Shes doing great!
Sorry I havent been on in awhile to post! Things were pretty hectic and starting to settle alittle. Brielle was born June 1 at 8:52pm by emergeancy C section. She weighed 1.66 lbs and was 12" long. I started to have contractions around 12 Tuesday. They called my Dr. who said that it was possibly an infection starting to set it. They were going to watch her heart rate and if it went above 170 that meant infection. Also were going to watch my temperature to go up meant I had an infection. About 7 my contractions were really bad and about 3-4min apart. By about 8 my Dr was here and we were on our way to the c-section. I was so scared. It was too early!!!! When I woke up from surgery, Heather E the nurse that was here the night my water broke was still in recovery with me. It was nice to atleast see a familiar face. She has gone thru the whole 3 weeks with us as well as SO many other nurses that I just adore for all their hard work and dedication to helping us thru these 4 weeks! I asked Heather how she was doing and she said great! Just hearing those words was so nice! She said she had really good color and weighed 1.66lbs. They took me back to our room and my family was calmer as well. They said that the NICU nurses all came out smiling and even stopped for a brief moment so they could all see her since she was doing so well. What a relief!!!! She is definately a trooper!! NICU said she is fiesty! Which is a good thing!! She wrapped her tiny little fingers around Joshs finger yesterday for the first time. She knows his voice and starts to wiggly when he talks. She was wearing Joshs wedding rings as a bracelet! It was so big on her!! She has been on room air! So miraculous for her gestation! She was born at 24 wks 2 days. So far she is beating all the odds! Nurses said shes doing wonderful and I will try to update daily on her progress! Thank you to everyon for all the love and support!!! We cant thank the nurses, NICU, & doctors here enough!!! We not only gained a daughter out of this but we gained a whole new family!!
