I am sitting in the hospital waiting room while my daughter is in labor! I am grateful to be able to read 3fc posts instead of stress eating from dh's bag of candy. I am grateful for the touch dh gave me for christmas. Now if i can just figure out how to capitalize letters in the middle of the sentence.

This would be a long day without 3fc. I have come to think of you all as my friends and wanted to share. I am excited!

Eliana has a good point about pictures a picture when my last grandchild was a newborn was a wakeup call for me. I will have to use that as a before and after picture!

Congrats! Have you tried to hold the letter to capitalize it?

01-28-2010, 02:29 PM
Awww, I think that would be some of the most awesome before and after pics ever!

01-28-2010, 02:29 PM
Yay! Congratulations!

Also, just think how much you have learned during this journey and now you can help your daughter get the baby weight off when she's ready.

Do we have a healthy mom and baby? Keep us posted! :hug:

Do we have a healthy mom and baby?

Thanks for asking. Mom is doing well. The baby is struggling and is in intensive care. She passed her first meconium while still in the womb and they think that she swallowed some. She won't eat, even when they drop milk in her mouth with a dropper or put it on a pacifier. Her blood sugar got too low so they have her on a drip. She has a tube in her stomach and is on oxygen. They also think she may have an infection so have put her on antibiotics. I got to see her yesterday but not today. Scary stuff but have to have confidence that the doctors know what they are doing.

I'm sorry that your granddaughter is having such a rough start. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers. Does she have a name yet?

01-29-2010, 10:25 PM
prayers for your grandbaby - hope she's healthy and home very soon!

01-29-2010, 11:32 PM
I worried when we didn't get the big post. I am sorry to hear about what's going on! Your family is definitely in my prayers! Was the little one full term? We had some trouble with my second DD and that feeling going home from the hospital not pregnant and without a baby was horrible. The nurses weren't the nicest and my hormones were going nuts. I was pretty upset. To them, her problems were very common and normal, but to me it was the world. I am sure all will be fine. It's just hard in the interim. The doctors can do some pretty amazing things. Sending lots of hugs!

Oh my goodness, how scary. My prayers are with that sweet baby.

01-30-2010, 07:14 AM
I'm praying as well. Keep us posted when you can so we can know how she is doing.

01-30-2010, 08:06 AM
Your grandchild is in my prayers - your familly too. I am praying she will soon be perfectly well. Hugs to you all.

Oh Cheryl, I am just seeing this now....

I can't imagine what you are all going through. I just know that there is going to be good news and soon. :hug:
