Thanks ladies. I just updated again. I am sorry for not updating sooner, but it is so hard as I am constantly pumping or at the hospital or dealing with my kids. I am struggling really hard right now and I am just trying to keep myself busy with whatever I can.
My thoughts and prayers for that gorgeous little boy to be in his mama's arms. Im just devestated for you. I cannot imagine. You had no control over your GD, you did all that was expected and then some. try and be gentle on yourself, your little baby will need a nice strong mama when he comes home. Praying that it is any day now for you and HIM.
momma of 8 beautiful children now. Most recent is Jerry Jr. born 11/19/12 at 37wk, 7lbs 6oz and 19.5inches and Baby Reymundo born 10/7/13 at 35w6d, 6lbs 7oz, 19.5 inches. Momma of 5 angels. New siggy to come!
Just read your update. First of all, it is WONDERFUL that you are producing enough breast milk strictly pumping for him to be off formula! What a gift you are giving him! I'm sorry to hear he will be in the nicu longer than hoped for. I will be continuing to pray for him to gain the strength he needs to come home and be in your arms ALL DAY LONG! Huge hugs to you... I can't imagine how hard this must be right now, but it WILL get better. Just keep reminding yourself of that!

You and your little boy are in my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine how hard it would be to leave him there after each visit. I would break down too. Will be praying hard that you get to take him home soon!
I can't even imagining what you are going through right now. I think it's great that you are pumping so much that they don't have to supplement, good for you!
I'll pray that he gets to go home very soon.
I am praying for that sweet, adorable baby boy of yours. I hope he heals up quick and can come home soon! Don't beat yourself up.. You're a fantastic mom and have done, and are doing, everything you can possibly do for him.
As for the csection, mine sucked too, but walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Don't over do it, but laying around will make the recovery much harder and longer. I felt like my guts were gonna fall out too for the first couple weeks. My recovery wasn't as hard as some. A part of me kinda expected a csection, as much I denied it.
