  • I went into premature labor in July 2009. My DD was due September 2009. I had a UTI. My DD had to spend one month in the NICU. The nurses there were really great and did every thing that they could to help me understand what was going on and letting me know what I could do to help while she was there. If you need to talk you can pm me or message me i am on here most evenings.

  • First anonymous, I'm sure her point is she'd like some other people who can relate to her to give her advice, or just simply someone who has been through what she has.

  • My 4th baby was born at 23 weeks. She weighed 1.5 lbs, 13 in. long & She spent 2 1/2 mos in the NICU, but at 3yrs old is very healthy and other than being small for her age, (she still wears 18 & 24 mos clothes) you would never know she was a preemie.
