Hi everyone! I am writing on my phone from the NICU, so pardon my formatting. I went into labor at 28 weeks 5 days and after two trips to the doctor (who determined nothing was wrong) after some leaking and cramping. I went into labor nd delivery on the morning of may 6th and they sent me to Maine medical center because I was 2 cm dilated and 60% effaced and our local hospital does not handle preemies. The doctors tried to delay labor with magnesium but it did not work..DS came flying into the world at 3:51 on may 7th. He weighed 2 lbs 15 oz and was 14 1/2 inches long. We have been in the NICU ever since. Ds lost 8 oz and Is just today back up to his. Irth weight. The doctors are very happy with how well he has done...he was breathing room air a couple of days after birth. He is still in the isolette for warmth, receives caffeine and drinks his milk through his feedig tube. Otherwise, he is just growing away all on his own. We have been here just over two weeks now. The days are long with travel back and forth to the hospital. We are so lucky that chase is doing so well. It is and will continue to be a long road ahead but I am thig to keep positive. I look forward to gettin to know you all!
