Re : New mom of a preemie

<t>Very sorry to hear about your daughter. Our twins were born at 32 weeks, but we lived in fear from week 28 on when diagnosed with PE. Don't let it break you heart when you look at her. Let it fill you with hope, because your daughter is still alive. You don't say how much she weighed at birth, bu...

Newborn preemie feeding. Timed interval or demand?

<t>With the arrival of my premature son to our home, my wife and I are struggling with the best way to feed him. <br/> <br/> The nurses suggested we continue with the timed interval feeding that the babies were receiving at the hospital. This means structured feeding at strict 3 hour intervals, and ...

Re : Whats next?

<t>Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. As a new dad of twin preemies myself born at 32 weeks, I can share some of your emotions. I also sympathize with the distance issue. Our twins were born in Thailand, and the rules here are substantially different than in the US. So while I am allowed...

Re : Expectant dad needs info about preeclampsia

<r>Another update. Everything is still OK for right now. Things are very stable. I am preparing to go into the hospital and fight to get her off terbutaline. Disagreeing with a doctor is considered a serious loss of face for the doctor in Thailand. It is not something to be undertaken lightly. It is...

Re : Expectant dad needs info about preeclampsia

<t>Thank you for the message of encouragement Caryn.<br/> <br/> Her blood pressure this morning was 140/90. It has been varying from a low of 130/85 to a high of 150/95, but 130/90 - 140/90 is the most common reading.<br/> <br/> Since the doctor also appears to support your conclusion regarding prot...

Re : Expectant dad needs info about preeclampsia

<t>Just thought I would post an update on this.<br/> <br/> Saw an ultrasound this morning of my son and daughter. In the past week, the boy only put on about 100 grams, but the girl shot up by a full 400 grams. She is now actually bigger than her brother. The girl is now 1.6 kg (3 lbs. 8 oz.) and th...
