Just a note to all the mamas to be... I used to be like many of you and obsessed over having the perfect nursery, stroller, trying to settle on a name with husband before baby was born, and making a list of what I would need to bring to the hospital, etc.... Well, when my baby made a surprise entrance into the world at 29 weeks (I actually went in hospital at 24 weeks and was put on hospitalized bedrest for 4 weeks then was sent home even though I was never high risk and was having a great pregnancy)- I did not have a hospital bag packed, we did not have a name picked, we did not even order our furniture yet! And we managed just fine. When I look back at my first and second trimester insanity of fighting with husband over a name, looking at 10 different furniture stores, and crazily enough making my hospital bag checklist when i was only 8 weeks pregnant, I now realize that is was unnecessary stress. So enjoy your pregnancy, go with the flow and do not stress over every detail because I promise you it will all fall in place. This is coming from a Crazy Type A Personality Girl who has a list for everything.
Jack was born on 5.10.10 at 29 weeks.
My little preemie is doing great and came home on his 7.22.10 due date!
