My friend's (since kindergarten) little sister, who's 18 years old, is having her baby today. She is only 27 weeks along and they cannot stop labor. We are leaving soon to go be with her. She is basically alone, so going to give her support. I had two premiees, but not that premiee. Please keep them in your prayers! Any moms with 27 weeker support?
Thank you all for your prayers. Baby Boy Jacob Ryan was born at 6:41pm last night weighing 2lbs 4oz. He's 15 inches long. He's doing great all things considered. He's on a CPAP. They tried doing a canula today, but the attempt failed...he wasn't ready, so he's back on CPAP. He's jaundice, but that's normal too. He's really doing great for a 27.5 weeker!
Mom's doing great, having a hard time learning to pump, but she'll get there. It's a very sticky situation with dad and grandma though. Grandma is an overbearing control freak and boyfriend/dad is a possessive jerk!!! So, she's in a tough spot.
