little brother was born 4 months premature and the only thing he had difficulty with was he was a little slow at first with walking and he was a little smaller than most little boys his age at that time, but all and all he is perfect. Don't expect the worst. Keep your head up and a smile on your face, i know that's easier said than done. Best of Luck!

Not to scare you but it will probably be a roller coaster ride with him being this early and that small. He will have good days and bad days. He will probably be in NICU for awhile. The only advice I have is to stay positive. Visit him often and talk and sing to him. A really good message board for prematurity is www.prematurelyyours.com . Everyone on the board has a preemie or is related to a preemie. They will gladly tell their stories and what to expect. My dd was only 6wks early so she didn't have many issues except temp control and feeding so I can't offer too much info. Your little one will be in my thoughts.

I just wanted to let you know that you will be in my prayers and God Bless You and your family! Sorry I don't have any good advice or knowledge on the subject! Keep faith and believe in your baby and when you are around him... make sure you let him "feel the vibes from your body" that everything will be okay and make sure he knows you're there!
