My sister just had a c-section at 28 1/2 weeks on Thursday, August 7, 2008. And the baby was 2 lb 4 oz. Mama and baby are doing ok. Lil Jo, as we call the baby, is doing fine. She a real fighter, breathing on her own by the 2nd day of her life! She's just so tiny. I can't wait to hold her, but I know it's going to take time and patience. I think the smallest baby to survive was like almost 11 oz! So I'm not worried about her surviving. One of my best friends in high school was 1 lb 1oz when she was born. But I'm happy I'm once again an auntie. See how tiny the diaper is! It fits in the palm of my hand!!
