My son was born exactly a week from today while I was 28weeks pregnant he was 3 pounds even and 15inches long, he is in NICU now due to the fact hes a preemie. He has no known health problems and is up to eating 8.4cc breastmilk, he is very active and feisty with the nurses. The only assistance he has is a BCPAP, a feeding tube and a wire going through his umbilical cord and caffeine given to him for his AB spells he seems to have after his feedings when he burps. He is soon to get the umbilical cord wire removed and a ivy put in sometime this week. He loves stretching and makes squeaky noises either when hes awake or sleeping. Although the doctors have found nothing wrong with I am constantly worried about him every minute of the day. I've woken up every night looking for him since he's been born. I'll call the hospital at least twice a day to check up on him or ill have his father call for me. I've broken down just because I miss him. I know I am not the only young mom to have a preemie but, I would like some feedback on how to cope with the separation anxiety.
