This is for those who have endured or are currently enduring the pain of seeing your little one fight for their life in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) whether it’s for 7 days or 7 months. Keep fighting, you’re way stronger then you think you are, and you WILL make it through even the toughest storm. • September is #NICUAwarenessMonth and I am BEYOND blessed to be able to witness my #MicroPreemie come full circle. June 1, 2017 making it a year being home after our 6 month stay in the #NICU actually 166 days to be EXACT! • A baby like mine, who was born 23 weeks, 4 days early weighing 1lb 2.3oz now has a chance to survive due to medical science. • They advised us that Kassidy had about an 80% chance of death or if not death she would be severely disabled. • They advised us that she had a 50% chance of survival no matter how hard they worked to save her. • Then they asked us what we wanted to do. Was the dream of having a healthy baby too much to hope for or the cost of saving her too high? - But through all the tears, through all the exhaustionnnnnnnnn, GOD came through and DELIVERED over and over and over and over again. I called out to him and he answered working through the hands our amazing nurses and doctors. He gave Kassidy the strength she needed to overcome. He proved my faith and removed doubt and fear. I cannot express how grateful I am for our extended family at Abington Memorial Hospital. ❤️ • • • #nicuawarenessmonth #nationaldaughterday #newmom #micropreemie #preemie #preemiestrong #23weekspregnant #23weeker #ourlittlepreemie #marchofdimes #PreemieDad #preemieMom #fightforlife #kassidyrae #abingtonmemorialhospital #nicunurses

• NICU awareness month • Every mother dreams of having a healthy baby alongside a perfect birth. No one would imagine being told we have to get the baby out, your lives are at risk. At 32 weeks pregnant I was terrified for my babys life. Having been diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and severe HELLPS the only cure is the baby being born. Being induced at midnight then being woken up at 6am saying I need an emergency C-section I was not healthy enough to wait.. scared me even more. I was the healthiest I'd ever been during my pregnancy but these conditions over powered that. Knowing not only your babies but your life is at stake I went in the operating room praying and with a positive mind. Little Liam was born. Healthy, strong, and adorable. It was a miracle. He was such a fighter, and so was I! After a scary night fighting for my own life, god had big plans for us!!! I never imagined once my baby was born we'd be Spending the next 5 weeks in the NICU watching my baby inside an incubator, transitioning to a crib, having an NG tube down his nose, hooked up to machines. learning to change a diaper in an incubator to being thrilled when he could fit in preemie onesies to celebrating his biggest feeds without the tube was an exciting/nerve racking experience! Preemie babies and their parents are true warriors and fighters! Lots of love to anyone who has had to spend even one hour in the NICU 💕 #preemiestrong #nicuawarenessmonth #nicugrad #almost5months #blessed #preemiepower #ourlittlepreemie

So Sully got to come home....for less than 5 hours on Saturday 😔 I usually keep an upbeat tone on these and punctuate with cute emojis to keep it light hearted, but we are feeling run down right now. My poor little guy started letting us know he wasn't ready before we were discharged, but I ignored the mommy instincts, telling myself I was just nervous about him coming home. Within hours of getting home, he needed more oxygen, wouldn't wake up to eat, and his temperature started getting lower. I know logically it is not my fault, but emotionally it still feels like failure that he ended up back in the hospital. And I think it's OK and natural to feel that way. He just needs more time to get over the virus he caught and more oxygen than I can give him safely at home. And we just need time to process it. I am just happy he was able to go back to the NICU where he has #teamsully to look after him. They usually get readmitted to the PICU. See, I'm ok, still looking for rainbows⛈🌈 Thinking about you while you're at work @mpjennings16 💜 #preemie #preemiebaby #25weeker #fightlikeapreemie #micropreemie #preemiepower #preemiestrong #nicu #nicumom #nicudad #niculife #nicubaby #baby #babyboy #namc #nicuawarenessmonth

