Quoting Will☮Creedence:" Hey! Just gave birth to a 30 weeker Friday Feb. 1st http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2442030.html That's ... [snip!] ... have enough time with my older son and at the NICU and still enough time to sleep too. Whew! If you read this, I'm sorry lol"I will be honest with you, a NICU stay is an emotional roller coaster. How far do you live from the hospital, usually if you are 15 miles or more, you can see if there is a Ronald McDonald House nearby.

[snip!] ... of flu season they aren't allowing kids in the hospital at all and it's really bothering him. I'm also wearing myself too thin."Oh that made me remember back to when I would do kangaroo care with Anya, I would talk to her, and she was so tiny, but she would look up at me with such love in her eyes. Its very comforting for them I have heard, when they can hear your voice and feel your touch.

[snip!] ... and even after I finished I couldn't lay down because he was on my lap and would wake up. I hope counseling helps you!"oh I would start crying in the most awkward places too, like one night, DH took me out to dinner after we left the hospital, and out of nowhere I just started bawling my eyes out in the middle of the restaurant, luckily there was only one other table there, and they were on the other side, but the waitress came up to us and asked if everything was okay, and we told her we had a preemie in the hospital, and thats why I was crying. She said she would brb, and she came back with a dessert on her, and her manager told her if I needed to talk, that she could sit with us as long as we wanted her to. The other table was another server's table, and we were her only table, she sat with us for almost an hour, and I cried the whole time. That waitress, we are still friends with today.
Quoting Love Wedge +2:" What were your babies doing at 4 months corrected age? We had our developmental screen today and Bub ... [snip!] ... his language skills because he doesn't laugh much. He'll shriek and look like he wants to laugh, but it's not coming out yet."Anya was actually having a hard time meeting developmental milestones at this age, and she got an occupational therapist that came to our house and helped her out, and it was just the little boost that she needed, and then she started hitting them all on point. Now our only problem is her language skills and she is almost 4, so she is going to go start to go to a speech therapist soon.
