Four years ago today we left the NICU!
 
It was not the happy day but a day filled with tears. We said goodbye to our precious Madison Ann who was their for 5 months 2 days. She died from complications due to her prematurity, Pneumonia and a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Three months prior we took her identical twin sister home. She is now a happy healthy 4 1/2 year old. I am currently expecting a baby in July. I am just over 19 weeks pregnant hoping and praying for a healthy take home baby.

Hugs sweetie, I will be thinking of you and your daughters today!

Went today to the ob and things are great. Blood pressure was 118/82. Heartbeat was 140 and found right away. She scheduled my c-section for July 23 at 39 weeks and 2 days. Best news is diaphragm looks to be formed and stomach and heart in right spots. Another ultrasound on march 22. So hopefully can find out gender. I am currently just over 19 weeks.

That is great news!!! Are you hoping for boy or girl or don't care? How are you feeling emotionally? My post-preemie pregnancy was hard, but it was hardest right around when things went wrong in my pregnancy with Jim, and then again near the end as I went overdue. Something about being not in control of when the baby would come out, that was a PTSD trigger for me.

Fingers crossed that you have the most boring pregnancy ever!
