My daughter who is now turning 9 this month was a NICU baby. She was born at 29 weeks and spend 2 months and 3 days in the nicu. There were plenty of ups and downs during her stay. I had a very hard time as she was my first child and something I never even thought I'd ever have to deal with. The Nicu and that whole experience made me who I am today and as helped with my experience a second time around.
I remember being scared out of mind while I was in labor, all I could think was how am I having this child so early, what did I do wrong, is she going to even make it, we don't have a name, we aren't ready yet, anything and everything went through my mind as the labor progressed, the birth, and of course the aftermath. In order to see my daughter my ONLY child I had to come to hospital everyday. She wasn't in no condition to come home but yet I was struggling so bad! She finally made it home 2 months and 3days after being in Nicu. I am forever grateful for such a place.

So many of us here have dealt with a long NICU stay and the traumatic and lasting effects it has on motherhood, well after they are discharged. I hope to hear more of your story and that you can keep us updated on your little girl.
