Quoting It's a boy!!!!*3/27/13*:" Looks like I will be having my baby not next week at 34 weeks. I am terrified because idk how he is going ... [snip!] ... do. I got the steroid injections last week but still you don't know if that helps. I am just scared and needed to vent I guess."
I hope all goes well for you and your little one. My 34 weeker was breathing pretty much on her own, had CPAP right at first. The steroid shots really did help, I think. She was under the bili lights and had an IV for about 7/8 days. Right now she is 19days and working on eating by mouth. We've been trying bottles for 2 weeks now and she is improving. Will take up to 40mls of her 60 every 3 hours depending on her mood. Some times its only 10mls before she gets tired and falls asleep. Or my favorite is when she is being rotten and is wide awake but won't eat anymore.
I know its scary and the worse is always in the back of your mind, but just think, it will be better for him and you that he is here safely and in the care of great staff in the nicu. I don't have any other kids but today marks my one month of being at the hospital between me being a patient with pre-e and now
Dylan's stay in the nicu. Stay strong momma!!
