Re : NICU studies

<t>My Ethan was a part of a study in our NICU, which apparently was being done jointly in many hospitals around the country. (this was in March 2004) It was a study on the effects of having babies breathe nitric oxide along with the oxygen they already get. We were approached a few days before his b...

Re : Slow weight gain

<t>Here's another mom of a micropreemie with the same situation! My Ethan will celebrate his first birthday next Tuesday, and his last weight check (2 weeks ago) was 13 lbs. 12 oz. He had only gained 6 ounces the previous month! We have been using Neosure and fortifying it to a 27 calorie/oz level, ...

Re : Feeding Problems

<t>Jen G. here! Your Meghan has very similar "statistics" to my youngest, Ethan (he was 27 weeks and 700 grams). He is 11 months now, adjusted to 8 months, and has just in the last few weeks really started to do well with solid foods. We started trying them around Thanksgiving, and he did the same t...

Re : Newish to the Forum

<t>Yet another Jen here, saying hi to the new Jen. I'm new here too, although my sister (meg) has told me about the forums for a long time. I too have 2 preemies due to PE, both boys, and I know EXACTLY how you feel: roller coaster of emotions, wondering why things had to turn out this way, etc. We ...

Ethan's visit to Developmental Peds

<t>Had our quarterly visit at the Medical University today, to see the developmental pediatrician in the "high risk clinic" where they follow up with preemies. Ethan is just a hair away from 11 mos. in chronological age, and just a hair away from 8 months adjusted. <br/> <br/> He did super today! Al...

Re : seeking general "how to" advice

<t>Don't really have much to add, just echoing what others (including my sis Meg) have said. I have a 3 1/2 year old DS who is most certainly high-needs and always has been. I remember those days of putting him in a booster seat on the floor right outside the shower, sprinkling the tray with Cheerio...

Re : Do I have it?

<t>Jackie,<br/> I ditto what other ladies have said about making sure doctors take you and your concerns seriously, listening to you, etc. The OB I had for my first pregnancy DID NOT take me seriously. I was concerned about PE because it runs in my family, and when I started seeing spots, swelling, ...

Re : Update on Nicky

<t>Aimee,<br/> I was so glad to read your update, and to hear from the perspective of someone who has so much in common with my boys. My oldest is 3 1/2 (named Andrew and I wrote a lot about him on another topic a few days ago), but his situation is similar--sensory integration, developmental delay/...

Re : Sometimes I too need a vent session..*update*

<t>Jennie,<br/> Hi, I'm Jennifer too and new to the forums. (and Meg's sister) I felt I had to write after reading your initial venting![:)] My 3 year-old, Andrew, (29 weeks, severe PE, 2 lbs. 15 oz) is going through so many of the same things you described. OT, two different speech therapists, deve...

Hi, I'm Ethan's mom

<t>Hi, everyone! I'm Jennifer, and Meg is my sister. I know she has been posting information and updates about my son, Ethan (3/8/04, 1 lb. 9 oz., 27 weeks 5 days), even since before he was born (when I was on bedrest). She has encouraged me to register here and begin "posting" and talking to the pe...
