Adjusted Age ZERO

DUE DATE, invisible readers!


Jane is zero today! Have I explained the term "adjusted age"? Pretty simple really. You just subtract the number of weeks Jane was premature from her chronological age. Today Jane is 13 weeks old, and she was 13 weeks premature, so today is her zero day. Before that she was however many gestational weeks she would have been; yesterday she was 39 weeks 6 days. Get it?

Let's take a quick look back, shall we?


Look at that tube.  It was twice the size of her arm.


From one pound, fourteen and a half ounces of tiny fragility to six pounds, twelve ounces of adorable chub and outrageous strength in thirteen unforgettable weeks.
