38. Another one
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 10:37 PM by southerngirlwriter
Book of world records:

"James Elgin Gill was born to Brenda and James Gill on May 20, 1987, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He was 128 days premature, and weighed just 624 g (1 lb 6oz). James' parents were told he had no chance of survival. Much of his body was still developing, including his skin, hands, ears, and feet. James' eyes were still fused shut."

He's still alive -- he's about to turn 17.

9 months (38 weeks) is the usual gestation, correct?

38 x 7 = 266 days

266 - 128 days premature = 138 days gestating

138 / 7 = 19 weeks, 5 days

On edit: another poster quoted 22 weeks for this birth -- I copied mine but did the math myself -- either way it's MUCH earlier than 24 weeks.
