thanks for all of your love and good thoughts. We are still doing well. We've been warned that he'll have set-backs and bad days, but for now, we're celebrating the good. We're happy that he's eating well (he's at 4ml every 2 hours now) and breathing well. He's had a bit of apnea, but nothing out of the ordinary for this gestation age.
I'm feeling quite well. I had a couple of stitches for internal tears, but feel like I'm healing well. The past two days were very emotional. I felt very down and weepy, but feel more myself today. More than anything, I miss the little guy. it's wonderful to be close to him, and I could stare at him for hours. We've even had skin-to-skin yesterday and today. But eventually, we have to leave the hospital and that's been hard. It's weird not to have him inside me, and to not be pregnant, and then also to not have him in my arms.
Springmum, we just found out yesterday that it was a GBS infection. Totally sucks! I wish I'd been tested for it.
Chrisa, I got a steroid shot at about 8am, but he was born at 3:35pm, so he didn't have the full benefit of it. Luckily his lungs were strong on their own, and were producing their own surfactant.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that we're all doing well, and to send my thanks to everyone for their thoughts. Wishing you healthy and long pregnancies. :)
