Breathe, Baby, Breathe: Jacob’s Birth Story #FirstMoments by Nicole Etolen | May 6, 2013 | Health & Beauty | 17 comments Pinterest Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Reddit Email Pinterest Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Reddit Email 17 Comments Chelsea on May 6, 2013 at 11:31 am Thanks for sharing. I never have had a premie, but had those same scary breath baby moments when my forst son was born. Scary! Reply Nicole Etolen on May 6, 2013 at 11:43 am It’s terrifying, isn’t it? Even though it felt like an eternity, my mom (who was in the room) said it was really only a few seconds. Everything is amplified when you’re scared though! Reply Jennifer Clay on May 6, 2013 at 11:47 am Wow, a scary birth! I about died when I read that his little arm broke! That had to be awful! I am so glad that your baby boy made it and is doing great now! Reply Nicole Etolen on May 6, 2013 at 7:24 pm Thankfully, baby bones heal quickly! He always hated being swaddled after that, though, because his arm was held down for three weeks. You’d never know now what he went through though! Reply ValeviL on May 6, 2013 at 12:53 pm what a terrible experience =( Reply Jenn @therebelchick on May 6, 2013 at 12:58 pm I can’t even imagine what those first few days must have been like for you! I am so happy that he did well and ended up being so healthy! My daughter has a friend who was born very premature and to this day, she is only about 4’6″! Reply Nicole Etolen on May 6, 2013 at 7:28 pm They were definitely scary days! I’m glad your daughter’s friend is ok! My son is slightly short for his age. He just on the low side of average. But I’m short too, so that may also be genetics. Reply Krystle Kouture (Baking Beauty) on May 6, 2013 at 1:16 pm Thank you for sharing his story! Glad to see he is happy and healthy now.

I have witnessed the pain and uncertainty that comes with a premature birth and I am thankful that Jacob pulled through. He looks wonderfully happy. Thank you for sharing.
