NICU Mom: Labor

It has been a while since my introductory post and I apologize for that. I unexpectedly had to be induced six weeks early due to my placenta not working properly. Not a lot of parents share details of their NICU and post NICU experiences, but I would like to.

I was admitted into the hospital in April. I had to receive two steroid injections that would help my little one develop his lungs before entering the world. The shots are not that bad honestly. The worst part was my husband making faces at how big the needle was! So pro-tip: Don’t watch your husband’s face! About 24 hours after my first dosage, I recieved my second and then started pitocin.
