Finally getting around to Her Birth Story

As some of you already know I had our DD early at 30 weeks GA! I posted on the early board on DS but here is my story

I had an appoitnment on friday March 23 my perinates but my hubby was going to be out of town maybe and I and him just had a feeling I should just go earlier if I could. Well they were able to see me on Thursday March 15th for an U/S and at the U/S the Tech (Heidie) her guardian angel saw a clot in her umbilical cord that was life threatening to her. Usually these clots called umbilical thrombus are not caught or seen and it becomes to late for the LOs to survive as the clot will grow and move. However God had a different plan for our Sång (pronounced SONG) in his hands she was held up, she was held tightly safe. My Perinatologist told me I was not going back home my DH and other two kids were back in Taos I came to the appointment alone down in santa fe. I was rushed via ambulance to Albuquerque. I had a great nurse named Chris who gave me 1 steroid shot in the bum~ it did not hurt at all. One of my Doctors came in and I was on a monitor, I went with him and saw the Vascular sonographer and it was confirmed there was a clot, an umbilical thrombus which is very rare and even rarer for anyone to catch it or see it happening. The clot had grown 50% and migrated since leaving santa fe and coming to ABQ which is about an hr away. I was prepped for a c-section. DH arrived just in time to come in with me and I got a spinal our dear friend stayed with our other two in the waiting room.


Sång Meer Ericsso
n (Sång is swedish and pronounced "song") was born TEN weeks early via c-sedtion 3/15/12 2lbs 13oz 15.5 inches long stamping her feet and crying. Lifted safely up and out by GOD and handed to a great team at the NICU~our little girl was good. She was great, she was OK! She was NOT put on a ventilator and at day 7 she was breathing room air at day 9 they took out the pic IV line and the feeding tube in her nose came out a few day after. She was eating on her own! The doctors are all fascinated by her they say its god because they don't know how else she would be doing so well. Both perinatologist are amazed by her and the NICU team as well. The all marched in to see this little feisty baby that beat all the odds and was doing so well. She is sweet and spunky and strong via GOD. The next 4 weeks she spent in the NICU and I went to see her every day. My DH had to be back in Taos with our ODD because she had school and I kept our DS with me. They have a great volunteer staff and helpers to that helped me to watch DS so I could see Sång every day and DH would come on the weekends with DD (luckily she had two four day weekends in this time) The beginning of the 3rd week she was moved and then again to the west side of the NICU. I'll never for get Wed April 11th when the Neonatologist said she is going home SUNDAY!the 15th. So we have been home less than a week she was of O2 for a few day but back on the smallest flow as we are 7500 feet up in the mountains here so they anticipated that. Although her saturation on O2 is very high off it it's just borderline so the think she'll be off within a week but what ever she needs. She does nurse from me at least 2-3 times a day but she is on 24 calorie preemie formula. (3/4 teaspoon added to my bm) for about 4-5 more weeks. Her brain scans were perfect and her clot issue was resolved as soon as they clamped her cord off of me. Also one of my doctors had just written an article on Umbilical thrombus within the last two mths! not a coincidenceWOW! writing all this...I'm crying praise GOD!

It is nice to be home!
She is in fluff I had to buy preemie fluff she is doing great. She is 5weeks 3 days old and weighs 4.7lbs!

Here she is:

What a amazing story. I hope you are able to journal all your feelings you had about this experience for her to read one day. Truely a miracle.
