My Intro...
Thu, 10-07-2010 - 10:46pm

Hi. My name is Jacqueline and my son, Leyton, was born at 30 weeks and 3 days. I was on hospital bed rest after a routine doctors visit when my blood pressures were high. Our goal was to be on bed rest until 35 weeks at that point we would deliver. I ended up only going a week before I had to have an emergency c-section. I had pre-eclampsia and HELLP Syndrome which lead to our early delivery. My son is expected to be in a level 3 NICU for 8-10 weeks and is doing well.

My son was also born at 30 3/7 weeks. He was 2lbs 9oz at birth. We ended up in the nicu for a full ten weeks. He is now nearly 21 months old and other than being a little behind with speech, he is wonderful. He is still a peanut but he is great.

Wishing you a speedy and easy time in the NICU,

How are you and Leyton doing?

My little guy, DJ, was born at 27wks and was 2lbs 8oz. He spent 71 long days in the NICU. He will be 23 months in a few days and a wild man. He is doing wonderful and we are very lucky he doesn't have any health issues.

You will have to post some photos when you get a chance and update us.
