Hi Everyone,
I hope everyone is surviving the heat!!!!

Just wondering if anyone else has had their baby yet as I wanted to contact other mums with prems.

Elizabeth Catherine was due on the due on the 5th of February but decided to make her entrance on the 2nd of January at 35 weeks and 1 day.

She is doing really well. She had 2 days of antibiotics as a precaution because I had a high temperature (or so they tell me because I felt fine) so she has already had her drip taken out after 2 days and was taken off her monitor after 3 days. Now it's just a matter of waiting for her to be able to feed herself every feed and gain some weight. Fingers crossed that won't take too long and she can come home soon.

Hi jacqg

I take it you aren't in the facebook group? There have been three arrivals so far, 29th Nov, 16 Dec and 25 Dec - 2 girls and a boy.

Congrats on the arrival of Elizabeth Catherine - such a lovely name. I love more traditional names and it sounds as if she is going really well too.

Can you PM me with your facebook details? There is a spot where I can 'add person to group' but when I click it, it says you will still require admin approval to join - can't remember who that is though, but I can at least get you on the list.

Congrats to those who have had bub arrive so far. I'm 34.5 weeks and nothing yet except a big bub inside.
All the best for Elizabeth and the others. I hope they all make it home quickly
