Hi my name's Darcy,
My daughter Faith was born in August 2008. I was hospitalised at 30 weeks with pre-eclampsia (very sudden onset, I was at a routine doctors appt and all of a sudden she sent me to the hospital). They could not get my blood pressure down and at 30 weeks 6 days it started to copromise my vital organs (liver). So Faith Angelica was delivered by c-section at 31 weeks. She was born weighing 2lbs, 11ozs. She only needed help breathing for two days and then a day under the jaundice light. She quickly moved from level three care to level 2 care and soon we were just waiting for her to be big enough to be brought home. She stayed in the NICU for 7 weeks and arrived home two weeks before her due date.
She's a 14 month old ball of energy whose favorite words are" gabadabada and dabadabada" lol, it's not the same typing it out as it is to hear it. I keep trying to get her on film doing it but everytime I whip out the video camera she stops... the little stinker!
So that's our story, I'd love to hear yours!!
