I had my bub at 25+2 weeks in July last year (she will be 1 on the 9th!). She was 680g and 31cm. We had to be flown by the flying doctors to a bigger hospital 400km away. It was a long long journey for us. She was ventilated for 2 weeks and cpap for 9 weeks. Emergency surgery at 9 days old due to a hole in her intestine from infection (I couldn't believe they were able to operate on a baby being 700g!) she had a stoma for 8 weeks which was then closed again. She had a number of infections, 12 blood transfusions, slightly damaged eyes (due to oxygen usage) and struggles to put on weight (despite a massive appetite!). We had her home for 2 weeks before being flown back to hospital for emergency surgery due to a blocked bowel (from scar tissue). Home for 2 weeks and then flown back for a third time for more surgery for another obstructed bowel and a hernia. We were in hospital for almost 6 months, discharged on boxing day 2011. She's now almost 1, weighs 5.75kg and is 65cm. She's doing well developmentally (with the help of physio) and a really happy little girl! I'm 17 weeks pregnant now, so OB is keeping a close eye on me, fortnightly ultrasounds and I take progesterone daily. There was no reason given for the early delivery, just went into labour and it couldn't be stopped, my waters broke about 2 mins before she was born. My fingers are crossed to at least get past 30 weeks this time!
