I am looking forward to getting to know all of you.
Baby Girl decided to come on Feb. 22nd (labor, transition and delivery less than 38 minutes!) and after 1.5 weeks in Neonatal ICU, another week in Special Care Baby Unit and a few more days in a transitional ward, we are now reunited with her older brother (2.5 yrs. old - YR) and her father.
Needless to say we are all overjoyed and looking forward to when she can have her nasogastric feeding tube removed so we can take her out and about to see the wider world! We are so thankful for the expert care we received and the community team who visit us two times a week to change her tube and see how she is getting on. We are also so thankful that she is so healthy and strong in spite of "almost" arriving at 27.5 weeks and finally arriving at 32.3 weeks gestation.
Other prems out there? Advice/stories from other mom's of prems especially re: encouraging breastfeeding very welcome! Advice about where to find diaper covers for prems also welcome as it looks like she'll be in that size for a while yet! Feel free to send direct mail to me on this if there isn't a thread for it...limited time on computer at present so haven't looked to see if there is a thread for this yet...
please add me to the list! I was due April 3 and am having a boy!!! I'm a week past due so far. I guess that he will come when he's ready. He will be the second child in our family. We are having a homebirth with a midwife.
