A few years ago I shared my experience of giving birth to a preemie. I meant to continue the story with a part 2, but life happened. Well, most of the rest of the story goes like this. Anabelle arrived as perfect as can be, weighing in at a whopping 3lbs 13oz. Other than the need to gain weight, she had to learn to maintain her temperature. She had some trouble with keeping her temperature up, and this kept her in the NICU for 54 days.
