My little boy was born at 33 weeks as he had stopped growing due to pre-eclampsia and was 2lb 14oz. He never looked back. I think staff in NICU are miracle workers xx Best of luck to you and your baby boy xx

Hi hun I had my 1st son 15 years ago at 30weeks he weighed 2lb 7ozs, he had to have help with his breathing for 4 days but after that he came on really good he stayed in hospital for 6 weeks (weighed only 3lb 10)then I was able to take him home, the chances of survival are so much higher now that what it was when I had my son and he was fine, good luck hunni please let us know how u get on xxx

I had my first at 27 weeks was just spontaneous labour due to stress and a uti he was in for a while and was 2lb 10 born which is pretty big for a prem baby. He's now 8 with not a problem. They r great scbu doc and nurses. He was on a uv light for a couple of days as he had slight jaundice and didn't need much help with oxygen when born. The only thing that slowed him down coming home was because he was use to being tube fed it took ages for him to take to the bottle. I had to take a pump home and express for him as with him being soo small I knew breast was best for him. I had to stay in for a week as my organs weren't going back into place as quickly as they should which was a killer as I was put on the post natal ward and the only one there with no baby. Hope all goes well. Xx

all my babies have been born prem my first was born at 24weeks but didn't make it my second was born at 31weeks and is fine and my third born at 30 weeks they was all in the 3lb mark I wouldn't work the things they can do now is amazing, I am pregnant again and worried its going to be even earlier, they have not given me a reason for them being prem and its rather annoying that I have no answers, but my fingers are crossed good luck and enjoy your littlw bundle of joy xx
