Hello mommas!

Lata(Kothi) called me today and asked me to post for her as she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl by emergency c-sec on Thursday.

Savitri Helen was born on 2/7/08 at 8:23pm.
She is 5lb,12oz and 18.5 inches long

Baby Savitri is in NICU as her lungs are not fully developed and momma has a bad cold and is not allowed to touch/hold her. So please mommas,let us send piles of love and light Arizona way to mom and babe.

Momma will be out of the hospital in a few days and will post her story.

Blessings to you all,

Becky

Another "Wow!" over here. Wow!
Congratulations, Kothi, and welcome baby Savitri. What a pretty name!!

Sending lots and lots of hugs and healthy baby/ healthy mom vibes along as well. I know from experience how hard it is to be separated from your preemie. I hope you two are together very, very soon.

Also sending good nursing vibes, since I know that's hard with a preemie as well. :

Congratulations, Kothi! Your daughter's name is beautiful!
I'm sure she'll be out of the NICU in no time: and I hope you're feeling better so you can hold that little lady soon!

Congratulations on the birth of your baby and here's to a quick recovery for you both.

If this isn't the birth you'd hoped for, know that you are fully entitled to grieve for what you wanted or what you might feel you lost. I hope you and babe are soon reunited!

Congratulations again!

Congratulations Kothi! Welcome Savitri!

Hope that the next few days bring lots of good news and lots of cuddle time, and then you can head home to begin familyhood together!

I noticed something ironic: On the Baby Announcement thread, Kothi answered a question about who might go next by mentioning a few other DDC members. But actually it was Kothi!

thanks, eveyone... yes, very ironic... never thought I would be #2!???


Got d/c from hospital just now, came home to hug the little guy and grab some comfort stuff, clothes, etc and turn around and be in time to pump AGAIN.

Good news: got to touch/hold Savitri by Sat night, she's doing better, off cpap now, on nasal canula and breathing w/ ease on it.

Still working on: feeding - still on OG tube, trouble breathing when we try nipple, not yet cleared for breast. Much very frequent pumping in my future. Release from NICU unknown. Won't release till nipple feeding established.

Must go back into town - will be staying in NICU/ RM house til we can victoriously bring Savitri home hanging on to my anxiously awaiting breast.

Good vibes for all awaiting and present babies!!!

I'm so glad you are able to hold your baby now.
My recollection of my 34 weeker is that she took her own feeding tube out when she was about 5 days old, but that it was still pretty hard to nurse her some of the time. She was very sleepy and had a weak suck. But she learned to do okay by the time she was 7-8 days old, and left the NICU at 11 days. Hang in there! It's really tough being a NICU mommy, especially when you have a little one at home. Great big hugs to you!
