    Hey y'all!  I'm a mom to preemie twin angels Emilyn and Hailey who passed away shortly after they were born at 20w5d in November 2009.  Also mom to my son Elim, our full term miracle born at 38w3d in February 2011 and expecting another little one in November 2013!

  • Mommy of 2 preemies!
    Hello everyone! I'm an Broken Arrow mommie of 2 premature babies....well....they aren't babies anymore. Lincoln was born March 10, 2007 at 31 weeks and Lauren was born April 8, 2008 at 33 weeks. Both had no problems but to feed and grow. Lincoln was in the NICU for 25 days and Lauren was in for only 7. It's amazing the difference. But they are both healthy and so smart...you would never guess they were born premature. Until I had 2 I had never known anyone who had premature babies or even losses. I have a girlfriend you had her 1 baby girl at 28 weeks the same day that I had Lincoln so we had a support group just the 2 of us! I also have a girlfriend you lost 2 baby boys due to IC but with a successful TAC put in was able to have a beautiful baby girl.
    My heart goes out to all you preemie mommies who have babies in the NICU. Keep praying and know that God is with them. And those with angel babies you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I've attached a pic of my kiddos!
  • Twenty six weeker with level 3 and 4 bleed
    Hi, I am new to this site and was hoping to meet other moms with similar stories. I have a beautiful baby boy born at twenty six weeks having a level three bleed on the left side and a level four bleed on the right. My husband and I were asked to withdrawal support for him when he was two days old. He will be seven months tomorrow and doing well.

  • New From Oklahoma
    Hi Everyone

    I am new to this site. My husband and I are first time parents to twin girls born at 28 weeks. They were born November 11, 2006.
    Kenli was born weighing 2lbs 6 oz and was 14.8 inches long and Kenzi weighed 2lbs 11 oz and was 15 inches long. Kenli had a harder time in the NICU. She was placed on NEC watch two different times and Kenzi just had the typical preemie behaviors. Those were the brady's and the apnea. They each had two blood transfusions. We were truely blessed not to have any other problems. We left our NICU family on January 4, 2007. The girls both came home on apnea monitors. They were both on those for 6 months. Kenli and Kenzi are now almost 9 months old. They are rolling every where, almost crawling, and cutting teeth. I thought the day would never come that I would get to bring my babies home. Now here they are. Time really does fly. My husband and I just want enveryone in this situation to remember to keep the faith. There will be many ups and downs. We know the rollar coaster ride you are on. So we would love to hear any stories anyone would like to share. Good luck to you all. God Bless.

    Sorry I haven't been on here in a while. Soonerstart has been going okay just not making any progress with my 2 year old. She only says momma when she wants. Right now it is sometimes hard b/c I don't have my 3 month old. My sisters baby gives me some peace b/c I know Jocelyn is telling me that when I take care of my nephew that it is okay with her. If you want you can e-mail me any time (momof_4girls@yahoo.com). I will talk to you later. Misty :smile: :smile:

  • I am sorry to hear about your 3 month old. Thanks for welcoming me here. It is good to get to know other moms especially ones that have been through this same ordeal. How is Soonerstart going for you? We have another therapy appointment this coming week. Hopefully it will go well.

  • Also from Oklahoma
    I just wanted to say hello and put myself out here. I am from Oklahoma also.....near OKC. I have b/g twins that turned 19 months old yesterday. They were born 6 weeks early and spent only 10 days in the NICU. They weighed 4.12 lbs. and 4.4 lbs. and were 18.75 inches at birth.

    On their due date, my daughter became very ill and was checked into Children's Hospital at the OU Med Center. She was there for 2 weeks. She had Pyloric Stenosis but it took them nearly 2 weeks to diagnose it b/c she was a preemie. She had to have a central line put in b/c she nearly died of dehydration at 7 weeks of age. Now she is doing fine but b/c of being a preemie and b/c of her setbacks at such an early age, she has had to overcome some obstacles. She started Soonerstart at 5 mos. of age and is still active in it although she is about get graduated out!

    Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself to all you other Okies out there. :smile:
