20 days here, and feeling a little frustrated.
DS is still in the NICU. He's starting to turn the corner, taking full feeds more regularly now by bottle and breast, relying less on the NG tube. We had a really good day on Wednesday, thought "this is it! Home stretch!" Doctor was contemplating removing the NG tube, and then poor LO completely pooped out Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Back to square one.
I feel like I've been hit with every pre and post partum complication in the book (exaggerating quite a bit here). Placental abruption, pre-term labor/hospital stay, small placenta, low amniotic fluid, short umbilical cord, restricted blood-flow through the cord, emergency C-section...
And now I have high blood pressure and mastitis on top of everything else.
This means he'll be an easy baby, right? :
