Full term after a preemie

Postby stacey0513 » Mon Jan 02, 2012 1:13 pm

I just wanted to share my story of going full term after having a 30 weeks preemie. My first baby was born 10 weeks early weighing 2lbs 1oz due to IUGR (interuterine growth restriction). He spent 2 months in the NICU. He has been healthy ever since but it was a ROUGH start! Anyways 3 weeks ago I had my second by scheduled c-section at 38 weeks and he weighed 7lbs 9oz. It was so amazing to be able to breast feed my little man in recovery and have him in the hospital room with me. We both went home the following night and things have been great! I just wanted to share my story and hopefully it gives some of you hope.
