My preemie is brand new born tonight, 11-17-12, at 7:15 pm. He was 4 pounds even and almost 31 weeks. Breathing on his own with only a nasal cannula! I have been on hospital headrest for 2 weeks for ruptured membranes at 28-4 weeks. Spiked a fever tonight and had to get him out!

Congrats! I hope he has a short, uneventful NICU stay!

I'm on my phone, so no pics. My preemie was born at 32 weeks and weighed 4lbs 5oz. He was in the NICU for 5 weeks. Now he is a big, healthy boy, who is turning 5-years-old in a few weeks!
