Re : Post partum infection

<t>Thanks everyone.<br/> This morning they changed the antibiotics I was on so I don't know when I'll be going home. Last night it started all over again, fever, chills, pain etc. Today the Dr. said the culture grew out group A strep. I still have no idea what that means. I thought that was what gav...

Post partum infection

<t>Has anyone had a uterine infection post partum? I updated my blog for all the details. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen. I'm starting to think I am just the unluckiest person alive.<br/> I got nothing for Christmas but an infection. Oh joy. Do you think they can just sedate...

Re : Preemie Nipples

<t>Pumping sucks, both figuratively and literally.<br/> With each of my babies, they did different things. Nipple confusion is real but it seemed to be worse in my older baby (35 weeks) than my younger babies. If you decide to breastfeed, just make sure they allow you to do that first and you get a ...

Could use some prayers

<t>I've updated on my myspace page but I thought I'd come straight here and ask for some prayers. We found out today that Ivee has a grade 3 head bleed. I'm pretty scared and have been crying all night. Please say a little prayer for her that everything will be ok and that no damage has been done. T...

Re : What would you have liked to have in the NICU?

<t>Snacks or food gift cards. Even those little snack size chips are great. We have a parents lounge we can go to to take a break but there is never anything to eat. Another mom dropped off some brown paper bags with chips, juice and little chocolates in it. It was really nice to have a snack when I...

Re : new here. 21 weeks and 2 protein

<t>If they really think you will need to be delivered early, you might want to ask about the betemethesone shots to help mature the lungs. I had a baby at 32 weeks who did really well. She stayed in the NICU just 2 weeks and had no real complications, just needed to learn to eat and breath at the sa...

If you want to be added as a friend or just read her updates, please do. We'd love any comments or well wishes as well.<br/> <URL url="http://www.myspace.com/6mir...

Re : anyone pump for a micro preemie?

<t>Thanks everyone. Things are much better, not up to where I want but tons better. I finally started to get a little something around 4 days. That's the same time they began feeds so I'm glad I at least had something. I've been pumping around the clock and have only been getting 1oz total from both...
