I hate the place I'm in right now. After my last baby was born at 25wks, and I passed that point with this pregnancy, I allowed myself to believe I was going to have a take home baby. Well I didn't make it. Baby failed an nst and my pressures shot up and now I'm back at the nicu. She is healthy and doing well so I should be grateful but I am finding myself numb. It all happened so fast (8hrs from nst to delivery) and now I feel like my body has just failed me again. I can't believe I'm doing this again :'(

Congratulations on your new baby girl! I am glad to hear she is doing well.
But it must be very hard to do the NICU again. I keep you in my thoughts and will keep my fingers crossed for both of you. (hugs)
