A Preemie's Story - Baby James

We love to share preemie, NICU, & angel stories with our readers! Reading stories written by other NICU parents is therapeutic for current parents, past parents still coping, and also for the writer. It is a wonderful way to release emotions and to have your story continue to make a difference in the lives of others for years to come.

Baby James' Preemie Story:

"My pregnancy started out tough with James and only got worse as I got further along, all because I got high blood pressure at the start. They had it under control until about the 6th month. My doctor took me out of work and I ended up going into the hospital on July 8th; even then my blood pressure continued to get worse and preeclampsia started setting in. It was starting to affect my liver and kidneys so I ended up having to have an emergency c-section on July 19th - at just 26 weeks gestation weighing 1 pound 8 ounces. That was pretty scary, I must say. My blood pressure has returned to normal, and despite his early entry into this world, my little boy contuines to thrive everyday. I am so greatful to all the doctors and nurses in NICU that are still continuing to take care of him." ~Mom
