My friend's little sister is having her baby today! Only 27 weeks!

My friend's (since kindergarten) little sister, who's 18 years old, is having her baby today.  She is only 27 weeks along and they cannot stop labor.  We are leaving soon to go be with her.  She is basically alone, so going to give her support.  I had two premiees, but not that premiee.  Please keep them in your prayers!  Any moms with 27 weeker support?

Wow...that is very kind of you to go support her.  Everyone should have someone who cares about them that much.

Please know that I will say a prayer for all of you.  Good luck.

My cousin was born at 28 weeks, spent a month and a half in the NICU and came home before her due date! She's now a healthy, happy and VERY active 7 year old! :)

I will be thinking and praying for your friend! Sounds like she is very lucky to have you in her life!

Thank you all for your prayers.  Baby Boy Jacob Ryan was born at 6:41pm last night weighing 2lbs 4oz.  He's 15 inches long.  He's doing great all things considered.  He's on a CPAP.  They tried doing a canula today, but the attempt failed...he wasn't ready, so he's back on CPAP.  He's jaundice, but that's normal too.  He's really doing great for a 27.5 weeker!

Mom's doing great, having a hard time learning to pump, but she'll get there.  It's a very sticky situation with dad and grandma though.  Grandma is an overbearing control freak and boyfriend/dad is a possessive jerk!!!  So, she's in a tough spot.  

Thanks again!  Keep the prayers going!

I wish her good luck!  These days with the technology we have I'm sure he will be just fine.  What is CPAP?
