    Default one month old...updated to add pics #8

    So my.boys turned one month old on saturday! They are growing, a little slower than they would like but growing.

    They have them both On full feeds, which is close to 1 oz.every 3 hours, they attempt to nipple feed them about 1 a shift, more if they have the energy for it, the rest through a NG tube. They aré both on the human milk fortifier, and dominic is on some oil stuff too i cant remembr what its called but its gross.tasting from what they say.

    They were taken off the.caffine on saturday and they havent.been having too many epidodes since being weaned off

    They.aré both breathing on their own

    They aré both freeystyle of IVs

    Adrick is up 6.5 oz from his BW
    Dominic is up 9 oz from BW


    They both need to be able to.learn to nipple all of their feeds, and need to transition to an.open crib as well as maintain their.body temp and still gain some weight.before they come home.

    they have told me that they will likely come home before thier edd, maybe a Few weeks before...i am gettin super anxious i cant help.myself....i feel like once Nov 1 rolls around i am going to go crazy, i dont see them coming home earlier than then, as we aré already at 10th and still have some obstacles to over.come. i am just going a little crazy now that we are almost mid oct... i need time to.fly

    tomorrow is.my DS1 3rd bday, we are Taking him to see.his.brothers and some.shopping...it will be fun!!

    It sounds like those boys are making some great progress! I hope they build the strength to reach their release milestones in the next few weeks.

    You also sound like you have it together ... impressive!

    I was the same way, the NICU gets mad if you are late because they have them on a strict schedule so I was mad of we weren't 10 mins early for when we wanted to be there. It sounds like the boys are doing great and I'm excited to hear they are home safe and sound.It'll be here sooner then you think and the sleep depriviation will start!

    Happy 3rd Birthday to your son as well.

    Glad to hear they are doing pretty well and will most likely get to come home before their due date! Definitely share some pics, and hope your ds had a great bday!

    Sounds like you are doing wonderful...and the boys are progressing great!! Before 10 days ago I wouldn't have understood all about what you were discussing, but now as another "NICU" mom I undertand it all!

    I am also "neurotic" about getting there on time. Our NICU has very open visiting policy (I can be there as long as I want, but not allowed to sleep) so I spend about 14 hours there every day.

    November 1st sounds like a realistic date...so exciting to be preparing to bring them home. Does it look like they will come home together?

    Hope DS had a great birthday!!!

    Do you have photos of your handsome boys?!
