33 Weeks Gestation, 6 Weeks Old!

It was actually a pretty good day for all of the babes today! A good birthday present for me (tomorrow!) That's all I want for my birthday: healthy babies.

Sofia is still on high flow and tolerating her feedings. She is up to 3 pounds and 4 1/2 ounces and she wore her first outfit! Those preemie clothes fit nicely! Here are a couple of pics from today and yesterday.
Josephine (3 lbs and 4 ounces) was extubated today! She wasn't even extubated because they thought she was doing too good for the vent, she was extubated because she wasn't doing well. This morning she kept having really bad de-sats where she went to the 20's and it was hard to get her back up to the safe levels (85-100). They thought maybe there was something wrong mechanically so they tried her on SiPAP but had a new vent tube ready in case she failed. Well, we all think she just hated the vent, because she is doing very well on SiPAP! We hope she continues that way because we are so happy that none of our girls are on the vent! Josie also wore her first outfit on Sunday; unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me that day. Here are a couple of pics (vented and then with SiPAP). I only have two good ones of Josephine this entry, but oh well!

Madeline is still on high-flow like Sofia and she weighs 3 lbs 6 ounces. She's doing so well, it's hard to believe that a week ago she was still intubated! She is almost up to full feedings and will probably go back to my milk tomorrow. She can't go home on that formula, it's expensive! (Plus my milk is healthier, right?) Not much else to report; we just hope she continues on this path!

I hope everyone's week is going alright! Can you believe it's almost February? Time has been going by fast (and slow at the same time...don't know how that works!) Until later!


  1. Happy Birthday! One you are bound to never forget right? We continue to pray for you all and rejoice with the good news. No more vents is a tremendous accomplishment!

  2. Yay! Your girls are doing just great! So strong, getting so big. What a great accomplishment to have no more vents! Praying it stays that way!
