Hey sweetie, don't worry so much. Boy or girl - this baby is gonna' be GREAT!
Sure the satistics show that girls do much better when born premature.... but it's just a satistic.
IF I though about satistics too much - heck- I'd never get in car, fly, wear a shirt with horizontal stripes ;o)
Just sit back, kick up your feet and think happy PE-Free thoughts!
I really attribute these happy thoughts to getting me to my 38th week with Natalia.
I know it's a scary time and it's hard not to let these thoughts cunsume your mind... but do try :o)
And off the top of my head, we have a few members with great preemie boy stories to share... Our own Ethan was born just over 1 pound and he just celebrated his 1st birthday! And our good friend "T" is the proud mommy of Casey (whom I've betrothed to Natalia ;o)
Big hugs, I know what's like.
Hang in there!
Lots of love, JEnn
