I started having complications with my pregnancy when I was 31 weeks with a placenta previa and bleeding. Last thursday while I was in the hosptial my placenta ruptured and I was blessed to have my doc and and another wonderful doc rush me into surgery. I had to get 2 pints of blood but since I had steriods to develop the babies lungs he came out breathing fine at 33 weeks. I had a huge scare Sunday after I got home from the hospital my pulse rate went to 175. I am on a beta blocker now and my beautful little boy, husband , and me are now home. I couldn't have asked for a better Xmas present. Since he only weighs 4 lbs and premature we are having to feed him since he hasn't deveolped his sucking skills. I hope everyone has a wonderful Xmas.

Congratulations to you and your husband Jen on the safe arrival of your precious son.
I am glad you got taken care of so competently, phew, and it is so good that he is well. You rest up well now whenever you can as little babies are very tiring and you need to get over the birth. Have a lovely holiday with much happiness.

Many hugs
Clare

Congratulations Jen!! :eleph:

What wonderful news for Christmas.

It must have been pretty scary at times but it sounds like you had excellent care and all the worry seems so unimportant when we have that great gift of life with us at the end.

I hope you have a great Christmas - a restful one!

Congratulations Jen!!!

What a wonderful Christmas present...although scary at the same time!
I am glad you are all doing well, my best wishes you continue to do so.

I gave birth prematurely in May to a tiny baby boy...he is now crawling around my living room and giggling with delight :)

Take care,
Sharon

I'm glad to hear everything went well. Our youngest daughter was born on the 24th of December. It was a great experience. Because she was our second, we were much more relaxed. We almost had the whole hospital to ourselves (It was a OBY/GYN hospital and I think Eye Institute). So it was a lot more fun.

When she was younger she was excited about her birthday because "it was before Jesus' birthday". She just turned 13, so she doesn't say that anymore. It was cute though.l

Enjoy your son as I'm sure you will.
