    Default 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 If you feel there should be anything else let me know and I'll add it

    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!!

    Preemie's Name: Jimmy
    Due Date: 8/20/97
    Actual Birthday:6/21/97
    Born At What Gestation: 31 wks
    Reason For Premature Birth:PROM and my "abnormal uterus"
    Medical Difficulties Preemie Indured: He was on oxygen for 5 days. He had 2 spinal taps to rule out menigitis.
    Legnth Of Stay In NICU: 34 days
    How Are They Doing Now? He is a happy 3 rd grader. He has developement delays and is hearing impaired. I can NOT stress enough that if your child is born early and put on oxgyen for ANY amount of time or given ANY antibotics they need a hearing test near their 1rst birthday even if they pass the newborn hearing screen.
