After a few days of rest I feel like a new woman. I still can’t do much but at least I don’t get woke up every couple of hours to take my blood pressure. The babies are 10 days old today.
Update on Babies:
Maggie: She is the most stable and has tried to come off of oxygen. She was off for almost 12 hours and then went back to room air. We are proud of her doing so well. She weighs 2lbs 8 ounces now and feeds 6cc every four hours. She opens her eyes the most.
Easton: His heart is enlarged just a little, has a PDA, and his left ventricles acts funny some times. This is nothing that the doctors are going to treat since it is so mild. He weighs 2lbs and 10 ounces now. He just started eating with 1cc every 4hours. He is on room air.
Hartley: She has had two brady events today (where they stop breathing and the nurse has to touch her to get her to start again) which is every common for preemies. I hate that she has had two in one day. She weighs 2lbs 6 ounces now. She is eating 6cc every 4 hours. She wont be the runt of the bunch for long with eating that much! She is on room air.
Allie-She is off the billie lights for jaundice (she has been going back and forth each day) She weighs 2lbs 6 ounces. She eats 3cc every 3 hours.
Ella-She failed her newborn screening so we have to get this retested. The doctors think they didn’t get enough specimen. No big deal. She weighs 2lbs 9ounces and eats 3cc every 3 hours.
Overall these are minor issues that will fix themselves over time. The doctor thinks Hartley, Allie, and Ella are identical. We will get the results in about 3 weeks. Which is why we only saw twins, then triplets, then quads, then quints in the ultrasound.
Well that is all for now!
