    Thanks for the update swizly555. Have been thinking of you and your little one. Fingers crossed bubs can stay in a lil longer but if not it's fantastic you have officially made it to 37 weeks . Please keep us updated if you can and i'm sending positive thoughts your way

    Best of luck!! My dd made it to 35 weeks and was born weighing 1.9kgs. She wasn't growing so was induced.
    She is now 20 weeks and weighs 4.5kgs., so getting there but still small!!!
    Wishing you all the best!

    Thank you so much for the offer, that is just so sweet and thoughtful Are you sure you don't want to hold onto them and use as a gift for a friend?
    I am so use to 4kg babies that I am a little worried about what to do with a smaller bub... I just hope feeding goes well, although I have heard IUGR babies come out hungry

    Thanks everyone for all the thoughts, at the moment I feel like I am going 2 days at a time as it seems every 2 days there is an appointment/monitoring... Bubhub is keeping me sane
    Adden - wow your DD was a tiny bub . How did you find feeding? My DD and DS both fed really well and were off the charts in the other direction for their weight, they both still are for height and weight so I am hoping its a sign this little bub can grow just as well once he is out

    Not at all, in happy for them to go where they're needed. I could hold on to them for ages waiting for a friend to have a small baby. I'd rather them be useful to someone than sitting in my cupboard here!
    If you would like, just pm me your address and I'll pop then in the post.
    I had a friend last year have a little bub and she said the feeding took a little bit to get used to but then she took to it and never looked back! I'm sure with your experience you'll be fine and your little one will thrive once he meets his new mum and family

    oh yes I remember that feeling of living appointment to appointment very well. It's a tough thing to do especially when you have other kids at home. The only way I got through it was by knowing I was as prepared as possible. I always had a packed bag in the car ready to go and instructions for my son for who ever was going to have him. I think the uncertainty is the hardest part of it all.

    My son was a fantastic feeder from birth and has caught up very quickly. They are so right when they say they come out hungry, my son most definitely was. Because your bub is now technically full term there hopefully won't be any issues feeding as he will be fully developed just smaller.

    She had troubles latching (still does) and we used nipple shields (still do!)
    But ds was hard to feed too. She feeds so well with the shields and I actually enjoy feeding for the first time ever!
    I get a lot of surprised people when I say she is nearly 5 months.. But she is perfect!!
    The hardest thing about a small baby was changing her nappy!!!

    Thanks you for the stories and support, it really puts my mind at ease, especially when it comes to feeding.
    Adden, she looks so tiny in the early days! Must have been a scary time for you. She still looks so little but perfect!
