Just curious- what happened that he was delivered so early?  I am so paranoid about going into early labor with this one!



I developed severe pre-eclampsia.  I made it 3 days in the hospital before I got so sick that he needed to come out.  Don't worry.. your chances of having severe pre-e like me are super low.  I just got lucky. :P

Oh my goodness mama.  Congratulations & welcome Finley!  I hope he has a smooth journey through the NICU and that the next couple of months are as gentle on your family as they can be.

Congratulations. It sounds like little Fin is doing well, he's got a lot of people rooting for him to make it through the next few months without any complications. I wish you both health and happiness.

Wow, that's amazing! And totally shocked me to read you have your baby! Congratulations of course! How precious. I'd be a nervous wreck I think. You, however sound fabulous! I am so happy for health and hope for the both of you to continue with the most awesome success.

Holy cow, it must have been severe!! How frightening, glad everything is going good.  Finley actually looks like  a good size, not as small as I would have thought for having been born this early. And how wonderful that Fin is already off of oxygen, what a strong little baby!

Congratulations on the arrival of Finley, however unexpected the timing was! Hopefully time will fly by uneventfully. We will be thinking of you and your family. :)

We are doing pretty well.  I feel completely recovered from my c-section.. itching to go back to work.  It feels so silly to be at home with no baby.  Finley changes so much from day to day.  He was on full feedings and then stopped tolerating it so he stopped feedings for a week and they started him back up yesterday.  He was on just a nasal cannula for oxygen, but this morning he had multiple apnea and bradycardia episodes so he was put back on CPAP.  It just really depends on the day how he's doing.  He is up to 2lbs 11oz. 

 

These are from a couple days ago..

Thank you.. we are certainly trying!  I just went to see him and they had put him back on the ventilator.  Such a crazy roller coaster ride.

You both are so beautiful! You guys are still in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for the update and the pictures!

OhMyGoodness, that photo of you holding him made me teary-eyed.  He's just so sweet.

 

Keep growing, little man!
