Re: nathan nicholas born 3/10/11 via c-section 32 weeks

hi everyone, nathan is up to 4lbs 2 oz, which is great! he is off oxygen and keeping himself warm. they just started bottle feeding him and he's still learning that. he is being fed by bottle and NG tube. http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee95/nikkifae/Nathan/207313_607360263651_65005025_32816946_8...

Re: baby born at 32 weeks due to PIH/pre-eclampsia

new development is that i've started feeling like i have post-partum depression. i've had a few days of just non-stop crying and for a few days i couldn't visit the NICU, i was afraid i'd just bawl my eyes out because i couldn't even THINK about my baby without crying. i've been having a hard time w...
