We had our first baby at the end of february - emergency c-section as I had pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome...was very traumatic to be told that the only way to cure the problem was to deliver our baby...but he was delivered at 31 weeks and is doing well. He is putting on weight slowly and is breathing for himself...we have had to buy him special nappies and clothes!
Hoping he will be home some...they said he might be able to come home once he reaches a certain weight, can maintain his temp and can feed from me!
Love to all the mummies who have ealry babies x x
