Alexandra had some complications.. When we made it to the hospital they tested her blood sugar and it didn't even register on the machine it was so low. She was transfered to the NICU and spent the next four days there. We were finally released this morning.. She has a lot of problems nursing since we ended up having to give her a bottle (she was so lathargic that she wouldn't nurse at all).. She won't latch on but Im working with a lactation consultant and hopefully she will soon.. Im pumping and not having to supliment with formula anymore since her blood sugars are now stable...
