Lo Hicimos!

Feeling much better today. Sleeping in my own bed, being able to shower and feel like a person again probably helped a great deal. Even better seeing my little guy this morning, breathing on his own with no tubes! He is amazing. He is my world, and he is a strong little man. I can't believe he was inside me only a few days ago. This perfectly formed little person.. Amazing.. He's doing very well for a preemie. Today we might even get to do kangaroo care. I can't wait.

I'm already starting to feel a bit like a dairy cow, but I love every second of it because I'm making food for my baby. He's digesting the breastmilk really well, even though I can't breastfeed him just yet, he's drinking it through a tube and doing great with it.

Labour was about 20 hours long, for most of it I had no idea I was in labour, yeah it hurt and everything, but I thought it must be braxton hicks. I went to work and did all my normal stuff. We even went to our first (and probably last) prenatal class. Haha all the while I was in labour. After 20 hours of drug-free labour and giving birth all I can think of is that song from Dora the Explorer at the end of each show "We did it!" (which coincidentally is the title of this post in spanish ;)

Glad you are fine. When he is going to get released?

Probably around 37 weeks if he continues this well. Before christmas I think since he is already 32 weeks. :) We can't wait.

Wow!!! Lily was 31.5 weeks too!!

I was shocked when I read your comment and thought that it couldn't be true!!

Welcome Skyler!

Lily was in for 3 weeks and it seems like he's following in her footsteps. I would get things together sooner than later Momma!

So cute!! If you need anything please let me know. The NICU isn't easy and if you want to chat or anything I'm here!
