    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    and wanted to share my experience with my preemie! :grin: My son was born on June 18th 2009 exactly 5 weeks early. He weighed 5lb 1oz and 18 inches long. He spend his first 2 wks in the NICU and was discharged on my birthday! It was the best present I could ever get! :lightsmile: He spent his first 3 days of life on CPAP and then was breathing on his own without the need of oxygen or a tube or anything. He ate my breast milk through a tube for 3 or 4 days and then a bottle, breast or the tube which they left in his nose just in case! He is now 4 and a half months old and weighs 14lb 7.5 oz and is 27 inches long! He is measuring in the 50th percentile for height and weight on the regular baby growth chart (not the preemie one) and passed his developmental assessment for 4 months with flying colors! I'm so proud of him! My man! Hugs, Kaila
