Congrats! What a beautiful baby boy. He is such a good size.

My twins are NICU grads! If you need anything PM me and be sure to take care of you too.

Thank you everyone! We are expecting him to be in the NICU for at least a week. The next few days will tell us more. I started pumping but he will not be able to "feed" for a few days. When he is able to eat it will be through a feeding tube.

I hope you get to take him home soon! Will they let you do some kangaroo care? Might make both of you feel really good! (basically leaving all the tubes etc attached but letting him be skin to skin with you - it's been proven to help premiees with temp regulation, weight gain - all that good stuff)
