My son was in NICU for 7 days. I know that it is a relatively short amount of time compared to others but it felt like a lifetime to me.

MY DD was in the NICU for 10 days. She was born 7 weeks early and weighed less than 4 lbs. although both of my boys were early by 4 and 5 weeks, both were over 5 lbs and neither were in the NICU. DS was hospitalized twice in the first month, however, for jaundice and FTT.

My second child was born at 32 weeks (she weighed 4lbs 9 ozs) she was in the NICU for 14 days.  My third has spina bifida, (she weighed 6 lbs) she was in the NICU for 11 days.  She was sent home for 4 days then had complications and  returned for 2 more surgeries, and another 3 weeks.  The hospital stays are so stressful.  I'm so greatful that they weren't any longer that they were.

My triplets were born at 23 weeks...

Hayden spent 16 weeks 1 day in the NICU, Blake spent 17 weeks 3 days in the NICU, and Olivia spent 19 weeks 2 days in the NICU.  So happy to have that part of our lives behind us and have 3 close to healthy kids.
