OH he is so sweet congrats!!!My Aidan was a premie too he was 8 weeks early only 3 pounds 5 ounces but today he is 2 years old and giving me quite a run for my money!!!!

Oh, my thoughts are with you! He's so beautiful! All babies lose a little weight after they're born, preemie or not, so hopefully he'll gain it all back and then some!

Congratulations! And Aiden (spelling var) is my brother's name, and one of my favorites! :thumbsup:

He is a big preemie! My daughters both lost a little after birth, too. He's a cutie and I love the name! Hope you both starting doing well soon!

Carmell, he is beautiful! Many babies lose weight after birth, it just seems like it is more because he started off so small. I will think of you and send you my best wishes that he can be home with you and the rest of the family soon. Take care and congratulations!!

He is adorable. Hope he starts gaining weight soon. Our little Ben is only 12 lbs 5oz now and he is almost six months old but he is improving weekly. Take care of yourself and get as much rest as you can.

Ohhh, what a doll baby! He's precious! Congratulations to you, DH, and the rest of the family! :heart:

Hi KoolBreeze:

Having been a preemie myself (2lbs 4 oz and 10 weeks early) and my best friend's baby having been early (6 weeks and 4lbs) I can say with almost certainty if he is 5 lbs and has no breathing issues, they will more than likely schedule a car seat test (you will need to bring the seat to the hospital and they will hook him up for a while--anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours--to make sure he is not going to stop breathing or have any type of difficulty) and he will be discharged hopefully fairly quickly!

He is a gorgeous baby and very big for a prem! Congrats!

CONGRATULATIONS :cheering: :happydance: :cheering: He is beautiful :thumbsup:

07-23-2006, 12:04 PM
Congratulations and I hope he is home soon! I will pray that God will bless you both--he is very beautiful! :) :heart:

Hey Congratulations Carmell!! He's a beauty--and he doesn't even look like a preemie!!

(And I know you're not feeling too good either, Hon...but you know, after the happy crew you have already, that it's gonna get a bit better every day!!)

I'm so thankful you're both okay, and that the wee one will be home soon!! I know the papa is bursting with pride about his boy!!

07-24-2006, 12:58 AM
What a blessing to have a sweet little baby boy! (I had 3)

I'll be praying for both of you, as well as your family. Get some rest while you can, and don't forget to breathe!

What a doll!!! :thumbsup: I went to KY to see my nephew who was born 7/20/06. We went through the St. Louis area on the way back home.

Do you have electricity? We thankfully missed the storm Fri cause we went through Indy.

I will keep your Aidan in my prayers :pray:

07-24-2006, 03:02 PM
thank you everybody for your prayers and thoughts! i just got back from my "visit" and he is eating and gaining weight but still in an isolate. he passed his car seat test last week before he went to the NICU. and yes we have electricity. ours never went out. but my mother still doesn't have any.

07-24-2006, 03:10 PM
Congratulations! What a cutie. :heart:
I hope you get to bring him home soon. You and yours, will be in my thoughts and prayers.

He's adorable Carmell, I pray he is well and at home as soon as possible. One of my granddaughters was born premature(4lbs, 2oz, 19" long), she gave us a couple of scares(SID's episodes) before we could get her home also. We had to bring her home on a monitor, but she was taken off of it in less than a month. Now she is 11, going on 21 :rollseyes: , and is "healthy as a horse". I hope your precious boy is home being spoiled with love p.d.q.!
