Babe, I know you are worried and will be until you hear more. You and your family are in my prayers tonight. 3 lbs is small but not for 7 1/2 months. All babies do the last 6 weeks is basically put on weight. The high BP may have slowed down development some but it sounds like they did all the right things for both baby and momma. Have a merry christmas and give thanks for this wonderful new life entrusted to your family.

the latest news on suzanne

the baby is breathing on her own, room air at that. so for now everything with the babe is looking up.

my granddaughter had some problems during the c section. epi. did not work so they had to put her out. she had an allergic reaction to it and was unable to move for about five hours. was just coming out of recovery at ten thirty pm.

so for the moment it is good news. thank you all for prayers and keep it up that all will be well

babe

A little over 3 pounds is a positive thing. Smaller babies have survived.

Wouldn't it be a nice thing if they called the baby, if it's a girl, Eve, for Christmas Eve? A boy? Evan. Just me thinking.

Best wishes to everyone.
the baby's name is georgia abigail. but u had a cute idea.

Congratulations on the the new addition!! What a wonderful Christmas gift!! Of course, she won't like it much when she is older. LOL
I love her name.
My son weighed 3 lbs, 14 oz when he was born 4 weeks early. He stayed in an incubator for 2 weeks just for warmth. He could not retain body temp, but, other than that, he was healthy. Babies are very strong. People don't realize how strong. Can't wait to see a picture.

Congrats..My prayers go to you and your family, especially the baby. One of my friends, she is a NICU nurse and helps with all the premies here at the primary childrens hospital here in utah. She is very good at her job and i know that ALL nurses who work in the NICU are just as good and they know what they are doing. These doctors are truly a gift from god. My cousin was born 4 months early and weighed 1.5 pounds. He is now almost a year and is doing GREAT. I was born two months early and was only 4 pounds. Now im 23 and ahh.. well i weigh alot more than 4 pounds

God bless and never ever give up!

you should send us pictures so we can see her.

Wow, so many stories about tiny, tiny babies. Anytime I happen to be at a pedi hospital, I always take a trip to the nursery and marvel at the tiny little babies that look no bigger than a doll. Isn't it wonderful we live in a time when these little ones aren't lost? Thankfully, none of my babies were preemies - I can't even imagine how frightening that must be for mom and dad. Babe, please let us know how little Georgia is doing and post pictures when you can.

Worked for a number of years in a pretigious children's hospital, and can tell you that a 30 week preemie who is breathing on its own has a very favorable prognosis.

Congrats on the lovely new girl member of your family
