Congratulations!!!!!!
My first was born at 33 weeks weighing 5 lbs 6 oz and got to come home after 9 days in the NICU. Its hard not having them home right away, but before you know it, you'll have your beautiful little girl.
How awesome that you got to spend some time with her first, though!
: for you!!

Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers mamas! We haven't been able to hold her since she's been in the NICU and I'm not able to nurse her right now due to her breathing (she might aspirate) but am able to get enough colustrum with the hospital pump now to give her a little through her feeding tube. Her blood sugar is stable so we're just waiting on her breathing to improve. She's getting plenty of oxygen on her own but she's grunting so that's the main issue right now that we're waiting on to improve. Oh her daddy went down to the NICU to pick up some bottles for me to pump into and got to change her first poopy diaper while visiting. He was beaming with pride when he came back.

When our little ones were in the NICU, we could not hold them for at least a day (and then only in little bundles with all sorts of wires coming out the end), and I could not nurse for several days (possibly a week or more), but pumped around the clock and made sure they got every tiny drop... we went on to have a great 25-month nursing relationship, without any problems! Everything will be great!

Sounds like you guys are doing great through what's been a rough ride. Hopefully you will all be snuggling at home in your own beds together soon.

Congratulations!! ::

: that she's nursing great ASAP and home with you on Monday.

The rest of you babies, just because River is doing great at 36ish weeks, that doesn't mean you get to rush things. Her mom had a special medical reason for an early induction--you guys all have to cook more, got it? Stay put!

: that River has a super short NICU stay and that her's is the longest one in the DDC.

Whoo hoo! Congrats to you! I'm sure the pumping will pick up. I hard a hard time when I had to pump initially for dd1, but I'm sure a hospital pump will do better than hand expressing colostrum into a teaspoon!

I'm so happy for you and your family!
