Hello! I just got back on the boards and found your post! Julia is precious and I'm so excited for you! The last few months must have been so draining!

I just found out that we're expecting again! I'm 5 weeks and am very cautiously optimistic.
We suffered miscarriages about the same time last year.

May you have a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I hope Julia is home in the next couple weeks!

Truly a miracle and an answer to prayers. I know you've had a long road, almost 4 months with her being here, and several months (not as long as you'd hoped) praying for her arrival. She looks like she's bursting with life and ready to make the world her oyster. Look at those sweet eyes! She's truly beautiful. I'm so glad you've shared her progress and pictures.

It won't be long and she'll be really strong. They do outgrow the apnea and brady's and it seems like it happens overnight. One day you'll be chasing her down the hall and you'll think, "how did we get here so fast?" One thing that will never change is your willingness to do anything for her. Praying for your continued strength and Julia's too. And hope you have one extra at home for Christmas!

Oh my goodness look at those beautiful big eyes! I'm keeping crossables crossed she makes it home for Christmas and will be just as excited if you're at least able to ring in the new year with her safe and sound at home.
