Surprise!

So... about those cramps...

Our little lady decided to surprise us by arriving a few weeks early at 36 weeks + 5 days. She wanted to be a March baby & not an April one, it seems!

She is super chunky for a premmie bub (3.5kg at birth!) and is healthy and happy, after being on oxygen and monitoring after birth.

Unfortunately she has been in the Special Care Nursery since she was born, as she is having feeding issues (doesn't know how to suck or self feed) so I've been lonely here in hospital with no baby by my side. She's trying. So am I. Although, she's also now showing signs of jaundice, so might be a while for her to sort those issues out before we can come home.

Either way, we are totally smitten. All I want to do is eat those chubby cheeks!!

Meet Georgia. :)

More details to come soon - cross your fingers that we have some good luck feeding & growing!

CONGRATS! My 35w1d baby had some feeding issues too. He didn't have a suck or rooting reflex. He learned very quickly though, and thankfully we avoided a NICU stay. I'm sure your little lady will be a pro in no time!

CONGRATULATIONS! She is stunning! What a perfect little bundle! You sound like the whole thing has been a complete breeze (but I'm sure you'll fill us in on the details later). I'm so happy for you, and LOVE her name x

I've followed your journey since WB and I wanted to say HUGE congratulations on Georgia's early arrival. May your next few weeks be happy, and full of good sleeping and feeding.

Love the name, love the baby! She is absolutely 100 percent perfection in a diaper! Well done to you and your husband. May her stay in the special unit be brief and may she learn to feed well really soon so that she can go home with her Mommy and Daddy. Her arrival is the best news ever!

Emily said...

Congrats! She's adorable. My mom had the same thing with me (I think I was a week early?). She thought they were BH and/or it'd take hours for her to labor, so she barely got checked in to the hospital before I was born!

Chrispygal said...
