Welcome, Nikki!!! Glad to meet you! My name is Beth, mom to Jim who was a 27-weeker and is now a goofy 4-year-old. He came early because my water broke. I'm now pregnant with my second and hoping for a full-termer!

How is Kayla enjoying her first summer?

Hi Nikki!! I am new here too!! My daughter Jocelynn was also born 9 weeks early!! She was 3lbs 9oz and spent almost 4 weeks in the NICU. She was early due to my incompetent cervix. I also had a baby boy, Braeden who we lost at 23w6d, he spent 1 1/2 hrs with us.

Kayla is definitely enjoying her summer. We have had a lot of visitors and done our share of visiting as well. She is doing a whole lot of growing, she has quadrupled her birth weight! She just now figuring out how to play with her toys too. I'm just glad she moving along so well. Congrats on the LO on the way! How far along are you? I wish you a full term pregnancy as well

Hi Rebecca! I can't imagine having 7 preemies! Just the NICU experience alone frightens me. Congrats on the new addition! If you don't mind me asking, what is the reason for the premature births? I had a short cervix and then my water broke early. Just curious...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. That must have been very hard for you and your family. I also had an incompetent cervix (short cervix). Not fun at all!

Welcome Nikki my little guy is Declan, and he was born 10 weeks early and was 3lb. He's now an active (albeit small) 9.5 month old and is enjoying his first summer as well . Does Kayla like the water? We got a small baby pool for D and he LOVES to splash around. It helps with the nice hot summer days

Wow, she has grown so much!!! I'll be 28 weeks on Thursday, and I'm definitely hoping to go full-term this time too. They're keeping a close eye on my cervix but so far it's behaving itself.

I'm a Nikki too I had a 24 weeker that I lost, and a 26 weeker that's 19 months old right now. The doctors don't know why I can't keep a pregnancy full term.
