The survival rate for even "micro-preemies" is amazingly high. I copied this from http://www.squidoo.com/preemiesurvivalrates.

Up until 21 weeks: 0% survival rate

at 22 weeks: 0-10% survival rate

at 23 weeks: 10-35% survival rate

at 24 weeks: 40-70% survival rate

at 25 weeks: 50-80% survival rate

at 26 weeks: 80-90% survival rate

at 27 weeks: greater than 90% survival rate

according to the March of Dimes

My doctor told me that once you hit thirty weeks it's mostly about weight. Of course it's better, much better, for the baby to make it to full-term.
