So,my baby cousin was just born!! He is 3lbs and 15ozs!!! Poor baby!! Her due date was September 27th...
Were all really scared cause she gave birth to a still born at 6 months with her first pergnancy and then her 2nd was born at 6 months and she got it home and it died 3 weeks later from a pre mature disease.. Now this one was early also!! Please tell your premature stories!!!!!



Here he is!! Idk his name yet!! She changed it lol.. But this is the only picture we got to get so far!! He was born like 10 mins ago!(:

31 weeks is good, and that's a fine weight, too!
he should be all right, the main thing is to be super careful and make sure he doesn't get any infections.
but that's a good weight, with any luck he'll be home no later than his due date, but might even be home much sooner :)

I had preterm labor during my pregnancy. 31 weeks was our goal! Baby has a very good chance at being perfectly fine. The nicu time will be a trial though. I had a 36 weeker and he came home the day after he was born. My brother and his wife had their kids at 24 weeks and they are now 14 years old. They have some problems, but they were waayyy early.

My son was born at 33 weeks 3lbs9oz 16"long. he cried and was nice and pink. put on breathing tube for two hours to help him out...then oxygen for two days feeding tube for two days...he was in Nicu 10 days and stepdown 10 days. the only issues we had were jaundice and had to gain weight to go home. he came home at three weeks old weighing 4lbs 1 oz...he had a hernia and got surgery ....totally normal for preemie males and has reflux...no delays physically he tested at a four month level at two months....he now weighs almost 10lbs and is almost four months old. babies are tiny but very strong..my Dominick is a fighter and little miracle...best of luck and congrats on the new family member

My oldest daughter was born at 26 weeks, she spent two months in the NICU and she was 2lbs even. She was on a ventilator for a while and came home on oxygen and a heart monitor because she had apnea. Now she is a perfectly happy and healthy 3.5 year old :) dont get too worried, at 31 weeks even though that is early the odds are in baby's favor :)
