Hi , in short pp & p acreeta & bleeding , in hospital at mo . I've had 2 in nicu before but no here near this early . I know what having a sick baby is like. So fill me in what we talking ? Looks like weight 2lb 3 at mo another week 2 go if bleeding doesn't get worse or stop
Sounds like a good weight for 27 weeks. 28 weeks and normal weight gives your baby an excellent chance. I always tell people to look around the NICU but I guess you are an old hand.
My DS had problem with breathing and was ventilated for several weeks, but he was really tiny for dates. I know a few 28 weekers who have just had to feed and grow and gone home well before their due date. My main memory of the early days is endless expressing- the Bliss breastfeeding booklet is really helpful with all that stuff. Hopefully your baby will have a smooth journey. Hope you can hang in there a bit longer.
Just wanted to say good luck..my ds was a 26 weeker and weighed 2lb4. I was lucky enough to get antenatal steroids, as I presume you'll have had too by now, which meant he was only ventilated for 24 hrs (cpap for much much longer obviously). It is a tough old time and ds had many ups and downs but is now a healthy 13 mo. Every day your baby stays in is a bonus now and at 27/28 weeks the outlook is excellent. Head on over to bliss, they offer fantastic support in all sorts of ways.
thanks v much. am now offically 27 weeks. bleeding has stopped so no delivery. had steriods. but it is a waiting game now. think they will deliver me at next episode of bleeding so could be any time in the next in the next 7 weeks. scheduled for 34 weeks. if no more dramas !!!
