My DD was so petite! She was long and skinny, at 20.5 inches and only 6lbs 14oz! She was overdue (absolutely ZERO vernix, wrinkled skin, she came out totally clean with the caul intact. I know she truly was overdue...) she was absolutely swimming in newborn onesies at first! My friends had to run out and make an emergency shop for preemie sleepers!
My son was born at 34 weeks and while he was "preterm" (although right on time for what he had, babies with his condition don't ever go past 35 weeks maximum) he had rolls of fat on his fingers, chin and neck. I'd never seen a preterm baby up close before and he did NOT look like the ones in pictures. He was fat... just smaller. I figure he would have been a lot bigger than my DD if he'd gone to 40 weeks.
I want this one to be bigger!!
