We had. Major break thru today! The dr I like was working our floor today, and not only was he not concerned with her weight, he also couldn't believe we were still there. He came in, sat down and told us exactly what to expect at home, but that he really had no concerns and thought she would do great!! The O2 stuff the other doctor was harping on he said was completely normal and that as long as she wasn't in distress ( and even when it was bad she never was..) he saw no reason to keep us :-).
So as I write this I am finally after almost two weeks, sitting at home on my own couch feeding my daughter :-). And she seems to be eating MUCH better here too, I have never seen such a milk coma!! I think that now the stress of the hospital is gone , we are both having a much easier time.

We are in the hospital (she is 3 weeks, been here for 2) because she had pneumonia.
My daughter is all over with her numbers, generally speaking she is up, but the hospital made us fortify while she was sick, and she proofed up like a balloon. She gained weight, but she didn't look right at all. Now we are back to just BF again, she lost the extra poofyness, and leveled out, but last night at her weigh in, she lost a little again. I am worried they are going to make me fortify again and I really would rather not.
Overall I feel like if my daughter and I would be allowed to gain a good rhythm, with no fortifying, no IV, no crazymess, that we would start to gain on our own...
Mostly I am just stressed because there is a lot of focus on weight gain, and it is getting to me right now. I just want my daughter healthy so we can go home, and I know if they say to fortify I will end up giving in just to get them off my back... Bit it will have no Bering on getting her better, it's just a little oxygen left we have to ween her off of that is proving difficult.
