Re: Bedrest/hospital stay/nicu thread

  • Wow, welcome Baby Boy Bloom, and congratulations to you @Lbloom! Praying for both your continued recovery and a short and uncomplicated NICU stay for Baby Bloom - what a strong little fighter he is! ❤️❤️

  • Congratulations!  He's such a great size for 29 weeks! I'm a mom of a former 30 weeker.  The NICU can be quite the emotional roller coaster.    I will pray for an uneventful NICU stay.  I'm in a facebook group called Preemie Moms.  If you're on FB, it's a great support group if you want to join!

    Congratulations on your little boy! Wow, 4lbs at 29 weeks - I'm sure he is absolutely tiny but that does seem like a good size for his gestation. He was trying to fatten up in there so he could come out early :smile: I hope he has a very uneventful NICU stay. Don't forget to take care of yourself, mama! Will keep you and baby boy Bloom in my thoughts!

  • Thank you for sharing this update. I'm glad to hear you guys are in good hands, and you sound like a couple of tough cookies! Wishing you a fast and uneventful stay  <3

  • I had my daughter at 29w4d because she stopped growing. She was 1lb14oz and is now almost 4! Happy healthy girl. Prayers and hugs for you mama. NICU stays are tough but you are a good length along and it gets better every single day! Good luck. You are in my thoughts and prayers. 
    Lbloom
  • Aw welcome to the world baby boy! Congratulations momma. Nothing but prayers & comfort headed your way! Sounds like you have a strong fighter on your hands
    Lbloom
  • @Lbloom It's incredible that he needs no oxygen support as a 29 weeker! My 34 weeker was on CPAP for 5 days. The waiting game must be really tough. I've also found in my own experience that neonatologists tend to talk a lot about the worst case scenario, which can be super stressful. 

    Hoping you can rest and take care of yourself. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Thinking of you guys often!

  • @Lbloom is sounds like little Sean is doing really well and I hope he continues in that trajectory so you can bring him home soon.

  • Congratulations!  I can imagine how unbelievably stressful this has all been for you.  Tons of thoughts and prayers your way!

  • I dislike being such a "special snowflake". Earlier in the year (before I was pregnant) I had recurring UTI'S which I've only had a few in my life to that point. After a CT scan it was discovered I also have a "horse shoe" shaped kidney. I've had it since about week 7 of life in the womb. Instead of two separate ones, I have two that are fused together in the middle around my spine. It's weird to find out all these unique things about your physiology 36 years down the road.  :o
  • @Lbloom that’s interesting that they were able to figure all that out! And while it’s sad to think you might be passing down a potentially difficult pregnancy, at least they will have the knowledge of your experience to go with it. I’m glad to hear that Sean is doing so well and good for you, that’s gotta be a lot of pumping!

  • @Lbloom so glad to hear he’s doing so well! And definitely helpful to know all of that. Like Meggyme said, while it’s hard knowing your children could have similarly difficult pregnancies, at least they’ll know in advance what issues they may face and hopefully medicine will have advanced enough to help offset some of the potential complications. Keeping you guys in my prayers!

  • @Lbloom glad you got some answers and it sounds like baby Bloom is a truly amazing little man!
  • @meggyme you said it! 2-3 hours around the clock. It's a full time job and add in trying to manage it all around his care schedule, finding time to eat, driving to and from home every day to be with my other kids. I'm barely keeping up!
