The Good Vibe TribeThe Good Vibe Tribe2017-10-17Remember to love yourself, too. Treat yourself the same way you would treat a friend. Today, I want you to share one thing that you love about yourself. What is it?
The Good Vibe TribeThe Good Vibe Tribe2017-10-16Always remember that you’re doing your best. Don’t let anyone else bring you down. MotivationMondayhttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/22580244_198561214019900_7317502173523214336_n.jpg2017-10-16
http://instatbt.com/Place/highland-new-york/239402114Highland, New YorkThis is Flynn. He is my reason for living, and he is also my reason for creating this group. After I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia, Flynn was delivered via emergency c-section at 28 weeks, 1 day. He spent 49 days in the NICU and is now nearly eight months old. All babies deserve a positive environment in which to grow and thrive, but a baby who fought so hard to live requires it.
We are a tribe who realizes that you are a different person than you were before your preemie journey started. A traumatic event like this is bound to change you and we are here not to force you to turn back, but to encourage you to push forward and embrace life as it is now. Here, you will know nothing other than sensitivity, kindness, positivity, and support that you can hopefully bring into your real, every day life.
Feel free to share your story below or to join our private Facebook community by following the link above. Happy Sunday! ♥️
http://instatbt.com/Place/highland-new-york/239402114Highland, New YorkHappy Saturday, Good Vibe Tribe! Just remember: you’ve got this today and every day!
You are brave. You are strong. You are unstoppable. If anyone makes you feel otherwise, drown them out with those that radiate positivity and support you.
http://instatbt.com/Place/highland-new-york/239402114Highland, New YorkHappy Friday, everyone! Welcome to The Good Vibe Tribe! We are meant to be a group for preemie moms to encourage positivity and love, but our public pages on Facebook and Instagram are a knowledge-base and platform for support to anyone whose life has been touched by a preemie. Our babies are more than that though! Yes, they are children who entered this world early and with a story, but they are just little humans who happen to need a bit more love and a little extra support in order to succeed.
That’s what this is about: premature babies are different but they don’t need to be defined by their early arrival. There is nothing stopping them from having normal, incredible lives with a great support system. So, love each other, be kind, be sensitive, and let’s change the world.

Every Tiny ThingEvery Tiny Thing2017-10-09So in love with this adorable new mini-catalog, to highlight all of our NICU products. Thanks so much jessicastromphotography for the beautiful cover photography!! I'll be at the NANN convention to meet a bunch of new nicuRNs - can't wait to say hi to everyone in Rhode Island! Stop by booth 304 and get some sweet deals (and your very own mini-catalog!) https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/22352410_1480144592063741_2673020660996898816_n.jpg2017-10-09
Jezzika Guthridge McKeeJezzika Guthridge McKee2017-10-08Lately my husband has been feeling some type of way. I won't go into detail because its how he is. Im lucky enough to have a brother that is into the same things my husband is. Tyler may get bored if they play it to long, but the thing is... He plays it. I can count on 1 hand how many people actually hang out with my husband. What's worse... Is some people say they will hang out & don't. Its their loss they don't wanna hang out because my husband can be a really cool person. But because of those people that don't hang out with him, my husband is a different person & sometimes not a very good person. Why? Because those people he WANTS to hang out with are his family. Im sorry if this hurts anyone's feelings, but im not sorry that its the truth.
I know people get busy, but don't say your gonna do something then don't. Don't ignore phone calls or texts, just tell him you can't come. Be real. Not stupid.
BriannaChevyBriannaChevy2017-10-08This was about a week after my mom first got to hold me for the first time, my daddy was able to. They had to put the PIC line in my scalp because my veins everywhere else were too tiny. At this point I have had a brain ultrasound and it showed no signs of IVH(intraventricular hemorrhage) which is bleeding in the brain. This was a huge relief to my mommy and daddy. But I did have some blood in my stool so they stopped my breast milk feeds for a week. I was suspected of having NEC (Necrotizing Entercolitis) so the lack of food being but into my belly would hopefully treat this. Which it did. I still received all my nutrients through an IV. I was also put on a round of antibiotics to make sure I didn't have any infections. preemiepreemieprincessnicunicuawarenessmonthpreemiesupportandawarenesspreemiebabypreemiedadhttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/22344177_1371974266234187_8862509889667203072_n.jpg2017-10-08
Mandy and Elliot = MEMandy and Elliot = ME2017-10-07I know I haven't mentioned Elliots father nearly at all as we have been talking about things and I have wanted to respect him in this process. As we have been working through things, he came to the decision that he wanted to meet his son and I agreed.
Today was that day.
It is hard to explain the emotions I am feeling and working through, but. It was really good and there was a beauty in seeing him acknowledge Elliot as his son. He intends to come and see him more often which I pray is a good thing.
If you think of it, pray for me (and us) as we navigate this. My biggest desire I have for my son is that he will know our God and have a relationship with Him. Elliots father is not a believer as of right now, so...begging God and falling on my knees for wisdom in this area of our adventure. Trusting that this will be another portion of beauty that comes from my initial sin that brought this to be.
