Quoting BrandyJ#3:" Any updates??"


Saturday she has her first bath and will get one every other day. She is breathing really well on her own with just pressure. She started feeding yesterday 2-3 CC and today they are not giving her anymore b/c she isnt digesting all of it so they are waiting until her belly empties and go from there. Shes doing really well.

Don't get yourself too worked up because that won't help anyone. Chances of survival are really good at 32 weeks and even better after 34. Good luck mama!

That's great she's doing so well. Once feeding really picks up things seem to get even better!
Question though, are they doing full on baths every other day? They would only do on about every 3-4 days or more for DD because it burns up a lot of calories. Just wondering if you are talking a little sponge bath or full on bath.

Oh nooo :/ I'm so sorry, just think positive honestly its so hard I know but its really the only thing you can do my advice is just if you start feeling any worse go to the E.R cuz it's def. nothing to mess with. But they'll take good care of you and 32 weeks is better thatn 28-31 and each week is better and better :) good luck mommy
