I'm new here. Our beautiful little boy was born on June 28th at 26w4d. It was completely unexpected; we'd had a very healthy pregnancy, but it turns out my placenta was infected (GBS) and I went into labour very early.
Our little guy is a fighter. He's on CPAP and taking my milk well through a feeding tube. He's on lots of antibiotics for the infection, but he's responding well to the treatments. It's been really hard on us, especially as the adrenaline of the first week wears off. I think today I just realized the length of the road ahead. I hate not having him close to me all the time, and it's so hard to not be able to touch him and be with him, except during certain times, even though I know that's what's best for him right now.
I really would love to hear from people who are going through or have been through similar situations. It's going to be a long journey and it would be great to have companions on this road.
