my daughter was born nov 4th by emergency c-section.
my ob sent me for a growth ultrasound at 32 weeks, said she was tiny and he wanted another, so at 34 weeks i had another one and it showed she did not grow what so ever from 32-34 weeks. he told me to go to the hospital i had Placenta Insufficiency and that i would be delivering that day, or in 2 week, he wanted to hold off till i was 36 weeks, by the time i got to the hospital ( a 10 minute drive) my ob had called the big childrens hospital who told him the baby needed to be out as slowed blood flow and nutrients are not good and she can get brain damage.
so at 108pm my daughter was born weighing 4.5lbs and 18.7 inches long.. the first time i seen her in the nicu was horrible it was hard to see her through all the tubes and wires and cpap breathing machine! at 2 days old she was diagnosed with a PDA and 3 months she was diagnosed at Toronto Sick Kids with failure to thrive and ngtube was placed, at 7 (wont take a bottle or sippy cup) so her next surgery is for a G-Tube sept 10th
i am so happy i have found this community! thank you for making it!!!
hoping to hear from members soon :) how are your babies doing?
