These pics are from last night before we left.  I hated to leave her but i know i will be able to go up everyday to see her untill she is home.

Icant wait untill i am totally healed from the c-section.  I have been doing good so far dont have to much pain and when i do i have some meds to help with it.  By the time Kylie comes home i should be alot better which is good so ill be able to take care of her and not have to worry about hurting myself to be able to take of her needs.  I cant wait to go up and see her later.

She's precious! How early was she? That nurse bottle thing is new to me. Our NICU didn't use those.

Thanx...
She was at 30 weeks when she was born and is 2 weeks old now. they use that to get her to learn to suck while they tube feed her. that way she can learn to get the bottle.

They always just did the pacifier or else I would come and let him nuzzle at the breast while he was gavaged before he could breastfeed.

They give her the pacifier too but she is on formula cause i cant breastfeed because of some of the meds im on.

You can still nuzzle her and get that closeness if you want.

Yeah, that's the greatest feeling in the world. Julian was on oxygen the entire 9wks he was there and whenever we were doing kangaroo care he always breathed much better.

Aww thats good. Im so glad she is breathing on her own i feel so bad for the other babies who are on oxygen.

Yeah, you're lucky. We now have lung disease due to all of the oxygen.

aww...she is very lucky and i am glad i was in the hospital 5 weeks so she had the time so the steriods could mature her lungs. were you able to get those?

Did your water break? I was admitted at 26.5wks with preterm labor, was given terbutaline then sent home the next morning. The next day I ended up back in the hospital with contractions again and I was dialating quickly. I was put on magnesium sulfate and got my first shot of steroid. Then after almost 48hrs my water broke at 27wks and I received my second steroid shot that night. I was taken off of the mag after 60hrs and then I just layed around in bed for 2wks being transferred back and forth between anti-partum and L&D before I went into labor for the final time.

After about 60hrs of labor I finally started dialating again and baby had turned breech so I had a c-section. Fun times!

And I'm sorry that you can't breastfeed. She's beautiful though and I love her hat.
