Hello ladies, our girl is here 6lbs3oz, 19.5 inces long, she's in the NICU tonight, but hoping to get her moved over to the nursery tomorrow. She is on Cpap until midnight, we will see how it plays out. I'll post more tomorrow. Thanks for all the support!

Baby update.. She is still in the NICU, looks like she needs more time on the CPAP, hopefully the grunting will stop altogether. They are running a Meriad of tests to ensure that there is not an infection at the root of all of this and have prophylacticly  treated her with 2 types of antibiotics that  cover  most of the spectrum. The culture takes 48 hours to grow, so they can't wait to get started. It's hard being back in the NICU. Last night my left leg was numb and I had not seen her since she was born around 3:30, my husband had dashed home to tuck in the other babies and relieve my mom when the NICU called and said I could go see her. My nurse forgot my request to go down and after 45 mins I found myself in tears, numb on one side dying to see my daughter, whom I had not seen for more than a moment. After pitching a fit,  I went down a few mins later and got to fall in love with her. She didn't seem like she was mine until then. Today I got to nurse her, shortly after she began struggling again, so I imagine it's my last time to hold her for a couple of days. I'm pumping but my milk is not in yet, usually a solid 3 days for me. Can't wait to provide her mik for her. despite these little set backs we did an amazing job and she will be home soon.

A big congrats on your new baby girl =) I'm sorry to hear that you're back in the NICU but I'm sure she will pull through and you will all be one big happy family again! You did a great job... I know it's probably a stupid question but did you get steroid shots at all?!?

Congrats again!

Thanks Mammaof3, it's not a stupid question, yes we did when I started effacing and dilating 4/6

Even after the steroids it is her breathing that is compromised. She is grunting because she is struggling to keep her lungs completrly opened. She can gavage feed, but when she nipples bottle or breast she grunts. In a few days this will clear up. Her blood gases are perfect , no infections, she just needs a little time.

She would be 37 weeks today. She is 5lbs 10 oz today, breathing perfect and home where she belongs. Thank you thank you thank you ladies, I truly have been lifted up by your friendships and support.
