    Default 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!

    Oh my ... I remember that being like the only thing on my mind for a few days after a surgery. It's seriously uncomfortable during recover, I'm sure. Keep up with the softeners!

    Also, I love to hear that you've been able to pump. Gosh these mammal bodies of ours are amazing!!

    Congrats again! I am so glad the boys are doing so well. This is fabulous news! As for #2, I ended up taking a fiber supplement. I cannot remember what it is called. They will not give it to you at the hospital, but my perinatalogist recommended that I get it as soon as I got home. Who knows if that did the trick or the build up of everything else I took at the hospital.
