Andrew Theodore arrived on Wed Jan 5, 2011 at 8:00 am by C-section.  He was 6 pounds 7 oz and 18 inches long.  He was 34 weeks and 5 days and is in the NICU still but is doing well.  I was lucky enough to be up to a wheelchair by 11am and walked on my own to the NICU within 6 hours of him being born.  We are all tired and anxious for him to come home.

Welcome Earthside, Andrew Theodore!  Congratulations on your new son, Mama!

 

I don't know if you've been over there yet, but the MDC NICU and Preemie Parenting boards were really, really helpful to me during our NICU stay.  I hope (and totally expect!) you'll have a short, uneventful stay and both be home really soon.  Please keep us updated when you can!

Congrats, Alicia! I hope the delivery went well. I can't believe what an awesome weight he has for being that early :) I love the name you settled on, by the way :) I'm so happy that the pregnancy is finally over- you must feel relieved about that! I will pray that the waiting period in NCIU is short and you can all go home and start your new life. 

 

Congrats again and God bless :)
