Baby and Bili

We stayed in the bonding room in the NICU with Baby from Friday to Sunday afternoon. Her bili level was up again Monday morning so it was repeated at 6pm. It was down a little so, nothing was done differently. This morning, it was up again and so she is on the bili bed at home again.

Please just pray that she doesn't have to go back to the hospital again.

Our sweet angel baby was admitted into the NICU last night. She is doing much better today but we still need your thoughts and prayers. Thanks!

My heart is broken and I miss her so much.

UPDATE- Sweet Girl's doctor just called us and said that she is doing so well that they are moving her into an open crib in a bonding room. We can stay with her and I get to feed her again! I'm just so thrilled. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.

Angel Baby

It's A Girl!
Sweet Angel Baby Girl
born October 17, 2009
at 8:17 am
She weighed 7 lbs 7.4 oz
and was 19 1/2 inches long

We just got home today because Angel Baby had some little issues. She is fine though and I promise to come back and tell more. And post a picture. Blogger isn't allowing me to do that right now. If you are friends with me on Facebook there are pictures and real names (email me if you are not and want to know because I'm not hiding it from you, of course). She is named for two of her great-grandmothers- one of Blue's and one of mine.
I'm thinking of calling her Sweet Pea on the blog. I'm open to suggestions though.
P.S.- I'm so thrilled. Beyond. And so very in love.

We Have Take Off

I saw the doctors yesterday. The OB told me that I am 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. Well, she didn't tell me that I was 50% effaced, but I saw it on my chart. The one I have to carry with me until birthday.

THAT exam was not fun. But, I was so super thrilled that I'm making progress. She said that all of my contractions are actually doing something and this will make for an easier delivery. Whoopie for that!

Baby's weight is estimated at 6 pounds 7 ounces. I believe s/he might be 8 pounds or more, if we go to 40 weeks. I'm 36w3d today. 25 days until the due date. This is really happening!

Oh, My Blog!

I keep getting reprimanded for not blogging enough here. I don't really know why I don't as much- well, I do have more of a life than I did when I started- but I still have things to say. I want to redo the whole thing though. I don't really talk about fashion or makeup or celebs all the time anymore. I could. I don't know.

I don't want to quit blogging totally. Or at all. But, I don't really know my identity here anymore. I don't know how comfortable Blue is about me putting pictures of Baby here on the public blog. And, do I wanna become a "mommy blogger"? What is that exactly anyway? I'm certainly not qualified for that!

For now, I will keep updating about me-us-Blue, Baby and me. And the family. I don't know if anyone still reads here. I guess that doesn't really matter. I do wonder if you know anyone who could help me redo the blog? I'm just not into this header and stuff anymore. Or the wordings, etc.

And as for a personal update- I'm 32 weeks 6 days pregnant today. I'm tired, uncomfortable, achy, but oh so happy. I'm really ready to meet and hold (and hug and kiss) this sweet Baby. Today is my baby shower and I'm super excited to see everyone. And excited to eat yummy shower food- I love little sandwiches, cut up veggies and fruit, dip, cakes.

This week, I have my last planned appointment with the maternal fetal medicine doctor. They will check to see Baby's position and size. I am pretty sure s/he is head down and that s/he weighs 25 pounds and is 6 feet tall. But, I could be wrong! Just pray that s/he is still healthy and that we can stay pregnant for at least another two weeks.
