Ladies

I am in disbelief and feel like I am on another planet. My journey through this whole pregnancy has been followed with an unsettling feeling. An early bleed to fluid leaks from 22 wks on and off with no answers when checked. Well suddenly on Sunday Jan 29 I awoke to strong cx lasting and every 4 min I headed in to a hospital as a walk in. Had a quick u/s and only 3 fluid level. 5hrs later he was born. ALL NATURAL NO ADDED JUNK FROM THEM. He is doing good and I am playing an active role in his care and at only one of two hospitals that offer moms and preemies to room together privatly. I have refused many things and he is amazingly strong! My milk came in on day 2 and he gets fed already thru his feeding tube. I was 31 wks plus 1 day. What a difference from three flawless pregnancies and homebirths! No name yet. He weighed 3.6oz but already down to 2.13oz but he will gain.

Couldn't wait to post using my thumbs more to come later. Totally doing kangaroo care no box for my little man!

Congratulations!  I know how intense an unexpected early delivery can be, but it sounds like you are doing everything right.  Keep up the good work and I will be sending you and your baby healthy vibes.

Congratulations!!!  You sound like you're in good spirits even though I'm sure it is quite stressful for you.  I'm glad to hear you're working with a supportive medical team and doing Kangaroo Care.  That makes such a difference for preemies.  Way to go, mama!

Wow, so great to hear such a wonderful preemie story!  Congratulations, I'm sure he'll make up that weight in no time!
