Friday, 36 weeks

Meghan is now 36 weeks gestational age.  She'll be 7 weeks old on Sunday.  Sh's been doing good on her feedings except her midnight one last night, she kept having heartrate drops and ended up only taking 40 cc's.  She also lost weight last night, 4 grams whichisn't a lot, but still.  however, the nurse said Meghan had a big poop just before herweigh in so that may have contributed to the weight loss :-) 

They are going to do that study on her, starting on Monday.  The good news is that after she does the study they don't make her wait the 7 days, they will just send her home on a monitor if needed or medication depending on the results.  So, hopefully that means she will be home next week.  My baby brother was sent home on a monitor, and I was 14 at the time so I remember it pretty well.  it's kind of a pain to drag around, but at least it will offer us peace of mind.  I'll probably sleep better without feeling the need to wake up and look at her every few minutes to make sure she's OK.  But we'll have to wait for the results.
