Krystal:  I’ve been a fan of your FB since you started talking about it on babycenter  I have a 29weeker, he spent 141 days in the NICU, who is almost 1, and on O2 and with a gtube. I’d love the “O2. . .not just for old people!” and “No really. . .I’m one!”

Trish Black:  I am a proud Mom of a preemie named Samantha, She was born at 30 weeks, 3.1 lbs and now is 5 months old but still on a apnea/heart monitor, reflux issues, getting stronger and bigger every day.  She was in the hospital for 6 weeks and I was in the hospital for 2 weeks.

Simply Silhouttes – http://www.facebook.com/SimplySilhouettes

Becky LaSalle:  Posted on Simply Silhouette!  Our sweet twin boys were born 6 weeks early! They just came home from the NICU and are doing well! I would LOVE to have a silhouette of their twin ultrasound picture!

Nap Nanny –http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nap-Nanny/84092968947

Morgan Porada:  I liked them and i loveee what you do! (lol) My water broke 15 weeks early in October and I had my twin boys at 25 weeks 2 days. Tanner was natural at 4:42 am at 1 lb 11 oz, and Christian was a c-section at 10:37 pm at 1 lb 13 oz. After 17 days, we lost Christian to kidney failure. It was by far the WORST day of my life. Tanner has had four surgeries (pda before he was even 3 pounds, two laser eye surgeries, and surgery to repair two massive hernias in his groin), and we’re currently on day 123 in the NICU. He’s been on every ventilator they have, and they’re currently talking about having a trach and feeding tube put in before he’s home (but there’s pretty much no freakin way I’m letting that happen). We still have NO idea when he’s going to be home… I’m hoping within a month but I thought that two months ago.

Jenni Jeske: Fanned her page and commented. My B/G twins are preemies born at 28 weeks. They spent 3 months in the NICU and I am so blessed to have them home. They are doing so well!

EllieAdorn $25 Gift Certificate – http://www.facebook.com/EllieAdorn

Alzbeta Volk:  … you’re probably getting sick of hearing about my preemie on each entry… but at 9 1/2 months (came at 32 weeks), Anni loves to tug, pull and chew as she falls asleep… so I would love to buy a necklace from EllieAdorn :).  

ChicBébé Boy/Girl Hat Giveaway – http://www.facebook.com/pages/ChicB%C3%A9b%C3%A9/146984665315790

Boy Hat:  Kristin Glab: So cute! I usually like to show off Peter’s hair when I photograph him, but these hats are definitely photo-worthy!  Peter is a former 27-weeker. Now 7 months old, he recently learned to roll over and grab toys. He’s very sociable and smiley. Getting him to stay still for photos is more difficult than coaxing a smile out of him. 

Girl Hat:  Andrea Silva: I am a fan of both sites.  My water broke at 18 weeks and my miracle girl came 5.5 weeks later at 23 weeks and 5 days.  My Eliahna (which means God has answered) weighed 1 pound 3.7 ounces.  We spent 117 days in the NICU and then another 15 days in CHOP in Philadelphia.  She had PDA surgery when she was under 3 pounds (and even before I held her) and had laser eye surgery while still in the NICU.  It was a full month before I was able to hold my miracle girl.  She came home on oxygen but is almost completely weaned off.  She also had to have a g-tube put in due to major reflux issue.

 Cat Mayhew:   I wanted to also tell you alittle bit about Parker. Parker has officially spent more time OUT of the hospital than in! He was born, not the smallest, at 34 weeks and while it looked like we were smoothe sailing out of the NICU, his father flipped and was stripped of his parental rights when P was 4 weeks old. Learning what it’s like to be a mom and a single mom to boot was not easy, especially when he was about 6 months old and started in on severe lung issues. Fast forward to a year ago when P had his first set of brochoscopies where we finally found a diagnosis. Parker has Primary Ciliary Dyskenesia which is a cousin to CF. Parker now breathes with the assistance of oxygen, a percussion vest, low dose steroid and is monitored via pulse ox. This year, since November, his lungs have collapsed 3 times and had 5 rounds of pneumonia. It’s a rough life dealing with a preemie alone, but to add a chronic lung disease on top of it makes it impossible to do anything! It’s one thing to have an infant on O2, but to have a toddler who needs o2 and his sats watched while out and about makes it hard. I wish this bag came with a pocket for a pulse ox that would fit him and have the o2 bag for me to wear while wearing him in my ergo. Every time I turn around it seems as though someone else is coming out with something awesome to make our lives easier.

REDD TREE Bracelet Giveaway (x2) http://www.etsy.com/shop/reddtree

Gratitude Bracelet:   Ashley –  I would have to say the gratitude is my absolute favorite. But they are all beautiful! My identical twin preemie girls are almost 1 and growing like weeds!

Watercolor Bracelet:  Ashley T – I really like the Pink Dandelion! I have b/g twins who our 29 weekers! They spent 11 weeks in the NICU. Now they are 5 months old!

Randi: My Abigail was born at 26 weeks on 9/27/10. She over came a lot of obstacles, at one point she stopped responding to treatments and we were told she may not make it. We were told the only thing left to do was to pray and wait for Abby’s decision. Thankfully, Abby decided to stay with us. She weighed 1lb 12ozs at birth, but was also born with a huge personality, which is why the nurses say she survived. She was nicknamed “crabby Abby” in the Nicu, and gave our neo such grief with her stubbornness, that he jokingly told us on our nicu graduation day that he never wanted to see her again 🙂
