Preemie's Name: Olivia
Due Date: April 5, 2007
Actual Birthday: Jan 3, 2007
Born At What Gestation: 26 weeks, 5 days
Reason For Premature Birth: absolutely no idea why - had a perfect pregnancy up until 5 days before she was born, had Braxton Hicks - like contractions, started on Brethine, sent home (no cervical changes), 4 days later started having cramp like contractions & bloody show; exam revealed that my amntiotic sack was hourglassing - half in uterus & half in birth canal, ultrasound showed I was 3 cm dilated & cord was prolapsed which resulted in emergency C-section 10 minutes later
Medical Difficulties Preemie Indured: Only major complication was PDA ligation - surgery to fix PDA; was on ventilator 2 weeks then CPAP for several weeks before switch to nasal cannula, had PICC line for IV nutrition for a few weeks the NG/OG feeds for several weeks, had a few blood transfusions, ROP stage 2 - all in all not bad for a baby born her age!!
Legnth Of Stay In NICU: 92 days, was discharged on her due date!
How Are They Doing Now? Good so far - been home for 6 weeks. Her cardiologist has signed off so all is well since her heart surgery, her ROP has cleared so we don't see eye doc for another year. Came home w/o oxygen or any monitors. She is on meds for reflux & thicked BM for aspiration. Hoping that the aspiration resolves soon so we can try to BF again! She's doing everything a baby of her adjusted age should be doing!!
