preemies??

Has anyone had experience with a preemie? If so how far along were you when you gave birth.  I had an emergency c section at 25w 5d

I was pregnant with twins. Lost my son at 23 weeks. Delivered my daughter at 27weeks. She'll be 2 in aug. We were in the NICU for 3 months. You can expect baby to get a couple blood transfusions and be on a ventilator for at least a month. Feeding tube for almost your whole stay. Any other questions just ask. :) everything will be fine. The alarms will scare the crap out of you every time. Dont worry. Nurse comes in every time it goes off. I found talking to my daughter when her heart rate started to drop helped her bring it back up

Preemies tend to be fighters. My daughter is just fine. You'll have to work with baby when you bring her/him home. Lots of therapy but so worth the effort. She's  further ahead than some kids her age.
