Default It's a Girl!!!

My firstborn arrived Saturday morning (3 weeks early) and caught us totally unexpected. We were planning on getting the house organized and cleaned in preparation for her arrival next week, but apparently she could not wait. She is currently in a progressive care unit due to some fluid still in her lungs, mild jaundice and digestion problems, but she is making positive progress and we hope to have her home by Christmas. Mom is doing well, the birth was C-section and she is already up and around.

Even though they keep telling us she is doing well, it's hard to see your newborn attached to an IV and oxygen and all sorts of censors, we are trying to focus on the positive.

Stats: Eliza Jane, 18.5 inches, 5pounds 6 ounces and a healthy set of lungs (she already has SWMBO's Jersey attitude).

Hey man, congrats on your little one!

I went through the same exact thing when my second one was born 2 months premature. She was in the Neonatal ICU for 10 long days and it was by far the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with. Today she is an honor student and the absolute love of my life. When they let you in the room with her--tell her she'll be fine and you can't wait to get her home!

If you need to BS with someone--I've been there. PM me.
