Hi. I have been lurking for awhile and thought I would introduce myself. My son was born at 33 weeks due to PPROM and PTL. He was 4lbs 3 oz. I had an emergency c section and DS spent 15 days in the nicu before coming home. He is now 5 1/2 months old (4 months adjusted) and doing great. I know that it could have been much worse and I am so thankful of how great he is doing, but I still carry a lot of guilt about the whole situation. I still think somehow I could have prevented it even though no reason was found. Look forward to getting to know all of you!
Re: intro-- 33 weeker
My 30-weeker was born due to pre-e and HELLP and I also had major guilt...among other feelings. It's normal to have a plethora of feelings! Let yourself feel whatever you need to in order to heal.
I felt the guilt, too. I still do sometimes. It will get better! Then you can feel guilty about other stuff Kids are nice like that.
I'm not new. I just hate The Bump.