It’s absolutely mad to think that today is my due date and we’ve actually been lucky enough to have our miracle man for six weeks exactly. He’s been home with us now for almost a month! It has been really tough at times but us Fishers / Kettleboroughs are fighters and having him home and healthy has been absolutely amazing - long may that continue 😍💙😘🎉 #love #henryjohnwilliamfisher #son #fisherfamily #duedate #sixweeks #preemie #preemiestrong #preemiepower #beautifulboy #prematurebabies #lister #family

When I was 16 weeks pregnant, I was finishing up my respiratory therapy program and going through a change in my health insurance. I got so busy that I didn't get to go see any obgyn after my 16 weeks. I always felt a constant low pressure in my pelvic area. Most women said it was normal, I felt different. It was all the time and I couldn't jog or work out. I kept thinking it was just me being weak. On Sept 24th, I was feeling super tired and left school early to see my new obgyn . I started having cramps at home as I got ready. Suddenly I felt the urge to use the restroom. As I'm sitting in the toilet and started pushing, I saw the water bag protruding out. It didn't dawn on me that I was in active labor. I gathered my composure, screamed and told John to call 911. He saw the bag coming out and couldn't believe what was going on. I ran into the living room and layed down on my bag hoping the bag would not rupture and just go back in, which it did. Ambulance came and rushed me to the ER. It was too late for them to give me steroids to help with the baby's lungs. I think about 30 mins in I couldn't hold it in any longer so I pushed and Camden plopped out. He wasn't making a sound. They rushed him to the warmer to breathe for him. Camden was only 1lb 14oz and 13 inches tall. They put a tube in his throat and gave him 2 rounds of surfactant to help mature the lungs. He's waiting to be airlifted to Loma Linda Children's Hospital in Loma Linda. That night I had to stay back at the hospital to be monitored. My cried the whole night as i lay there listening to all the new mommies and their crying babies next to them. I was also mad that it was happening to me but it also made me realize that I need to get better because my son needs me. This image was the first time I got to hold him after he was settled in the NICU. I heart was complete and I knew he was meant to be mine. #preemiestrong #teamcamden #25weeker #4yrsold

radosc_bycia_rodzicem_

💕NASZE HISTORIE💕👪 - wspomnienia Mijał 4 miesiąc pobytu Marianki w szptalu, ja byłam na skraju załamania i wytrzymałości. Na szczęście katar jak i cała infekcja minął... Każdego dnia czekałam na informację, że wychodzimy. Tylko te problemy brzuszkowe i naczyniak nie pozwalały mi odetchnąć. Pewnego dnia przyszła na kolejną konsultację Pani doktor z DSK - chirurg, specjalista od naczyniakow. Marianka była pod Jej opieką od początku pojawienia się naczyniaka. Stwierdziła, że pomoże jedynie lek... który z racji działania na naczynia krwionośne i serce musi być podany w szpitalu. A juz myslalam, ze za dzien czy dwa wrocimy rwzem do domu. Kiedy zapytałam czy podanue leku opizni wyjście dowiedziałam się od neonatologow, że lepiej to zrobić teraz niż potem kłaść się na oddział w innym szpitalu. Byłam załamana i gotowa odpuścić ten lek... Tak, przez chwilę o tym pomyślałam. Ale potem rozsądek wziął górę nad rozchwianymi emocjami. Wiedzialam, że mają racje... ale tak bardzo chciałam mieć Marianke już w domu 😢 Któregoś dnia kolejny cios... lekarka prowadząca powiedziała, że z powodu tych ulewan, problemów z kupa i przede wszystkim perforacji jelita (7 doba życia) poprosiła o konsultacje profesora - ordynatora oddziału w Szpitalu Dziecięcym - specjalisty gastrologa. Nie chciała nic przegapić i fundowac nam powrotu za kilka dni lub tygodni do szpitala. Przyjęłam to że spokojem. Jednak kiedy profesor przyszedł na konsultacje od razu zaproponował przyjęcie Mrianki na swój oddział z pełną diagnoza. Bal się czy nie są to zrosty... wolne łóżko miał mieć za 4-5 dni. Obiecywał, że jeśli będzie ok. wypuści nas po 5 dniach. Trzymałam wtedy Manie na rękach, obok stała Pani Kasia rehabilitantka... poprosiłam aby wzięła idę mnie Marianke bo zrobiło mi się słabo... Byłam zrozpaczona... przeniesienie, kontrast, zrosty? Nie wierzyłam, że to tylko 5 dni... wydawało mi się po raz kolejny, że nie zabiorę córeczki nigdy do domu. Zadzwoniłam do Tomka i płakałam w słuchawkę... nie bardzo pamiętam ten moment... ktoś mnie pocieszal na tym korytarzu, chyba któraś z położnych lub lekarka. Nie pamiętam... tylko ten straszny strach... Dopiero w domu pomyślałam, że będę (dalej w kom)

