Hi Good luck tomorrow. I had a 27 wkr and a 34 wkr. My 34 wkr spent about 2.5 wks in a special care nursery, not a high level NICU. He still was in an isolette with the lights and a CPAP for the 1st few days. Expect a few flashbacks to NICU days, but for the most part - like was mentioned - this is a different playing field. He did great and we were doing well with nursing (except that time around I was not producing). Here's hopin' for a easy time getting home for your new baby and family!

I have a formerly 3lb 3 oz 33 weeker making me crazy with all of his 3 year old craziness! He was small, but lungs etc... were ok. did you have the steroids? Parker spent a month in the NICU growing and learning to suck. You have a week on me, so that is even better. good luck.

Susan
I say you did pretty darn good! To go from a previous 26 weeker pregnancy to a 34 weeker this time - I'd call it a huge success! Still, I understand what you mean when you have a goal set for yourself of what you'd love to see happen, and things just don't quite work out; it can be disappointing. Even though this baby is early, I think this will be a completely different ball game than you were facing with Ben. Glad to hear that the doctors have been keeping a close eye on you. Hoping everything goes wonderfully today, and looking forward to an update whenever you get to it.

Susan, I'll be thinking good thoughts for you! Mine was a 31.5-weeker (who weighed an ounce more than Caryn's boy-LOL), so I can't tell you what to expect. Just know you and your baby girl will be in my prayers tomorrow.
