If she was born today…

Today I am 23 weeks 6 days. What would happen if our baby girl was born today?

The Tampa Bay Times just ran a 3-part special about Juniper, a baby girl born at this stage of gestation – what they call a micro preemie.

Even if you’re not a mom, or pregnant, it’s an amazing story that will make you cry.

Read it.

{I can’t help but see the pictures of little Juniper and think, “That’s what I have in my belly right now! A little human!” But I am also so very, very grateful for each day that she stays in my belly, and doesn’t have to fight for her life on the outside like Juniper.}

    My babies were eight weeks early. They only had to stay in the hospital for two weeks, but it was the longest two weeks of my life! Will go and read about the micro babies now. Can’t even imagine …

    Oh gosh, poor wee little thing. I hope she beats the odds and grows up strong & healthy. And I hope your little girl stays put inside you until spring. 🙂
