I was in another board and someone posted this article about a baby that was born at 22 weeks and survived! Amazing story. There are pics too, so if you sensitive to that type of thing, you might not wanna look. But it gives a glimpse of what your baby looks like at 22 weeks. So tiny!

That is amazing. She was so small and now she is 4 pounds. It is amazing what medicine can do these days. I agree with the last statement in the article about changing the time in Britain for abortions. I was googling something about using. paint the other night and a site for a medical clinic in PA said they do abortions up to 36 weeks. That is just absurd. Ok enough of my tangent.

Yes a baby can survive after being delivered at 22 weeks. My son is living proof. So please, if you are pregnant and having complications there is hope. You can visit my son's page and hear his story on a website called Caringbridge.org. Just type in caringbridge.org/visit/jaydenzambrano.
