Ok... so I'm running a bit behind, but I wanted to update while I have a minute. Amelia Renae was born on May 30, 2013 @ 9:01pm. She weighed in at 6lb 9oz and was 18.5in long. A last minute game change allowed me (and DH) to be in the delivery room. I was actually helping with the delivery and DH was up in the "baby corner" so he couldn't see "stuff" LOL. The birth mother held her and then gave her to me to nurse (yep, for those that don't know, I induced lactation to be able to feed this LO just like my previous 3 children). Then the nurse bathed her and I gave her back to the birth mother to hold for a little while. 2 hours after she was born Amelia was placed in my arms and she hasn't left since!! We have 5 more days to go in the mandatory waiting period and on day 11 we are all going out to dinner to the restaurant we first went to when M told me she wants us to have the baby!
Amelia had to spend 2 nights in the hospital bc of her gestational age (she was 4 weeks early). Then at her 48hr f/u her bill levels had skyrocketed, so we got put back in the hospital for her to spend 15 hours under the lights. Somewhere along the way they determined that she has a persistent heart murmur so we had to go today for an echo which we hope to get the results of tomorrow.
And now... for the fun part!!!!

Congratulations! She is perfect!

Hopefully the echo comes out to be minor.

Well, we got the results of Amelia's echo yesterday. Turns out she has 2 VSDs and 1 PFO. The PFO is undoubtably due to her being 4 weeks early. The 2 VSDs are most likely genetic as her birth mother has a murmur. I got a little irritated when I called to ask about history or murmur and was told "geez, I'm sorry I forgot that one d**n thing!". Uh... forgetting that you had a childhood allergy to strawberries is one thing... but forgetting that you have a heart defect??? Oh well, moving on! The pediatrician is certain that the PFO will close on its own within a few weeks. Amelia will need to be seen by a pediatric cardiologist in a few months unless her symptoms increase. Unfortunately, she isn't getting enough calories from BFing to compensate for her high heart rate and she is now trying 1/2 newborn formula, 1/2 breastmilk. If this still isn't enough she will have to go on 100% formula so that we can assure the number of calories. I was devastated with that plan of care, but when faced with the fact that my daughter has 3 holes in her heart I guess what she feeds on is a minor issue!

First of all, huge congratulations! She is adorable! Second of all, I'm glad you got some solid answers regarding her heart (even if they weren't the answers you were hoping for). At least now you know exactly what you are dealing with and have a plan of action. Way to go mom! Sounds like Amelia is in great loving hands!

Aw. Congrats on a perfect little peanut! I'm sorry to hear about her heart issues, but hopefully they'll resolve or never really effect her. I know how you feel about the breast feeding - I have to supplement because my milk hasn't come in. But as long as it keeps baby healthy, that's all that matters.

Congrats again
