Just a chick trying to figure out life. These are my confessions.

So there I am! Living it up in my 30-somethings with a ridiculously hot hubby, 3 seriously outgoing matter-of-fact smart beautiful kids, a cat named Roxii that just won't quit, 2 chihuahuas named Lokii (what was I thinking) and Brodii who don't understand the concept of pee outside.

I'm a strongly opinionated, outspoken, inappropriate and absolutely unapologetic chick going through this thing called life and trying to do it with my sanity intact. So far, this isn't working out so well!

Follow me as I confession myself straight to the LCBO. My rants, my way...you've been warned ;) Xo

I want to eat her...

I love bath night. I love weigh in night. Tonight...was both! :) She always does this little ballerina pose when she gets nekkid and it's hilarious. I was kissing her head and decided that I should just smuggle her out of the NICU cause she's so damn adorable.

As per usual dad would not touch her (nor did he take pictures) during bath time, that was all mom. Then I got to put her leads for her monitors back on and dress her all up etc. Of course before her bath was her weigh in and little miss porkchop is now 1322g (2lbs 14.6oz or 2.91lbs). She is definitely over OTMH's cut off which is 1250g-1300g so we are good to go. We are still waiting on a bed at this point but I'm not sweating it. Mac is a fabulous place so I know we are still in great hands. Not that when we get to OTMH we won't be, just that it'll be a beginner process for us all over again. We've also found out that no visitors apart from parents, grandparents and siblings are allowed to visit while she's in the SCU there so that kind of sucks but all in all I think she'll be home sooner than later if she continues on her wonderful path.

She is now up to a big 17ml's of formula every 2 hours without issues. We, as always, love that. A little over half an oz of formula every 2 hours is great. I can't wait until she bottle feeds which SHOULD be attempted sometime next week I would assume but it could be a little later than that. She still has to have sodium supplementation for awhile longer, still on max caffeine for the apnea/bradycardias and she's on Poly Vi Sol which is a vitamin of sorts.

She is scheduled for an eye test next Monday, her head ultrasound again and I think that's all the testing being done. I FINALLY managed to get a length for her too and she's a 15.5inch worm, I love it. She sits in the 3rd percentile I think for growth at this point (remember she's an IUGR baby) but we are hoping to start closing that gap up sooner than later. She is still only 1 day behind in her IUGR dates and then we will work on the rest of the gap.

Will check in tomorrow and let you know if we found a bed for her yet, otherwise it'll be another night at Mac. If in the event we are still there it's just a typical cuddle night, no bathing or weighing in to my knowledge...until then!
