Here is my story with her about why she is early:
http://mobile.cafemom.com/group/pregnancy/forums/read/18447401/Stuck_in_the_hospital_until_baby_comes_w_update_s

6am yesterday I started having contractions and showing signs of a possible infection coming so they didn't try to stop them. I held out 10days in the hospital with her. Yay!

She was born this morning, 5/11/13 at 3:18am. I was 32w3d. She is 4lb 4oz and 17inchea.

She is doing excellent in the NICU. She has not needed any oxygen and they say her heath is great! She is doing much better than expected! It is so weird to have a baby so small. She is so tiny.

**NEWEST UPDATE & PIC ON PG 4&5**

Walked into the NICU to her under the blilight (sp?). I was so cute bc they drew eye lashes on the eye covers. hehe! She has a mild case of jaundice so they areteyi to just get rid of it. They said she is up to 4lb 8oz but that sounds weird bc yesterday they said she was 4lb 1oz. I know she is a lil piggy and they bumped her up again to 18mL every 3 hours (which is triple what it was on Sunday). Curious to see what they bump her to tomorrow. Poor thi has a rash though that is pretty bad and they haven't figured out what it is from but it was better at tonighhs visit than it was this morning. She is off any antibiotics so she is only receiving "fat" through her IV now.



Anyway that is her newest update. I am doing great. I have always recovered easy from births but this one has been even easier. It's so nice to be back in routine taking my kiddos to school and picking them up instead of relying on my poor dad to do it.

2 moms liked this

Baby girl is now officially above her birth weight! She weighed in at 4lb 6oz last night. They also moved her to bed 2 of 3 yesterday. They start out in a "critical" box even if they aren't actually critical when they come in. They moved her to another box that is a little bit different. Next bed will be an open bed they use in the nursery...when she is in that one, it means...ANYTIME! Lil stink pulled out her feeding tube last night for the 1st time so they also had to replace that. Yuck! Today she kept picking at it so hopefully it won't happen again but I am sure it will. She is just saying "forget this tube and give me a dang bottle already!!". 3 more days til her 1st bottle! I can't wait!
