Hi Kaz and friends.I've just finished reading about all your brave little darlings and am thankful that I had 3 healthy pregnancies and 3 bubs that went close enough to full term (the earliest was 5 weeks and 5lb 3oz but very heakthy). The boys are now 8,6 and 1 1/2 years old. Your postings should be made into a book. (I'm serious) They are so interesting, inspiring and moving that I'm sure it would be a bestseller, and if not then a great keepsake for when Caitlin is grown up. Kaz, you must make sure you at least print every page of messages as a reminder of those early days. Anyway, take care all. Hope to read more soon. Tania.

hi karen,
Hows everything going???? hows caitlin going??? Have you got her full report yet?

My boys are doing really well now (8 weeks premmie) the littlest one is now 4.7kgs the bigger one 6.1kgs my little man still has a little catching up to do ,but I'm sure he will be up to his brothers weight in no time.
They are now 21 weeks old (13 weeks adjusted).
i am just starting to see if they will sleep through at night, my bigger one has sometimes but I still feel I need to feed the smaller one. Although he did go 6 hrs last night.
They are both starting to laugh now which is ssooooooo cute.
Anyway talk again soon

Hi Kaz, My first son was born 5 weeks early because I have a small uterus which I was born with so it could only stretch so far and then out he popped. I didn't know this at the time so it was a surprise when I went into labour with a breech baby (he had no room to turn) and I had an emergency caesar. The doctor was then able to see the problem. My 2 other babies stayed in longer. It was able to stretch a bit further each time and my third was only 2 weeks early and 7 pounds. Hope all is well with you and Caitlyn. Tania.

Hi Karen,
Yes the boys seemed to be progressing well.
We have our next paed appoint on tuesday so hoping he is happy with them.
I don't know if they have to have anymore specific tests done cause last him the paed said "just treat them like normal babies" so I gather everything will be okay.
Mind you they were a lot bigger than Caitlin. What a doll.
Have a good day
