Working Moms

<t>Anyone else here a preemie working mom? I had to go back to work while Hannah was in the NICU[:(]. Talk about awful! I could only have 12 weeks off (without pay of course!). I had wanted to have some time off when she came home so I went back to work when she was stable in the NICU (My work and h...

Re : when do odds improve?

<r>Hi, Meg! My daughter was born at 26 and a half weeks. The docs said the same thing to us. Two days after she was born they prepared us for her death, and we had her baptized. She had caught an infection and was very sick. But then she overcame it. Then about three weeks later she caught another i...

Re : did your baby have a "pic" line?

<t>My daughter (26 weeker) had a pic line. I did not even really understand it at the time - I was in a daze, but I agreed to it. I actually told them to do whatever they felt necessary to save my daughter's life. We had no problems from it. Another mother in the NICU refused her son to have one. He...

Re : need advice tonight about elevated bp/pulse

<t>Laurie! I would either call your OB or go straight to the hospital. I had pre-e at 26 weeks and didn't know it. I was having problems breathing one weekend so I went into a walk-in clinic and the doc checked my lungs and said they were clear and sent me home. Two days later I went for my regular ...

Re : port wine stain???

<t>My daughter Hannah (26 and a half weeker) has a red mark on the back of her neck at the base of her head. The NICU nurses called it a stork bite and said it would go away. It's still there two and a half years later but her hair covers it. I also have a red birth mark all over my right arm. <br/>...
