November is prematurity awareness month and today is the March of Dimes National Fight for Preemies Day.
Please visit the March of Dimes at: http://www.marchofdimes.com/prematurity/index.asp
to find out how you can help.
You know, when I saw this:
I almost passed out. I had waited so long to be pregnant. I never could have imagined there were two in there. Never.
This was not what I imagined at all for my delivery. I never imagined my children would be born prematurely, my pregnancy would be counted in breaths that kept the babies "cooking longer" and that it would all end like this.
I looked to post more pictures of the boys in their incubators and couldn't find any more of them on the computer. Prematurity isn't always a pretty sight. Prematurity doesn't always happen to people with poor medical care, or lack of prenatal services. I am so glad the boys are doing so well, but I want everyone to know that today I fight for preemies. Mine, and those with preemies everywhere.
