Re : Postpartum sweating from mag. sulfate?

I'm going through that right now. Ugh, I hate waking up in soggy, cold sheets and clothes. My t-shirts are just soaked. I hope it goes away soon.

She is up to 12 cc's per feeding (gavage). They DC'd the bili light b/c her labs were low enough that they said she doesn't need it. <br/...

Re : Bethany is coming home

yes 11 days must seem like it just stretched out forever. How wonderful to take her to her new home and have her start her new life with you. When will she come home, today, tomorrow? Do you have a special "going home" outfit? Congratutulations!

Re : Do you ever feel guilty? (child loss ment too)

<t>This is my first post on this board. Yes I feel guilty. I was talking to one of the NICU nurses today and she said that is common. I think we so want to protect our kids and we feel like we let them down. I see my little baby going through the discomfort she is down in the NICU and I think, if sh...