I wasn’t sure I should include this in my #MomLifeMonday posts.. but the truth is, this is a huge part of my #momlife! . . . I am a mom, but I am also a student! And as hard as it’s been juggling the two, I have finally found a great balance (and amazingly understanding professors!). . . . . I am currently studying for my Masters in Professional Education with a focus on teaching students with exceptionalities. This is something I am very passionate about and where I hope to find a #career in the future. . . . . When the babies got sick last year, I just couldn’t keep up. I explained to one of my professors how badly I was struggling and she suggested I take a parental leave. You see, my program is very competitive, they only let in 20 students a year, so the school has a policy about starting and staying in the program. They do of course make some exceptions; and being a stressed out, exhausted, twin mama was one of them! . . . After a 9 month break, I jumped back into it earlier this month and I am loving all the learning and growing I’m already doing in my courses. I’ve found the perfect balance to ensure I’m completing all my assignments on time and have the full support of my professors should I need extra time. . . . Tell me, what’s something interesting about your mom life? . . . #twinmama #pregnantwithtwins #twins #twinlife #momofmultiples #MoM #firsttimemom #student #studentlife #masters #family #balance #hellpsyndrome #parentsofmultiples #lifeafternicu #ex31weeker #preemiestrong #outoftheordinary #foreverlearning #careerstudent

Good morning friends! I wanted to dedicate today to my little miracle, Camden James Etheridge. Today he turns 4 years old. Unlike most kids his age, he came out to this world battling for his life since he took his first breath. As most of you have known, Camden was born a micropreemie at only 25weeks gestation. His journey was nothing short of a miracle and therefore I want to spend today posting 48(48 months in 4 years) images or videos of him since he was born to tell you his story. His story will hopefully raise some awareness about prematurity and the complications that is associated with it. #teamCamden #preemiestrong #25weeker

Isn’t she just adorable? I could be a little biased but she does look pretty adorable with her own little camera! Momma just had to do this little photo session because my little gal hit one month this weekend and is now 38 weeks old!!! These last two weeks at home have been tiring yet full of cuddles and kisses. My heart is full of love for my little #miraclebaby ❤️ she’s still so tiny, I feel like I have to be extra gentle but let me tell you she is one strong 💪🏼 baby!! This long road is slowly becoming a distant memory because I look at her and all I can do is smile, give her infinite kisses and give thanks she is in my arms 🙏🏼 we are still working on nursing, 🤱🏽let me tell you that every drop 🍼 I get is solid gold for my little babe and I am so thankful and grateful for the donor breast milk she received while in the NICU. All those selfless mommas are rockstars in my book 🙌🏻. I wish more people were selfless like them because these little ones need it!! Sleep has become a figment of my imagination 😩💤......let me tell you I am one tired momma but she is worth every sleepless minute and I am trying to captured every moment of her sweetness!! 💖 #godisgood #thankful #preemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #pregnancyjourney #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #ocphotographer #socalphotographer #sotherncalifornia #newbornphotography #portraitphotography #chasinglight #radlovestories #inlove #candidchildhood #letthembelittle #momswithcameras #photogmom #bossmom #flashesofdelight #futurephotographer #futureassistant #lovewhatyoudo

