I've had to do hospital bedrest before and it is hard, but I can tell how strong you are from your posts! You can do this and little Michael will hang in there! Praying for you both!

Also, all of my kids were born early. My first son was born at 34 weeks with no steroid shots for his lungs. I was told that white males do poorly when born prematurely and to expect him to be in the NICU for at least a couple of weeks. He came into the world screaming, yelling, and completely pink. He came home with me 2 days letter and never went to the NICU. My second son was born at 36 weeks, was completely healthy, and came home from the hospital when I did. My DD was born at 35 weeks, had steroid shots for her lungs and was still in the NICU for 15 days. Those patterns for preemies aren't always true! Granted, your little guy isn't into 34+ weeks but still, the point is that both of my preemie sons did better than my daughter!
