Scared

Sitting in the hospital right now, 27 weeks 6 days and I’m terrified. After my ultrasound today they told me babies not growing as he should. He’s now in the 3-5 percentile. They think he’s not getting enough blood from the placenta. I had to come to the hospital to get steroids, more tomorrow , and they’ll be checking on Sunday with another ultrasound to see if it’s helped. If it has, we might have a few more weeks of him inside but not I could be having him much sooner. This is the most terrifying day of my life, having to sign my consent incase they need to give me an emergency c section was a punch to the gut. Just looking for hopeful stories for encouragement. I’m terrified for my son and can’t stop playing over the worst case scenarios in my head.

Maxwell Alexander S. was born today 1lbs 11oz💙 He’s doing very well, going to see him in a few hours after I’m feeling more up to it. I’m doing well, just in recovery. Thank you all for your support and good thoughts 💙

Best wishes Jessica, to you and your bubba. My thoughts and prayers are with you, i know this is the scariest time and I hope you have some good support around. I was so so scared when i was told it was go time...cant even bare to think about it...the c section is OK though, just trust your doctors and try to relax. Just hoping your baby is well and strong and that your journey is positive and you are present...i went into robot mode and am sure it contributed to my milk not coming in...as well as bub coming so early. I found it hard to bond with such a little baby in NICU so make sure you take lots of pics and videos to rewatch when pumping while away from him. Really hoping for a positive outcome for you, all my thoughts xox
