Richard

34

Richie was the first of my three premature babies. My pregnancy was pretty normal after suffering two miscarriages before finally conceiving him. At my 24-week routine ultrasound, the tech found that my crevice was shortening. I was sent to triage and was eventually set home after receiving the steroid shot for his lung development. My OB put me on modified bedrest, but with my oldest in school full time I was able to really do very little to keep him cooking as long as I could.

After 10 long weeks, my water broke in the middle of the night and our little Richie was born at 34 weeks on Easter Sunday April 20, 2014 weighing 5 pounds 13 ounces. He spent 9 days in the NICU at Saint Mary's Medical center. Richie came home on an apnea monitor for 6 weeks, but other than that minor issue he is in percent health. He is now an almost 5-year-old boy who is rocking pre-K.
