We have a lot to be thankful this year....

After 5 long days in the hospital, we are all finally home.

Baby is doing great & starting to eat on her own.

First day home


We got the ball rolling at 8:30am with water broke & epidural. I had a weird experience with the epidural this time around, the shakes, and one side completely numb and they put oxygen mask on me. Baby was showing signs of stress and they mentioned c-section to me if baby keeps on dropping down in heart rate. (freaked me out) baby finally was doing good and we delivered with three big pushes. Devry was born at 12:18 pm

Devry Anne Reeder

Born: 11.18.11


5lbs 8oz.


Poor baby has been in nicu since she was born. Since her birth weight was so low they ran checks for low blood sugar, a health baby is above 50 and hers was in the 30's so they took her to nicu to run iv and watch her blood sugars. Then she was having hard time keeping her body temp. up since she was so tiny and needed fat on her body. She wasn't eating very good from bottle so then they ran feeding tube. Doc said she is acting like 37 week old baby instead of a 39 week old and that she has low birth weight due to placenta deficiency. She is now breastfeeding and taking bottle at hospital and is more alert. She might be home for thanksgiving. This whole experience has been an eye opener and really makes me thankful that she is okay and health and there isn't any other problem. Her doc said it was good we got her out when we did or there could have been major problems. I will post some pictures of her when she gets home.
