quick update on my boys (xp)

Hi all! just wanted to pop in and give a quick update on my boys! they are both doing ok for their age, they are both now on vents, which was expected, and they both have the umbilical line, where they are getting their nutrition. I started pumping yesterday and have been getting a decent amount of colustrum (avg 15cc) per session. we are not allowed to hold them yet, but have been able to touch them through their incubators. the nicu nurses here are amazing, the boys have a good grip when they grab on to their fingers, the nurses also so they are very active for their age.... I am recovering ok, my OB did a great job on surgery...in some pain of course and (tmi) and really hoping to go #2 soon, havent went for a while and im starting to bloat! lol...but for the most part my boys are doing as well as they are expected for gestational age,hoping they come off the vents soon, im sure we have a long road ahead of us, my boys seem like fighters!

Thank you so much for the update! I have to admit I check back a couple of times a day, just to see if there's an update. My heart just goes out to you, your family, and boys. The fact that they are fighters is just great! What did the nurses and doctors say to expect going forward?

I know what you mean about a BM and ugh right? It'll happen, but such a relief when it does Smile lol. I hope you have a speedy recovery!