Today’s pictures were taken at our 3 month mark in the NICU. Cam looked like an old man with his hairdo 👴🏻 These were some of the last pictures I have of Charlotte in the Eeyore pod. 🙁 She was moved to the step down unit that afternoon. It was a super rough transition for me. I was glad Charlotte was getting closer to going home, but I hated having the twins separated. The Eeyore pod had been our home for 3 months; it was weird being in a new environment and hard splitting my time between two places. #nicuawarnessmonth #nicu #nicudad #nicumom #nicugrad #nicunurse #preemie #preemiebaby #miraclebabies #micropreemie #25weeker #preemiepower #preemiestrong #twins #peasandcarrotspeterman

brycesnicuproject

In honor of NICU Awareness Month, we continue to share our founders journey. 💙 “At this point we were so happy because BIG things had been happening. Bryce was able to get off of his EEG monitor so no more wires on his head (though he had marks on his head for months after due to them), they also started to ease up on how sedated they were keeping him so he started waking up more. Being able to see his eyes was so wonderful. Now that we knew his brain was doing ok we didn’t have to be quiet around his bed or refrain from touching him anymore which was beyond incredible! He was also taken off of his oscillator (which is a more advanced ventilator. It not only gave him oxygen but it pumped nitric oxide into his body as well to help keep his air wags open.) This video breaks my heart though every time I see it. Because Bryce was intubated he physically couldn’t make any noise. Imagine watching your baby cry but not being able to vocalize it 💔😭 I’ll never forget the first time we did hear him cry, it was a very hoarse cry due to being intubated but it was beautiful! Most parents hate hearing their baby’s cry but I honestly couldn’t wait. Just to hear a sound come from him, it’s hard to explain how big of a thing that was.”

It’s been 6 months to the minute since we got the most terrifying news. I was 5 cm dilated, Wesley was coming and they couldn’t stop him, and we were at a hospital that wouldn’t be able to help me or the baby. Terrified was an understatement. I was in active labor and needed to be immediately transported by ambulance to another hospital with a NICU (lovely photo of me with a double chin here before we departed). He came 2 hours later. The whole pregnancy we were told this was a risk, but I had just gone to the OB the day before and was told everything looked great and we’d go to 39 weeks. Thank goodness my mom made me go to the hospital and stop pacing while watching My Lottery Dream Home. I had no clue I was in labor... 🤦🏻‍♀️ . . . Wow! 6 months since Wes decided to make his grand entrance (6m pics to come once the weather clears up!). He’s broken down every obstacle put in his way and defied many of the prognosis the doctors and specialist have given us. He’s a miracle warrior baby and has fought since conception. We shouldn’t have gotten pregnant, but we did. He was determined. We should’ve lost him when my appendix ruptured and was on the borderline of sepsis, but he hung in there for 5 more weeks. He was determined. He should be so much further behind because he was born 9 weeks early but he’s not. He’s determined. . . . He’s not our baby, he’s God’s first. And God has been beyond faithful in giving him - and us - the strength to persevere. God is so so good. He’s laying out miracles in our lives, and my prayer is that Wesley can be the proof of God’s promise to those who don’t believe. Call me crazy, but even doctors are in disbelief of the mountains this boy has climbed. Our God is the God of the hills and valleys in our lives. We owe it all to Him. ❤️🙌🏼 . . . #6months #4adjusted #31weeker #preemie #preemiepower #preemiestrong #preemiemom #nicu #nicuawarenessmonth #babymedel2018 #godisgood #godisfaithful #godsplan #godspromise

Many preemies have to receive physical therapy, along with speech/feeding and occupational therapies following their nicu stay and beyond. Physical therapy helps improve a preemies gross motor skills and ways to move their bodies. Caleb did physical therapy twice a week, sometimes three times a week, until he was 3 years old. He loved his time with his fav therapist @3_gingers_, and the therapy helped him tremendously! He didn’t know what to touch and explore first on this activity table! #CalebJordan #25Weeker #Micropreemie #NicuMiracle #NicuAwarenessMonth #MemoryLaneMonday

