preterm birth

Any other mommies have the scare that the baby is coming preterm? My dr think my little girl will be here between 32-37 weeks.. i just had a series of injections to help her lung development  when she does come early

My little boy was born at 36 weeks and was in good health. His first year has been difficult. RSV. Milk protein allergies and eczema.  Which pediatrician attributes to being early. He will be a year old on the 10th and he is off all medications and is slowly switching to plain old milk. Things will be fine. Being I. The hospital you will have the best care.

I just had my twins at 28 weeks. I also had the steroid shots to help protect their lungs. They're doing awesome and breathing on theirs on. Of course they'll be in the NICU for awhile but i know they're healthy.

My son was born at 32 weeks. He was only 3lbs 13 oz. but healthy. Don't stress so much. Today's medical knowledge is amazing and everything will be perfect and ready for your little one.
