Hello! My name is Megan, and I had a preemie baby this year! My daughter ( Isabella Rose ) was only 31 weeks when she was born!
She was due on Aug.13th 2007, and ended up coming into the world on June 24th 2007, weighing only 3 lbs 14 oz and 16 inches long! She didint really have a long stay at the NICU only 3 weeks and came home breathing and eating all on her very own! Isabella is now 18 lbs 2 oz. and will be 6 months on Dec. 24th 2007!l_5d2ace7e32632439163e1d64e75adf59.jpg

To the person who originally posted, has your baby come home yet? I don't remember seeing an update from you! My daughter was born at 28 weeks and came home 39 days later at 4lbs 5oz and at 34 weeks gestation - My son was born at 30 weeks and has been in the NICU for almost 4 weeks, he should be home in a few days!
