Stressed after prem baby!

Don't know if anyone remembers me but I was on here a lot when pregnant with my first boy (isaac-15mths ) - i've just had my second at 31 weeks and he's doing really well, born at 2lbs 7oz and now at 6wks 5lb 2oz- but ...... i'm so anxious about him I can bearly sleep or eat, anyone been here ?? I have an amazingly supportive partner but sometimes the worry gets me down and I feel like the hospital owns my child !

Yeah - know what you mean about feeling the hospital owns your baby.

Mine was only in for 2 weeks thankfully, but being my 1st child I felt like I had to clear anything I wanted to do with them first.

In some ways it was good, as they showed me how to change & bath him and helped out with latching onto the breast - but at the same time, you couldn't just pick him up for a cuddle and had to leave him while you went home for the night which just felt totally wrong.

How much longer will your LO have to be in for?

Thanks guys , just get a bit low sometimes - be sooo much better when Jack is home
I know he's doing really well but there has been some scary times when he turned blue and the moniters now frighten me , it's also hard juggling a 15mth old who is @ the 'mummy' stage and getting to the hospital nearly 10miles away.
I feel guilty because I should just be grateful for being blessed with two lovely boys and all I seem to do is worry constantly

p.s WE don't know when Jack will be home but I think in the next week or so
