Hi - just spotted your question in the new threads and not sure if this will help, but I've got a pregnancy app on my iphone which says:

23 weeks - 10-20% survival, 90% rate of serious medical complications
24 weeks - 60% survival, 75% complications
25 weeks - 70% survival, 55% complications
26 weeks - 80% survival, 45% complications
27 weeks - 85% survival, 40% complications
28 weeks - 80% survival, 35% complications
29 weeks - 90% survival, 30% complications
30 weeks - 95% survival, 25% complications
31 weeks - 96% survival, 20% complications
32 weeks - 97% survival, 15% complications
33 weeks - 98% survival, 12% complications
34 weeks - 98% survival, 10% complications
35 weeks - 99% survival, 8% complications
36 weeks - 99+% survival, 5% complications
37 weeks - full term!

It does state that the rates are dependant on baby's sex and how good the SCBU or NICU is. Hope this helps x

The app is called ipregnancy and I think it was devised by a GP - but no idea where he got his info from. Could be really wrong!

Wow that's fantastic to know. My nephew was born at 32 weeks. He was 4lbs, stayed in for a couple of weeks but now he is 3 and has no health problems. Its so amazing to think how tough they are. I would like mine to stay in a few more weeks than that though

Girls are generally a bit bigger when they are born I think, could have something to do with it?

If you look at the growth charts for babies there is is a difference between girls and boys.
