Hey mamma. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. :( Preemies are so hard to cope with.
Mine was a 34 weeker. She spent the first 2 weeks of her life in the NICU. It's hard but it gets easier. How is the babies health? How are you doing? Don't be scared to ask for help or for support. This is a hard time and you need help and love just as much as that baby right now.
Good luck mamma. Sending healing energy your way,

Hey there! Congrats on your son! My youngest son was a preemie. He was born at 28.1 weeks. He weighed 2 lbs 11 oz and was 16 inches long. He had to stay in the NICU for 69 days and had to have 2 surgeries. He just turned 3 on March 30th and is a happy and healthy kid! I am here if you want to talk about anything!
