My name is Heather.

I am 28 years old, I am married to my high-school sweetheart and we have one child a boy named Jack.

I work, and go to school, and my husband stays home with Jack.

This blog serves as a log of my personal life, while also functioning as a prematurity awareness platform on behalf of Jack.

Jack was born very premature, at just 28 weeks gestation. He weighed 2 lbs 14 oz., was 15 and 3/4 inches long, and spent 65 days in a level 3 neonatal intensive care unit. Today, he is a very happy and healthy two year old, weighing over 32 lbs!

*The cause of Jack’s preterm birth was never really determined. I did have mild preeclampsia, which may or may not have been a contributing factor in his early birth. An infection in my placenta was also suspected .
