Hi guys :)

Thanks for all the love and support. C and the babies are doing well. Avery is tiny, but looks so big after seeing Quinn. Then I see the babies under the billi lights in the nursery, and she looks tiny again! hah! They'll probably go home tomorrow or Tuesday.  Quinn is staying in the NICU for a bit. She was only 3lbs5oz when born, but other than the IUGR is healthy. This makes me count my blessings we went with a MFM and not a regular OB since I don't know if they would have done as many ultrasounds, monitoring sessions, etc. She dropped off from being neck and neck with Avery at 31 weeks to barely growing in the next month. But, she's healthy so far aside from her size, and already taking nipple feeds (up to 6 cc per feed today). As long as she tolerates them well (no breathing or heart rate issues), they'll increase it 3 cc per 12 hrs. She's in an isolette right now to keep her temp up so all her calories can go to growing, and should move to an open air crib sometime after 3.5 lbs. 

And here are a couple of pics...I can't figure out how to PIP on my mac, sorry - please don't comment on the photos - not all the family has gotten the link yet (waiting on email addresses!)

Re: hi!

  • Congrats again on your beautiful girls, Emily. I'm so happy for you and C. I hope Q has just a short Nicu stay and gains quickly. Glad to hear Avery is doing well with nursing.

    Love the pictures! And look at A's (I think Smile) hair! They are both so sweet. Congratulations again! I am so glad that C and both girls are doing well. It's great that C and A will be going home very soon and I hope Q will be joining shortly. I am so thankful that she sounds perfectly healthy and is just tiny. Hopefully she will grow quickly!
