Preemie List

Tina had a great suggestion to make a sticky with our preemie's info on it so new moms can see the differences in gestational ages, what each baby went through, and if they had any questions but didn't feel comfortable posting a general question they could PM the individual instead Smile If you feel there should be anything else let me know and I'll add it Smile

Preemie's Name: Gabriella Rose
Due Date: February 27, 2004
Actual Birthday: January 7, 2004
Born At What Gestation: 32 weeks
Reason For Premature Birth: I had pre-eclampsia and HELLP Syndrome
Medical Difficulties Preemie Indured: The normal stuff most preemies have like jaundice, keeping her body temp up, apnea and brady's. She also had a premature gut. We didn't know it at the time. All we knew was they were feeding her via ng tube (tube in nose) 1 cc of EBM and they would get back 3 cc's of bilious residual. They did daily x-rays, she had a PIC line, she got lots of antibiotics, she had an upper and a lower GI study. They thought she had NEC, a malrotation, piloric stenosis, and a few other horrible things that I can't remember anymore. She was poked and prodded every single day UNTIL one day they finally realized her gut was just premature and she needed time to continue to grow. They kept her NPO for almost 2 months and then finally started her back with teeny tiny doses of EBM via ng tube. She was able to keep it down with no residual AND she finally pooped!!! They increased her feedings and in a matter of 1 week she was up to 2 ounces of EBM via bottle and pooping regularly.
Legnth Of Stay In NICU: She was in the NICU until right before her due date, February 24th, 2004 (7 weeks)
How Are They Doing Now? She's doing great now! She's 19 months old, 25 pounds, climbing, running, some talking, lots of playing and getting in to trouble. She's my little angel!!

HI there - new to this board....

Preemie's Name: Fiona
Due Date: January 22nd, 2003
Actual Birthday: December 15th, 2002
Born At What Gestation: 34 weeks, 5 days
Reason For Premature Birth: Docs never figured out why, but my water broke and I went into labour
Medical Difficulties Preemie Indured: She had trouble breathing and needed surfactant in her lungs - she had to move from our local hospital to a tertiary care hospital because she needed that level of care. She had some apnea spells in the beginning (first few days)
Legnth Of Stay In NICU: 20 days
How Are They Doing Now? Fantastic! She is quite the character - just saw her 4 year old boy cousin today for easter and they are the same height! She was a big baby - 19 inches, 5lbs, 14 oz.

Preemie's name: Jamie (James)
Due Date: June 28, 2008
Actual Birthday: May 29th, 2008 (woohoo! I kept this kid in a whole 8 days longer! ;))
Reason for premature birth: Doc still doesn't know why. I was off work (supposed to be bedrest) at 30 weeks and my cervix was nice and tight all the way to my last doc appointment on May 27th. Once again, my water broke and I went into labour (way faster this time....from water breaking to birth was 1 hour 25 minutes!)
Medical difficulties: other than being overstimulated by his big sister on the first day and needing to be left alone in his isolet for the next 24 hours, he was fine. They kept testing for jaundice, but nothing. He took to breastfeeding once we got a good nurse who let me try to get comfortable vs just whipping him away within the first 5 minutes of failed attempts. No breathing issues this time.
Length of stay in the NICU: 8 days
How are they doing now? Fantastic. 10.5 months old, crawling, pulling up, generally causing havoc. He was 6lbs 6oz at birth and is now about 21lbs.

Due Date: March 14th, 2005
Actual Birthday: February 15th, 2005
Born At What Gestation: 36weeks 1day
Reason For Premature Birth: water broke
Medical Difficulties Preemie Indured: Jaundice and feeding difficulties (she needed a feeding tube for several days).
Legnth Of Stay In NICU: she didn't have to be transferred to NICU thankfully but she did stay for 8days in the special care nursery
How Are They Doing Now? Great - she is 14months old now and can I say - wow! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed. She isn't walking yet on her own but she has started to push herself along with her walker. She's also started drinking from a cup in the last month which has been a major accomplishment - even drinking from a straw which took Joel (our middle child) forever to do. She seems very much like a normal 14month old except perhaps a bit on the small side (she is about 9kg now which is equal to about 20lb).
