Hi My name is Amanda. I also had a premmie baby, about my liitle baby boy was only 9 weeks early. So mostly know what you have been going through. My little boy was born on the 19/03/03 was due on the 18/05/03. He spent 9 weeks in two hospitals. Our baby arrived home a week before Mother's Day last year. He is now 10 months old, he is a bit smaller than a baby that was on time. But he is now sitting up by himself, he was crawling around 7 months. And now he is having two meals a day.

If you would like talk to me some more about my premmie baby. My E-mail is
Please could you please put
Att: Amanda on your E-mail.

Wow you are so brave! I just finished reading all of the posts! Amazing! I hope she comes home soon! Please keep us up to date!

Hi again,

Congratulations on all of Caitlins progress. I was finally right about something....she did have a huge growth spurt and was building up for it. wink

Goodluck with the U/S results,

Hi Kaz,
Sounds like Caitlins pretty much ready to come home now. Shes probably realised that the sooner she piles on those kilos the sooner she can get the hell out of there. Hope the needles went Ok. I still think that she'll be home on the 4th. i hope if i'm not right I'm not far off. She sounds like the "perfect prem".
Take care
