  • Keep myself busy, mostly by cleaning and cooking.

  • I've never been in your situation but I would imagine i'd be right next to her in the hospital and when I am not there, i'd be at home sleeping - good lucky mommy! that has to be very hard!

  • I have no idea. My son is leaving on Saturday to go to MO with my mother for 2 weeks to visit her. I don't know what I'm going to do. He is only 9 months old and this will be the first time since he was born that we will be apart.

  • I sat in the NICU all day every day and focused on pumping around the clock so that he could have breastmilk in his feeding tube. Just pumping for a premiee is enough to keep you busy, and ti feels good to know that you are doing something for your baby that no one else can do.
