Erin -

I can't imagine how hard this is for you. I'm sorry that you had your babies so early, but it sounds like they are doing remarkably well.

PT&P's are being sent your way to give you and the babies the strength that you need to get through.

Congratulations on the birth of your babies. I'm so sorry that have arrived so early. I have no NICU experience, but I can only imagine how tough this must be. Hugs to you and I'm sending some prayers and positive thoughts their way.

Congrats on your boys! My prayers to you and the twins to give you strength, hope, and faith to get you through.

My twins were in the NICU for 26 days. I saw many other preemies there born in the 20's weeks. It can be emotionally draining, esp at first when you are still in shock with an early birth, then later when you really don't know what all the tests, equipment are for. I would recommend a great book "Preemies: a guide for parents of premature babies" (linden is the author). It explains EVERYTHING, and you know what to expect now and later.

I went through a lot of guilt and blame when they were born. Just know it isn't your fault and you will get through it.

email through my profile if you want to talk.
