Just wanted to post an update about what's been going on. Baby boy Mrse is here! I'll try to give the short version, and hopefully I'll be able to post some photos later on.
My water broke prematurely on Wednesday the 18th (32 wks 5 days). There were no serious issues with me or baby, but I had to stay in the hospital under careful monitoring. I was given antibiotics to prevent infection and steroids to help baby's lungs mature.
I went into labor on Saturday afternoon and by early Sunday morning I was ready to start pushing. Enter problem--baby had been head down but decided to turn breech sometime Saturday evening. Breech + preemie + no amniotic fluid = emergency c-section. Baby arrived May 22nd at 3:24 am. He was 3 lbs 15.5 oz and about 16.5 inches long (33wks 2 days).
I was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday. Baby is in the NICU and doing very well for being such a tiny little bugger. He has been breathing on his own the entire time and is now eating from a bottle like a champ. They are guessing that we will get to take him home in 3-4 weeks.
Still working on the name. We were a bit unprepared for this!
Congratulations! It sounds like your little man is quite the trooper and so are you. At least we know that he has plenty of diaper covers when he comes home. Rest up and keep up the good work. Hope you are doing well!
Congratulations, and I am glad all is well. I hope your baby will be home with you soon...
Now you have 3-4 weeks to get some preemie diapers made!!!
Congratulations, Stephanie. I, too am really happy to hear that your baby boy is doing well. Take care of yourself and be sure to wish the proud Papa well alsoPost a Comment
