Re : Gift for NICU nurses

I gave our nurses a care package...it was winter, so it had different hot chocolates, teas, coffee, cookies, candy, etc....They seemed to like it, but said it wasn't necessary. Its hard to determine what to get?

Re : 25 Weeker

She weighs 1 lb 8 oz. I just think this is so unfair. And I feel awful for her. I am not close with her, don't even know her well, but I definitely feel connected through this. I wish I could help her!

25 Weeker

<t>Hi Everyone,<br/> One of my staff had her daughter at 25 weeks this week. I had my son at 29 weeks, which I know has a better survival rate, etc. If anyone has any success stories of a 25 week preemie that I can share with her, I think it would really help. She is so depressed and scared and I wa...

Re : Weight at one year

<t>I don't think the doctors even understand what to look for in Preemies sometimes. My son is 17 months old, he is 30" tall and 24 pounds and they say he is overweight. He was 2lbs 11 oz at birth...so tiny. Thats CRAZY if you ask me. I am choosing to ignore it....my doctor was concerned, but he loo...

Re : Am I insane??? UPDATE:

<t>I totally know how you feel. When my son was still in the hospital (he was there for 53 days due to being born 29 weeks) I could not stop thinking about getting pregnant again and having another baby. I even told the nurse in the hospital before I checked out that I would be back in a year.....I ...

Re : Ahhh to be normal

<t>Jenn,<br/> Thanks very much for your perspective. I want so badly to have another baby (someday, not yet- I know so many who are having their second, and their first is the same age as my Rowan (17 months....those people are SUPER HUMAN!) It has been an exhausting ride, but so amazingly worth it....

Ahhh to be normal

<t>I know I shouldn't complain and I know that I am SO lucky, my 11 week early preemie is 17 months this week and amazing with no deficits. But, I can't help thinking or wondering what its like to have a normal pregnancy and get to see your baby right away after he/she is born, start breast feeding ...

Re : COMING HOME!!!!!!!!!

<t>So exciting he's coming home! When I brought my son Rowan home, he was 37 weeks corrected ( born at 29 weeks). Until he was 5 months old, it use to take an HOUR of breastfeeding and then topping up with a bottle EVERY time. All of a sudden, he just got it and it was awesome. Now I can't stop him ...
