    DS was born at 35 weeks and apart from some initial breathing difficulties he was fine and came home from NICU at 8 days old. He was 2.8kg and 48cm. He has got an underdeveloped or leaky gut which can also be cause by csection as they don't get the good bacteria that they would in a normal vaginal birth, which has caused him significant pain and discomfort, sleepless nights and some difficulties with hypersensitivity, but removing dairy and grains and eating lots of probiotic food has really made a huge difference.

    My waters broke at 35w4d. I had no medical issues and even till this day they don't know why I went early.
    Bubs heart rate kept dropping during contractions and when they hooked me up to the oxytocin to enduce, so ended up as an emmergency CS. DS was in special care originally due to low glucose level but was a lazy sucker so ended up staying there 2.5 weeks. He had a nasal gastric tube to feed till he could suck a bottle/boob by himself and then went home. He was born 6p3o, but overall he had no major issues and now 17 months old is still a strong little man who doesn't look like he was a premie at all!

    More than likely Braxton Hicks, but still.. exciting and very nervous all at once!

    Today I also noticed that my bump has lowered heaps.. at my last check up last week her bum was sitting right on my stomach, a massive buldge just beneath my breasts, but today she seems to have dropped right down.
    Just hope she stays in there, lol.. so tired tonight!

    SIL gave birth at 34+3.

    Nephew was 3kgs (!!!) and 52cm long. Was in NICU for about 10 days until he was feeding properly. If she'd gone to term he'd have been massive!

    Wowsers! Sounds like he would have been a whopper full term! DS was 5 days over and he was considered big at 52cms and 8.5p.
