Tell us about yourself: I was induced due to pre-eclampsia and gave birth to my son at 34 1/2 weeks. He's in the NICU right now, though he's doing really well. He never needed oxygen and hasn't had any real feeding difficulties. He's off his IVs, antibiotics, and in the open air bassinet now, though they have him under the billirubin lights at the moment for mild jaundice. We're hoping he'll come home in the next few days.
Coming home and leaving my baby in the hospital is the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. It'd be nice to talk to other preemie parents. Thanks!
