Darcy, in response to your question about your baby's lungs, the docs would give you steroid shots (in your butt...yay ) to help develop baby's lungs. That's what they did for me, and Sam turned out to be just fine! Plus, at 34 weeks, you're past almost all of the developmental hurdles. Hang in there, mama! Take a break, put your feet up, and just try and relax. You'll be fine!

Congrats Mama....she is just lovely!

She looks great! So a little less than 3 1/2 pounds, right? She looks so big! My dd1 was 5/7 at birth (35 weeks) and she looked very similar - all that vernix too! My Maria didn't have any of that...anyway I digress...it's late here...sorry about that.

Congrats- she looks soooo big in my eyes! If she is doing all you say, its true she should be home soon.

Keep up that pumping mama and pm me for anything!

The Ronald McDonald house is a wonderful thing. They also sponsor the hospital Maggie is at and some parents are staying there as well. I cannot say enough about them. Everyone- if you want to donate to a great cause this is the one.

Sam's milk intake has been doubled, so she's getting 6 ml/hour now. She's gained back an ounce of the 4 that she lost since birth, so her weight is at 3lb, 2oz now. She's still teeny, but doing phenomenally well. It's hard to believe that she'll barely have broken 4 pounds when we get her home! My DH can't imagine driving home on the interstate with something so small. He joked that we'll be driving 20mph with our hazard lights on!

Thank you all so much. I'll keep you updated as we learn more!

lurking from the nov due date club, but couldn't read and not say a big, huge CONGRATULATIONS from a former NICU mama! It's such a wild, intense time. Samantha sounds like such a little fighter, and I'm sure you'll have her home before you know it!
