I had a c/s yesterday at 11:26am. An infection set in and then my contractions were coming one right after another. He was breech and very low so they were worried something was going to pop out so I was rushed to a section.<br><br>
Kane was born at 28 weeks on the nose at 2lbs 4oz.<br>
Apgars were 1,5 and 8<br><br>
He's doing ok...but just isn't breathing on his own and has us all pretty scared. They were giving dose #4 of surfactant this afternoon.<br><br>
I'm off...back to the NICU.<br><br>
Nothing I read prepared me for this. I'm so scared and nervous I don't know what to do with myself. We were so hoping he wouldn't be intubated so we could hold him right away... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
But he's holding on and we know things could be worse. I just hate leaving my little man alone but my stomach can only handle sitting upright for so long. DH is being awesome and doesn't want to leave his side... It's so sweet!

Congrats on his arrival!<br><br>
FWIW, I know lots of moms who have held babies on the vent, but I bet he won't be on it for too long.<br><br>
Thinking of you!

Congratulations!<br><br>
The first few days/ weeks are a tough transition for both you and the baby. Hopefully, once that is past, you'll be able to hold baby- intubated or not.<br><br>
You'll be in my thoughts!

My heart goes out to you and your baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
I remember none of it of course, but I was born at 28 weeks. My parents talk about how hard it was, but they also talk about admiring my strength and my fight. I am a pretty laid back, unmotivated person. I think I used it all up then <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But I am very healthy and have no effects of my early birth.<br><br>
Sending you all of my prayers,<br><br>
Beth
