baby was born at 3lbs. treating him as a preemie because docs think my OB severely over estimated gestational age. they dont know how though because its an exact science usually

it is! because if they did an ultrasound before inducing me they probably would have seen measurments were off. but instead when my water broke they just induced me with pitocen going by my dates. but the frustrating part is it could have been prevented had they done an ultrasound they probably wouldnt have induced

If your water broke they may not have been able to hold you off very long I was born at 32 weeks cause my moms water broke and they were only able to hold me off a week before the risk of infection became to high

It's frusterating. Now that he is in the nicu be very in the know with his care. Make sure they tell you every medication and what it does before they give it, ask tons of questions; don't worry about annoying them. You're advocating for him.

you say preemie like you're proud or something. 37 weeks is NOT a preemie. sorry nice try. and after 36 weeks babies that are born and need help go to pediatrics not NICU.
