Re : book or web suggestions?

<t>Ditto to what the others have said..........We are a two-time NICU family. First was one day shy of 30 weeks, 2 lbs. 15 oz. Second, 27 weeks, 1 lb. 9 oz. Severe PE both times. The Newborn Intensive Care book that someone mentioned is great--a nurse lent us her copy while my oldest was in the NICU...

Re : Language delay

<t>My Andrew has gone through the same thing.........hardly speaking at all at 18 months, evaluated and determined to have expressive language disorder (what they called it, rather than delay), and began therapy in a private practice near here. Problem was that he just wasn't making progress, and th...

Re : Prayers needed. Urgent/ outcome

<t>Of course, like everyone, I am sending thoughts and prayers out for this 24-weeker, and hoping for the best. Hearing about this insensitive doctor makes me think of one that I had. I was hospitalized at 24 weeks with severe PE, and doctors told me I wouldn't "last" more than a few days before del...

Re : question about preemies

<t>Wow, all of this is so familiar to me, with both of my preemies, especially the first! We should have bought stock in the Purell stuff (hand sanitizer) and I used it so much my skin started to crack and was so dry. Eventually, I found a kind with lotion in it. We also put it on Andrew's hands, on...

Re : IV shunt near the Heart???

<t>Both of my boys had PICC lines, for the same reasons mentioned. Ethan's had to be moved several times after xrays showed it was in too far, or not far enough, as I remember. Also, he got an infection at one point which was determined to be staph aureus (sp?) and they began to believe it was "seat...

Re : I missed the "pregnancy experience"!

<t>Thanks so much to everyone who has written here....Intellectually, I do know that I am not the only one to feel as I do, but emotionally, sometimes you end up feeling alone in your situation. So, it is great to hear from others and know that we can talk through this "stuff" together and be helped...

Re : friend PE delivery at 26wks

<t>Maybe I can be of some help, since my son was born at 27 weeks, but was almost the same size as your friend's baby (mine was 1 lb. 9 oz and 12 3/4 inches). You mentioned that you have your own "preemie experience" but that you wondered how this one would be different--I think it will most likely ...

I missed the "pregnancy experience"!

<t>I feel somewhat ashamed or you might even say "ungrateful" to even be writing this, but here goes.........<br/> <br/> Have any of you moms out there, especially moms of micro-preemies, dealt with a grieving process due to missing a "real" pregnancy experience? This is something I don't really tal...
