Re: Introduce your Preemie(s)!

I LOVE this thread.

DD#1-Full term. 37 weeks. 6lbs 1 oz
DD#2-Preemie. 28 weeks. PROM. Extreme IUGR. 1 lb 7 oz. At my routine 18 week ultrasound they found that our little one was NOT growing and explained to us that she would never make it to 24 weeks. They said the will die and they wanted us to terminate. Well we made it to 28 weeks and my water broke. I stayed in the hospital 2 days and then had a placental abruption so we delivered my little girl that night. Maygen spent 90 days in the NICU. She was extremely sick when she was born and again they said she wouldn't make it. We had the oscilator, vent, c-pap and nasal canula. We came on home monitors and O2. At her 1st b-day she was just shy of 10 pounds and we had a g-tube put in. She had many medical issues like BPD, cystic kidney, VSD, thyroid issues, GI issues, etc. She was on tube feeds for 3 years and just recently we had her tube taken out. She is doing amazing and God has blessed us with her beautiful life! Here is a pic of her a few days after birth.

And her today:

DD#3-Full term. 39 weeks. 8 lbs 12 oz
DD#4-Fulll term. 39 weeks. 8lbs 4 oz

Both #3 and #4 I received progesterone shots weekly for 20 weeks.

Currently pg with #5. 37 weeks and counting!
Wife to my best friend. mama to 6!
