hi - I ended up in the hospital with ruptured membranes on 11/13 and then delivered on 11/27. I developed a uterine infection , the baby was having a lot of distress, and there was meconium in my fluid so we were really scared. Amazingly she came out looking better than expected and, at 2-9 has been breathing on her own for 4 days now! The worst part is that she is over 2 hours away - I have been able to "kangaroo" her when I visit, thoguh, and it is just the greatest thing. I syaed in the hospital 5 more days on IV antibiotics and I am still feeling pretty weak. I'm pumping every 2 hours and trying to get some rest when I can.

Welcome Joey! Congratulations! It sounds like she is doing well for being so early! That must be hard to be so far away though. Your family will continue to be in my thoughts. Keep us posted as to how both you and Joey are doing. Oh, and I love the name!

Popping in from the Nov/Dec DDC to say congratulations and I wish you and your baby strength to get through this. I have a dear friend that delivered at 30 weeks and her son is now 2 years old and you wouldn't even know he was so early. I wish you the best!

Congratulations!

I post on another board and we have a mommy who delivered at 27 weeks. Her daughter is the same (adjusted age) as mine and doing everything she should be doing at this age. I hope your daughter comes home soon. Nice name btw. Grace is one of my daughter's middle names too.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

Not in your group but wanted to add my congratulations! My son was also born after PROM, at 31 weeks. I wish you lots of luck, and big hugs to the new baby! I hope that she continues to do well and breathe on her own!

wow. Congratulations. I'm glad to hear she is doing so well and that you're able to pump for her. I cant imagine how difficult this must all be with all of your other children as well. I'm glad she is ok.
Good luck and keep us posted as you can.
