Thank you all for your posts. I visited with Julia this morning. She's having a pretty good day. She'll be 28 weeks old tomorrow and "2 birth weeks old" on Monday. We take it one day at a time and pray for the day she comes home with us. She's already a strong little girl and seems to be responding well to what the docs are doing for her. I'll post as I can.

Congratulations on the birth of your precious baby girl. Like you, my daughter was due in November, but was born in August. She was born at 26 and a half weeks. She will turn 11 years old in two weeks. I actually had to kick her off the computer so I could come post this. She is amazing, and taught us so much during her 4 month NICU stay and everyday after that. She is now a happy, healthy young lady. I pray that everything turns out for the best for your little Julia. She sounds like a fighter. Hoping you are doing okay, too. Please keep us posted.

Welcome to the world! I am so sorry you had to enter the world so early. I delivered my son at 25 weeks 2 days. He lived 6 days, but taught me so much. Some advice from what I have learned. If you do not live near the hospital, look into possible Ronald McDonald houses. If you are pumping, ask to do it in the hospital so you don't have to leave her. Ie ears of people actually sleeping on cots at the hospital so they can have naps without leaving. Also, take lots and lts of pictures and videos. You can also put something next to her, like a dollar bill, to show her growth.

Stay strong mama. There will be ups and downs. Just keep talking to your spouse, have a shoulder to lean on. Found a support group, which you have here. Good luck mama I'll be praying for you and your family.
