My heart goes out to you because you can't take your little man home. I pray he takes the next few weeks to grow well and healthy for his sake and yours.

On the other hand, CONGRATS on your successful unmediated VBAC. I am hoping to achieve the same thing with this birth, so I know what it means to want one.

Thanks for sharing your birth story & congratulations on your unmedicated VBAC :) I really hope Joshua gets to come home soon- I can't even imagine how difficult that must be for you! But you sound really positive & I think that will make a big difference for you! Can't wait to see more pictures :)

Your story made me cry and hit home. My DS was aslo in NICU for 19 days and it is hard to leave him behind. It will get better and he will be home soon. Keep the pumping up it, it's so worth it. I'm go happy to hear he is doing well and so happy you.got your VBAC
