So, My preciouse little girl has been in the NICU since her birthday. She's going to be 15 weeks on Sunday, and I just wanna know how many othersa have had a long stay as well. I am hoping that she'll be home within the next 2 months, but I dunno...

Hi,

My son was in the hospital for 13months.  I know what you are going through, it is so hard to see your baby like that and feel so helpless.  Stay strong and be by her side and talk to her, she knows your there!

My daughter was in the NICU for a month...she was born 8 weeks early and thankfully she didn't have any set backs....so she got to go home earlier than expected...But the whole experience was hard!! Good luck stay strong and stay positive! I'm here for you if you need to talk.

Mar. 4, 2008 at 11:50 PM My little Devyn stayed for 2 months, Since she was born a day before him I can only immagine how hard it is to still have her in there, this experience I'm sure makes you so much stronger mama!  Since she was born what 3 months early? it is a miracle in itself that she has grown so much (from what I saw in your pictures!)  Pretty soon before you know it she will be in your arms and you'll never want to let her go. I know it feels like forever but once you get her it will all be worth it to see her doing so well! Just know you're not alone. If you're feeling down and need some support I'm here for ya!
