I'm praying your babe is still safe in her cozy womb!
I've been fostering/adopt preemies for two years now, and have a special needs bio daughter.
Expect intabation, there will probably be times when it feels like a roller coaster. Possible NEC, PDA, Brain hemmorage, global developmental delay, ect.
Pump like crazy (you probably know that!), bond however you can, and advocate for your child- don't let the nurses/therapist/doctors assume you don't know your child.
Current foster daughter was a 26weeker. 1lb 8oz with 6 and 7 APGAR. Addicted to cocaine.
I've always agreed that outcomes typically follow the racial/gender lines working in the NICU... "wimpy white boys" and so forth.
That said, our FD is AA and 16 months old and still on oxygen and is solely g-tube dependant. Her first year was always 1 step forward and 2 back. But looking back- despite the mini-hosptal that she is bound to she has lived a very full happy, busy time. She's had 12 (count 'em, 12!!) CT scans with NO brain damage. We have high hopes for her once the BPD settles down.
My best advice is advocate for your child to be in a NICU that is in the forefront for your region/state and has follow-up clinics. I can't tell you how much it helps for a ex-micro to have continuity in care by a dr who has seen them from the start.
In my region, I try to avoid PEDIATRIX owned NICU's like the plague. Horrible clincal management and discharge services, kids get miss services all the time.
