I am new here and I am looking for some advice.
My son was born in April. He was a 27 weeker, I had pre-eclampsia and *p syndrome as I know many of you have had.
I have a double question, first of all my son is 10 months now (corrected age 7 months) he weighs about 14.5 and is 25 inches long. I am worried because he did not have much weight gain in the past month and I really got used to him gaining about 1lb. a month. My Dr. says not to worry and we should keep an eye on it. Did any of you see a slow down in growth at a certain age??
My second question is about his testicles, we are going to a urologist next week for a visit, it seems as if the little buggers are hiding (not missing I hope) I know this is common with boys both full term and preemie, did any of you have this to deal with as well??
Any advice or help would be great, I hate to be so worried all of the time.
