Welcome Amelia Pauline Grow!! Born December 10th at 7:22am. She is 5 lbs 8 oz and 17 inches long. She's doing really well, even breathing on her own, but they have her hooked up because her lungs are underdeveloped still. I made it to 32 weeks, 4 days before I went into labor!
Contractions started a couple days ago, but came and went. Last night they started to become regular and painful at around 7pm. I was able to go to sleep with the help of some Ambien and Vicodin, but I woke up at 3 am with EXTREMELY painful contractions... At around 6am, I had some bloody show, so the doctor checked me and I was dialated to 2cm and 80% effaced. Since baby was still breech, they took me right in to deliver via c-section.
I'm already producing colostrum!!!
That makes me really excited, because I didn't produce any while pumping with Sophia until a couple days after I had her. This time, I got some the FIRST time pumping!
It's only a few drops each time I pump, but they said they'd put a little on their finger for Amelia to feed her if I could produce some. Not bad for a c-section at 32 weeks! Maybe I won't have the supply issues I had with Sophia!
It makes me feel really good to know I'm able to care for my baby somehow even though I can't feed her or change her diapers or hold her yet.
