My baby is here

Kayleigh Ann decided it was time to come out. I was only 34 w, 6 d when she was born. Went in to preterm labor and they could not get it stopped. She was born Sun, Jan 6th at 12:49 am. She was 7 lb, 2 oz and 18 in long. She has been in the NICU since birth. We are hoping she can come home tomorrow. I will right up my birth story later. K in in the NICU and my parents have the older girls. Dh and I are trying to see everyone and I know I am doing too much. I hope tomorrow we can all just come home.

Re: My baby is here

Congratulations!!!!! I have a 33weeker in the nicu currently(7 days pp) so I have an idea of the stress, the financial ramifications and the sleepless nights you are experiencing. And this is my second preemie because last time I was blessed with a 34weeker. My guess is that little Kayleigh is just a feeder and grower and she'll be home to you soon enough. But what a GREAT size for a 34weeker. Mine was 5lbs 3oz and my 33weeker is 4lbs 12oz. Think of it this way: at least you can use newborn clothing and diapers!!!! Congrats on her mama, she's absolutely precious!

Re: My baby is here

Yes, she did have some issues with preemie lungs, but that took about 3 days to clear up. Now Jaundice is holding her up. I am waiting till shift change is over, so I can call and see her number. if it went down, I can room in tonight and she will be home tomorrow. I hope both our babies will be home soon

Congrats! Keeping my fingers crossed for you that she will come home tomorrow!

My oldest was born at 34w5d, and she weighed 7lb 12oz.

Oh, and take it easy - don't wear yourself out!

Re: My baby is here

Congrats! Hopefully the jaundice clears up soon and you can take her home. I had 2 35 weekers and I thought they were decent sizes at 6#1 and 5#14... Makes you wonder how big Kayleigh would have been at full term!
