dealing and coping with a premie question. Mgk Due September 16; 1 child; Pasadena, MD, United States 2420 posts

Hi. I had my baby girl at 26 weeks. I was wondering how you dealt with the situation of having a premie baby. She is doing so well she's not being intubation anymore and is a under the blue lights. The nurses keep telling me she's doing good. Which I can see cause they let me hold her twice but I'm so scared of losing her I'm terrified. Like right now I'm sitting here watching her and all I can do is cry. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get though the toughest thing you have ever done? Thank you in advice any advice is welcomed

                          I took it one day at a time was there everyday, pumped non-stop and took lots of pictures. Helped me know that even though she wasn't home I wasn't home I was doing my best for her :) plus after getting to know the nurses I knew she was in great hands with her nicu mommies. Praying for you and little one


(4 days old after getting off the bili-lights)

If they're telling you she is doing good, it is for a reason! 
Take it one day at a time. Cry if you need to because it is no good to keep it in. But don't stress yourself when there is nothing to stress over. She's under the blue lights so she's one step closer to coming home. That stage is the "woohoo!" Stage.

Just one day and one step at a time. Doing everything you need to like pumping, visiting, etc. My last was born at 30 weeks and spent 9 weeks in the NICU.
