NICU day #32

Today is K's one-month birthday, and tomorrow is day zero: her due date. We are now in the home stretch.

The plan is to take her off of her medication on Saturday and monitor her for 72 hours, putting her release at some point on Tuesday. This all depends on how she holds up tomorrow and through the weekend.

So please think some good thoughts that everything goes smoothly and we can bring our sweet little girl home early next week. We've been patient long enough.

You ARE in the home stretch, mama. Counting down days and then hours until your baby girl is united with you at home.

I've not visited your blog for a while because my own daughter was born 6 weeks early and we had a 2 week stay in the NICU. Reading your updates makes me so happy! Congratulations on the birth of your daughter! I hope that she can come home next Tuesday!!

Im so happy that you will hopefully be able to take baby K home soon. I have been following your story for a while now and as a fellow infertility sufferer (if you even call it that) Im so happy that your dream of becoming a mother has come true - it gives us all hope that one day we will get it too. She is just gorgeous!!!
