Not exactly sure what a rutabaga is but you boys weigh about the size of one, about 1.5 lbs.  Your length is 13.5 inches, head to heel.

Odds of a Premature Baby’s Survival by Length of Pregnancy

Length of Pregnancy Likelihood of Survival
23 weeks 17%
24 weeks 39%
25 weeks 50%
26 weeks 80%
27 weeks 90%
28-31 weeks 90-95%
32-33 weeks 95%
34+ weeks Almost as likely as a full-term baby