Each year on September 23rd, I am caught off-guard by the floodgate of emotions this day brings. This day will forever be the worst and the best day of my life. This day was scarier than my worst nightmare, yet my heart grasps on to every vivid horrifying memory because without them our miracle story falls flat. I must allow myself to re-experience the lows because it leaves me in awe of the highs.... the gift. One emotion concurs all and that is, grateful. I am grateful to God for hearing my heart, for being the God of miracles, grateful to the couple who donated their frozen embryos to us, grateful to my husband for being my rock, grateful to the amazing NICU staff who cared for our babies, and I am grateful to John and Hollie for the sacrifice they made to make us parents. September 23rd was the day I became a mom. Motherhood wasn’t something that happened to me, it was a gift given to me. Today and everyday, I am forever thankful. . . . . . . . #thankful #grateful #micropreemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #embryoadoption #surrogate #surrogacy #blessedbyasurrogate #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #nicumom #twins #boygirltwins #miracle #miraclebaby #23weeker #24weeker #preemiesupportandawareness #twinmom #miracleshappen #gtube #babyglasses #feedingtube #infertility #crohnsdisease #crohns #godofmiracles

Every year, I ride a roller coaster of emotions this week leading up to the twins birthday. Remembering our birth story is scary, stressful, remarkable, and life changing all at the same time. I’ve been sharing our birth story with all of you one day at a time in stories and highlights because, honestly... it is just too overwhelming for me to share all in one day. I hope it touches you as much as it has blessed us. Tomorrow these twins turn THREE! I’m right here looking at them and it’s still hard for me to believe that they are mine. Anyone else have a preemie birth story? In what gestation was your baby born? . . . . . . . #micropreemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #embryoadoption #embryodonation #embryo #surrogate #surrogacy #blessedbyasurrogate #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #nicumom #twins #boygirltwins #miracle #miraclebaby #23weeker #24weeker #preemiesupportandawareness #twinmom #miracleshappen #gtube #babyglasses #feedingtube #infertility #crohnsdisease #crohns #godofmiracles.

When these two were born at 23.6 weeks gestation, clothing was the last thing anyone was thinking about. Their eyes were fused shut and their skin was not yet developed so their naked bodies needed to rest in incubators with humidity. Their tiny bodies were covered with tubes and wires; doctors and nurses needed quick easy access to treat them. But as the weeks went on, I began to think about clothing. Every mother dreams about that first outfit baby will wear, it’s in our nature. Born just over 1 pound each, I knew we were a long ways away from preemie sizes clothing. With a little research I found @perfectlypreemie with hospital friendly clothing for little ones as small as one pound. Dressing them for the very first time brought on this transformational feeling of a “normal” mom moment in the midst of a very abnormal environment. The clothing helped them to look more like babies and less like fetuses. Taking and sharing photos became easier. @perfectlypreemie is celebrating their 25th anniversary and sharing a discount code for 20% off your purchase using code ANNIVERSARY20. When did your little one get to wear clothing for the first time? . . . . . . . #micropreemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #embryoadoption #embryodonation #embryo #surrogate #surrogacy #blessedbyasurrogate #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #nicumom #twins #boygirltwins #miracle #miraclebaby #23weeker #24weeker #preemiesupportandawareness #twinmom #miracleshappen #gtube #babyglasses #feedingtube #infertility #crohnsdisease #crohns #godofmiracles.

Four years ago today, my best friend Hollie and I went out for tacos and margaritas, as we still do today. That was the night she told me that she wanted to carry my babies inside her and make me a mommy. We cried a lot that night and my life has never been the same. . . . . . . . #micropreemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #embryoadoption #embryodonation #embryo #surrogate #surrogacy #blessedbyasurrogate #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #nicumom #twins #boygirltwins #miracle #miraclebaby #23weeker #24weeker #preemiesupportandawareness #twinmom #miracleshappen #gtube #babyglasses #feedingtube #infertility #crohnsdisease #crohns #godofmiracles.
