DS2 was a 36 weeker, so not crazy early, and he was still 6lb11oz.





And now

The nurses teased me that maybe my dates were a month off. They and we knew the dates were right, I just make fairly big babies. DS1 was 38 weeks, 8lb6oz.

Re: National Preemie Awareness Day

I had a big preemie too! The NICU nurses kept saying "we never get babies this sick this BIG" lol He would probably have been over 10lbs had he been allowed to go full term.

Here's my little 36 weeker! 7lbs 2oz in NICU for 6 days



And here he was last week

Wow I can't believe all these late pretermers that had such trouble and long NICU stays. Makes me feel even more blessed my LO did so well. At 33 wks he had O2 for less then 1 hr, NG and IV tube for 48 hrs and only an 11 day stay. My hats off to you mama's that had a difficult time.

Love all these pictures.

I wish I had a "now" picture of my 25-weeker.
