unuselyriver 12-05-2013 08:35 PM

ok today has been one really hard day my little girl is sick again this time with a cold and it has made her lose a good bit of weight she was 7 lbs 12ozs on monday and today she is 7 lbs 6 ozs i know that is not a really big loss but i dont like it she does not really want to eat i have took her to her peds but they told me she is ok but i dont feel she is she has been running a low grade fever for two days now and i dont know what else i can do been clean her noise out and keep her leveled to help it break up but she has such a bad cough

Colds suck! Breast milk makes good nose drops- much better than saline. I remember letting mine sleep in a bouncy chair- I would sleep beside them. Keep an eye on pees- you want 6-8 wet dipes a day- much less than that and dehydration is a worry. Hang in there!

Uriver, my little guy has been stuffed up pretty much since birth. He's way better now then at first. His nose has cleared, but still has snot in his throat. He's actually thrown up a few times from it and he's not a spitty baby.

Other then that, I love this little guy. So fun to hold. I've had to use the sling to get stuff done now that I'm doing more. He's over 3 wks now. Time flies! smile.gif

unuselyriver 12-06-2013 05:19 PM

taichimom 12-06-2013 09:23 PM

100%mom 12-07-2013 01:23 AM

unuselyriver 12-08-2013 05:43 AM

Hey ladies we are doing good this morning thank god did get some bad news well cloud be bad news the doc heared a mumor in heart last night and said they where going to send her for an echo today it has been a long day already here is a pic of my sweet baby that did not even cry after they had to stick here 8 times just to get the iv in her and the blood work they need

unuselyriver 12-08-2013 05:51 AM

Well i tired it wont let me add the pic

baileyb 12-08-2013 08:33 AM

I am so so sorry Uriver! Big hugs! The unknown is so scary.

M Anna 12-08-2013 01:15 PM

Uriver, I hope everything turns out ok!! (((hugs)))!!!!! My baby has a murmur they heard the day after she was born. They sent her for an echo and she has a hole between her ventricles. It's not affecting her right now so we're just watching it. She's supposed to have another echo when she turns 2 months. If it doesn't close they'll have to do surgery but they told us that most of them close on their own.


I hadn't really stopped bleeding but it had gotten down to brown mucus for the most part for a couple days. Then yesterday I started back up again. I think it's actually my cycle starting. :( I started by 6 weeks with all of my other babies but I had hoped it wouldn't this time. I'm 5 weeks and 3 days post partum today. *sigh*

unuselyriver 12-08-2013 07:39 PM

Well we are doing ok right now m anna it show the same thing on her echo to we are suspost be talking to a heart doc in the morning about hers we also gottold that she tested +for rsv so we are have a little bit of a rough spell with her plus the doc also so some nerve issuse and we will also be see a neurologist tomorrow as well so it looks like we will be here a bit

j and js mommy 12-08-2013 07:42 PM

M Anna I've never gotten my period while nursing so I feel for u.
Hello everyone. Cole is 5 mo on the 10 th already. Dang!! He is the best baby ever. Ex. At church today there was a play and he just sat on our laps for 2 hours watching the stage. He is my sweetheart!! Nursing, no food yet. I'd say he is a little behind with milestones so we r getting him checked out. My supply is half what it was with my first. Oh well. I feel that engorgement post stillbirth has something to do with it. I didn't get baby blues at all but seeing cole makes me think of Jackson soo much. I feel like thanking Jackson for Cole. Very thankful.

M Anna 12-08-2013 08:28 PM

Oh, I'm sorry she has RSV. :( My twin nephews are in the ICU right now with it. (They're 8 weeks.)

unuselyriver 12-08-2013 08:31 PM

Oh no i am sorry to her that i hope they are doing ok

baileyb 12-09-2013 06:50 AM

Hugs Uriver! My youngest has some cranial nerve damage but it isn't holding her back from meeting her milestones. Sorry you are having to go through this!

j and js mommy 12-09-2013 07:46 AM

My nephew had rsv couple weeks ago and was in er. It's bad this year I guess

M Anna 12-09-2013 08:03 AM

They're still there. One is still on O2 all the time and sitting up or his sats drop in the 80's. The other is not on O2 but hasn't gotten rid of his fever.

j and js mommy 12-09-2013 12:03 PM

Oh geeze I'll say a little prayer for them

Shiloh 12-10-2013 09:43 AM

All 3 of my boys had pnemonia and rsv and were quarentined isolation at 2 months old. Scary as sh*t. You can see how it could cause sids. I'm happy you're in hospital and not trying to cure it at home. Oxygen levels are f*cking scary. Seeing a was healthy baby so tired on oxygen f*cking scary.
I barely take miss rose out or invite people over probably because of that experience. Hey did you wash your hands, was that a cough? Prayers, hugs, love Uriver

Sienna-forever 12-10-2013 10:32 AM

Praying for the poorly babies.

Do you know what makes me angry. People saying to me that I should take saffron out and let her be exposed to bugs to 'build her immunity' erm no way, look at what a cold can do to these poor little things. And this is coming from family that knows saffrons just spent 11 weeks in nicu. Honestly it makes me so mad.

The same person then said could I breastfeed whilst she drove the car. I was like Nooooo you can wait 5 mins for the baby to feed then we'll put her in the car seat. Crazy things to say.

unuselyriver 12-10-2013 11:57 AM

Omg that would make me really angry too i did not even take her out but we people over thanksgiving day and i think that is how she got rsv but in one way i am kind of glad she did cause i would not have know about the other stuff if she hadnt but i wish she would get over it soon but they told me baby with the problems she has dont get over stuff easy from what they said and she had drop back down to her birth weight too so we can leave till she is 8 lbs if all is good by then

Sienna-forever 12-10-2013 01:27 PM

Poor thing river. What's her weight now? Yes maybe a blessing in disguise that they've been able to identify the other issues. Thinking of you.

unuselyriver 12-10-2013 02:23 PM

She is 6lbs and 13 ozs as of this morning she was 6lbs and 14ozs at birth and they told me and here dad that she should be at least 8 lbs or more by now

Shiloh 12-10-2013 06:14 PM

How many weeks?

unuselyriver 12-10-2013 06:51 PM

She is 1 month and a few days

j and js mommy 12-11-2013 10:04 AM

Sienna tell your friend I have a client who nursed in her car while car was moving at 11am. A drunk hit them head on mom lost her eye and baby has fractured femur. Stupid.

M Anna 12-11-2013 12:57 PM

Uriver, thinking you and baby. ((Hugs)) I hope she plumps up quickly!!
