Also quick question. I see that most of you have more than one child. Were any of you scared about concieving again? I always wanted a big family but after having one still birth and then having a micro premie I'm kind scared of what to expect next.

Thank you so much. I was kind of nervous because in the NICU she had a primary, now she has a different nurse every 6-8 hours.

Also, good news !, K'Lynn is will be one month 7.6.10 (32 weeks gestation). She is also on room air and is responding to it very well. !

That's great news :) At my hospital the nurses called that the fat farm...it's where the feeders and growers go to fatten up once their medical conditions are resolved/under control. Next stop after that is home!!

Congratulations :)

Thank you. This was great to read. I'm not that into spending a lot of money on sleeping equipment but I've heard that its not good to sleep with the baby in the bed. I really am just thinking bout using a bassinet so that she'll be everywhere I go. She has advanced so fast. She'll be at 31 weeks tomorrow and is 3 weeks today. I think she'll probably come home at the end of july or beginning of Aug. However, time is jus flying by so as long as she's doing well inside of the NICU all I can do is wait. I try to get my sleep in whenever I can but lately I've just been losing weight so I'm kinda focused on that and K'Lynn more than anything. It kinda of scary because within a week and a half of being discharged I lost almost 2oLBS, and it seems like I'm still losing it. Its kind of stressful. But thanks again
