My cute baby girl! Mom went up with me last night to see her grandbaby, and we got some more great photos.
Meghan nursed for about 20 minutes until she had a little heartrate drop, so I stopped. Then she was too tired to bottle feed, so they just put it thru the gavage tube. I still plan to go up for one or two feedings a day, but I think I'm not going to nurse, just bottle feed. She's not getting much milk from nursing, only a few cc's, then she's too tired to bottle feed. Yesterday I guess she took 30 cc's from a bottle once, and 18 another time, so she does a lot better on the bottle. The nurse said a lot of preemies go home on the bottle and mom's pump or formula feed. I plan to keep the pump for a while and just bottle feed or nurse a little once she comes home, but if nursing makes her too sleepy for a bottle and she's not getting enough milk, I don't think it is benefiting her much. I'll talk to the nurse about it. The main thing is that no matter how she eats it, she's getting my milk and not formula, that will help her so much in the long run.
Brendan is going to his Grandparent's house today (Scott's parents) and Scott and I are going up to see her then going to work on moving furnature in her room. We need to move the dresser out of Brendan's room b/c it goes with the crib and has a changing pad spot on it, and we got him a new big bookshelf (he has drawers under his bed for clothes, doesn't need a dresser.) He saw the shelf downstairs and loved it, he thought it was very fun to climb on so we will need to keep a close eye on him LOL.
Scott's birthday is tomorrow. We're going out to eat with his parents, then my parents are taking us out on Saturday. X men opens tomorrow too, we might go see it during the day. And of course we will go visit our baby girl, maybe Scott's parents will join us.
