    My daughter was born 2 weeks ago, five and a half weeks premature. She was in scbu for ren days to help her feed - didn't need any support for anything else. Anyway she is now home and doing great but I can't help worrying that she is going to get sick or stop breathing or some other terrible thing is going to happen. We bought an Angelcare movement sensor which I thought would reassure me but it went off last night for apparently no good reason and i have felt really panicky ever since. I guess i am just wondering if anyone else has been through this and if there is anything i can do to make myself feel a bit less anxious?! Thank you ladies x

    Ive not had a baby in special care but I have been a parent for a long time and I can tell you, you never stop worrying, the day you become a mommy is the day you worry for the rest of your life :flower:
    It's the best job in world but the most stressful :hugs:

    Thank you ladies. I think I am just finding it quite overwhelming - I wasn't expecting to have my baby yer! And although its amazing she is here and I wouldn't change anything, I can't help feeling like I didn't have time to mentally prepare. J know that sounds crazy! And i know that you can never completely prepare but it just feels like it has all happened so quickly. Anyway thank you! X

    Our baby was born a month early and also spent ten days in the NICU for breathing problems. Her oxygen levels kept dropping and she was on a CPAP machine, and diagnosed with pneumonia. I was a nervous wreck when we came home. but, I have her sleeping in a bassinet beside me in the bedroom which helps so I can keep peeking at her through the night. I'm sure you will never stop worrying, but I'm sure you will start feeling more comfortable soon :hugs:
