I've been lurking for a while and wanted to introduce myself. ?My daughter was born 2 1/2 weeks ago at 27w 1d. ?She was severely growth restricted due to placental insufficiency (of unknown origin). ?When she was born she weighed 1 lb 1 oz, and she's now up to 1 lb 4 oz. ?So far she hasn't had any major problems (no brain bleeds, no PDA), but she's had some problems with breathing and eliminating CO2 so she's been on the vent since birth. ?
It's been very hard for my husband and me - the whole one-day-at-a-time thing. ?I'm just looking for some other moms who have had similar experiences to talk to.?
