    im not a preemie, i was actually born a few days late, but one of my good friends was a preemie.

    apparently she was born so early that the doctors werent sure she'd live to be three days old.

    now shes 15 =]

    I weighed four pounds and was a month premature. I have no learning disabilities or problems. I had to have braces too but that had nothing to do with prematurity!

    my friend sarah is a premie. i don't remember by how much but think she was around 3 pounds. when she was born he leg was at a 90 degree angel to her body so when she runs it looks sorta funny but other then that nothings wrong with her, shes pretty smart. shes has glasses and braces too
