I'm glad Julia had a good day :). Fingers crossed for many more of those. I hope you have more good days - and more days in bed if you need them - too.

((hugs))

I am ok. Hanging in there, I had a rough c-section, had to have a general so my husband wasn't in the operating room with me. It was not our ideal situation by any means. I have had mostly good days, but a few in bed all day days as well. Trying to stay strong for Julia, pumping, visiting, etc.

Thanks for asking, she's having a "good day" today...we like those. Had some good test results today so we'll take it.

Gentle welcome to Julia Faith. I hope she thrives in the nicu, and I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. Let us know what you need! I'm not sure how many other micropreemie moms we have around currently, but just holler and we can call on older members for you!

How are you?? Keep watch on yourself, even during this difficult time. How is Julia today? Is she stable enough for kangaroo care yet?

New Born Preemie

Postby kbielec » Fri Aug 10, 2012 09:29 am

Guess I'll be hanging out in this forum for a bit! We have had another preemie.

On Monday July 30th at 5:44pm Julia Faith entered this world at 26 weeks 2 days weighing 1 pound 3 ounces and 10 inches long. Julia had to be taken after a bad NST and doppler reading showing that the cord flow was reversed and she was no longer getting what she needed to be able to grow. Julia is in the NICU, doing ok every day, she's been stable...but we know we have a really long road ahead of us. We are praying every day that we'll bring our baby home safe and sound...
