Congrats! I had a boy at 27 6/7. He was 1 lb and 12 oz and 12 inches long. He is now a fabulous 4 year old! He is as smart and as funny as they come. We have another friend that had two boys at 26 weeks two years apart and both are fabulous too. Good luck to you!

And the gender is...

And the gender is.....another boy!

To be honest, I was a little dissapointed, ONLY b/c of the fact that girls tend to do better than boys when born prematurely.
Other than that, I couldn't be happier-I would love another boy-I just want him to stick around!

Anyone have any good experiences to share of boys that were born around 28-30 weeks that pulled through without any probs? I could use some confidence...the news worried me a bit. I'm just so hoping we will last longer this time..
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!
