I was really at your software comment. I too work in software, specifically designing, writing the requirements, testing the code and supporting QA. The day after I left to have Rachel was the day this big change was supposed to go into QA... basically the next generation of our current prod code. It was scheduled for two months of QA, a month of parallel, and then a prod drop in mid-October. Guess what? It just went into QA yesterday
LOL, at least it is job security for us???

Here's a :guh from me too.

I agree with Jessica Juice that if she was happy all day, despite having eaten nothing (which is a big bummer), boy MUCH better than having screamed of hunger all day! Or screamed of whatever! Let us know how today goes.

I've been in "geek mode" today and I did some rough calculations on our DDC stats. I've been meaning to do this for a while, but today I finally got around to it because I have so many other things that I should be doing (I call it creative procrastination!).

(all of the stats I used are from the info that Celeste gathered as we had our babes)

Total of 85 mamas
49 boys (55%)
40 girls (45%)
4 twin PGcy (4.5%)

Weight Ranges (from 3lbs 2oz to 10lbs 9oz)
3lbs - 1 (1%)
4lbs - 1 (1%)
5lbs - 4 (4.5%)
6lbs - 16 (18.5%)
7lbs - 23 (26%)
8lbs - 26 (30%)
9lbs - 12 (13.5%)
10lbs - 4 (4.5%)

Due vs. born (from June 6 to August 13)
"Early" - 43 (55%) (earliest was 6 wks early)
"Late" - 32 (41%) (latest was 17 days over)
"on time" - 3 (4%)

Length (from 17.9in to 23in)
17in - 1 (1.5%)
18in - 9 (13%)
19in - 13 (18.5%)
20in - 22 (31.5%)
21in - 17 (24%)
22in - 7 (10%)
23in - 1 (1.5%)

Ok, I think that's it from the info I compared. Let me know if there's anything else that you'd like stats done on ... I have lots more that I need to procrastinate from doing!

Laura, Troy, Seth 6.24.06 , and Aaron 7.13.09

Thank you for compiling that! It is neat to see where we all stand. Now, don't let me encourage your procrastination, but I'd also be curious what percentages were hospital/home and vaginal/c-s. I know that might be a sensitive thing for some of us, and I am in no way trying to stir up anything. I am simply curious.

: Thanks again for all the support. Really means a lot

Rachel did much better today. I brought a sport bottle with 12 oz of milk and a few different bottles and cups to try. They fed her every hour or so, and got a total of 6 ounces into her, averaging 1 ounce per try. She did best with the Avent bottle (this after I went and bought a set of Soothie bottles : Anyone need Soothie bottles?) She was totally happy and fine all day, and she didn't fight them on the bottle. Just didn't seem all that interested. She slept more today too. Three 45-minute stints. She was more interactive tonight, and we did have a complete nursathon all evening. Always good to make up for lost time.

She didn't eat any more than normal last night. A blessing and a curse I suppose. I woke her to eat before I went to sleep and then she latched on briefly at 4 but went right back to sleep. I fed her at 5:45 but she only took one side, so when I pumped at 9:30 I got 8 ounces out of the right boob. My DH was hysterical laughing when I got out of the shower because I was totally lopsided

So tomorrow is my day off - a chance to make sure all is well with the supply and tank up my growing girl. I really REALLY hope this doesn't cause a regression!

Cori, good luck on your first day back! (tomorrow right?)

Laura, holy statistician! That was really cool, thanks for sharing those numbers. And if no one would mind and you have the time I'd love to see the stats that Tanya suggested.
