Re : AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

<t>I know how tiring the NICU is! We were there for 9 months. Our son was still having brady's while pooping and/or with reflux too. They "seemed" to be resolved, he was discharged and kept having them at home. After a month, he was readmitted. After the second discharge, he was finally okay. In sho...

Re : Decided to officially STOP ttc

<t>Thanks so much for your support ladies. For those of you who have lost your little ones, I am so sorry. I am certain that had Jacob not survived, I too would have kept trying. Jacob has a number of special needs (cerebral palsy, tracheostomy, g-tube) due to his premature birth. For a while, I thi...

Decided to officially STOP ttc

<t>Well, after 2 years of half heartedly ttc, DH and I have decided to stop. I have called my OB to get my tubes tied. I wanted to wait until I felt absolutely certain, which I now do.

Re : Why can't I get over this already??

<t>I can definitely relate to how you are feeling! My son was born at 26 weeks and will be 4 in a few weeks. This is the first birthday that I have not been reliving the whole trauma for the weeks leading up to it. I am actually looking forward to his birthday:).<br/> <br/> I ended up taking antidep...

Re : Going at it alone--a preemie parent.

<t>I would definitely recommend some couples counselling if you can manage it financially. I remember reading early on that the divorce rate is a lot higher for parents with children that have special needs. Counselling definitely saved and strengthened our marriage. DH is a SAHD, so sometimes it is...

Re : Chronic Pneumonia Question

<t>Our son has had several bouts of pneumonia due to his chronic lung disease - former 26 weeker. We were told the lungs continue to rebuild new lung tissue until 8 years of age. After that, the lungs will pretty much have repaired as much as they are going to. Unfortunately, I think this is one of ...

Re : What was your facial swelling like?

My face literally looked like a balloon the day I delivered, my facial features were all blurred - I almost screamed when I woke up in the morning!

Re : The Worst Part or Maybe The Best Part

I don't think you are crazy at all. I'm a believer in things happening for a reason and it sounds like both you and your DH have clarity that you definitely want to add to your family. Best of luck TTC!
