when did your premie reach the growth charts?
posted 4th Aug '12
just curious and so i'm conducting an informal poll...
if you don't mind sharing, how early were you, and how long was it before your LO reach the growth charts? and what percentile were you when it happened?
i'll start: i have two 32-weekers, C (the bigger baby) reached 11th percentile at the 2 months well-visit, and D (the littler one) just reached 2nd percentile at the 10 week weigh-in
feels good to be on the charts. I *told her* that for any 100 babies her age we met, there was a 2% chance they'd be her size or smaller.... ;)

DD was born at 27/4 and weighed 1lb 7oz and was 12.5 inches. At pretty much 7 months exactly she made it on the charts...if you wanna call it that lol. She was .01% in height and .03% in weight.
She has since somewhat lingered at this area and at her 1 year check-up she weighed 14 lbs 13 oz.
