Quoting Jaz Mccall:" Hey Ladies! I have an almost 2 week old preemie. She was born July 24th at 31 weeks. She was recently ... [snip!] ... one to talk to. I apologize if this post seems whiny.. I'm just exhausted from putting on a brave face for my kids every day. "
Wow...your story sounds very similar to mine...I know how you feel...my son was born 8/28 at 32 weeks 4 days but only weighed 2 lbs 11 oz due to growth restriction from a faulty placenta that gave me pre-eclampsia which I had about 2 weeks before they delivered me b/c the blood flow in his umbilical cord was not continuous (as it had been before) and the amniotic fluid was getting low again (I was hospitalized a couple of weeks before b/c of low amniotic fluid...it had gotten down to 2.6 cm) and the blood flow in his brain was having some backflow. Sorry for rambling on but it does feel good to "tell your story" at least it does for me. Is your daughter home now? My son is 2 weeks old and is only up 3 oz from his birth weight. It seems like it is going to take FOREVER for him to gain up to 4 lbs. He is not allowed to come home until he is 4 lbs. Otherwise he is doing very well. Off all IV's and breathing room air.
