I had the baby

I had the baby!!! Leia Christine Ann was born @ 34 weeks 5 days weighing 6 lbs 4 oz!!!She was on a ventilator for two days and is now off and on room air.She is still in the isolette until her temp is okay.She is having a very hard time breast feeding but is taking breast milk from the bottle well.She is jaundiced so she started the lights tonight.I was released tonight so coming home without her is hard.We are about 45 min away so I'll come home at night and go to the hospital every morning and stay until after her 9 pm feeding.Well I'm off to bed just wanted to post.The nicu is such a different world.
