    Anitha - I know exactly what you are going through. I went through the same things, since it was my first time and I was in the US all alone.
    Don't worry, doctors will keep an eye on his lung development. Quick question, did you get steroid shots to get his lungs up to speed when you went into labor? In my case, I was able to get both the shots before she was born(I had a threatened preterm labor condition, so the minute I was in the hospital they gave me the shots as a precaution). If you got atleast one of them before he was born, chances are his lungs will mature soon. Once he is able to breathe without assistance and suckle well(even if he is feeding well from the bottle), they will let him come home. Docs told me she needed to be 5lbs before coming home but then she was breathing on her own and nursing well so they let her come @4.4 lbs. I think she hit the 5lbs mark only at 2 weeks. She came home three days after I was discharged.

    Btw, if you intend to breastfeed him, please rent a hospital grade pump from the hospital itself. My milk didn't come in until I used it about 7 days later. For premature deliveries it is harder for the mom to lactate and so use this pump. I did pump milk and take it to the hospital for her.

    Take care of yourself, he'll be fine. I know a 30 weeker also who is doing great, so don't worry. Very soon, you'll forget he was a preemie.

    Anitha don't worry Rithik will be home with you soon. One of my friend delivered in her 7th month her kid is doing good and will soon celebrate his 6th birthday.
    My prayers are with you.

    Dear Laks,

    Thanks for your soothing words.. Today am little less worried... But my DH is still thinking about the shock..

    reg, steriods shots.. yeap, i was also given a threat in hosp that i will need to be in bed only till I deliver and they injected 1 shot in my thighs area.. after 12hrs they were planning to give me one more shot but my delivery happend right before the 2ns shot.. so i couldnt get the 2nd shot... my GYN and me never expected this water break.. is there any special reason for early water break??

    Today we met our Rithik and they told that baby is doing good.. Feeding tomorrow they will start seems.. Wt reduced by 1 pound(which they say it is normal after birth).. DH started worrying more.. Nurse asked me to keep rubber nipple in his mouth and I did and happy to see him suck well.. But help required for him to suck.. Still c-pad(not sure if I tell this term correctly) it was kept still in nose(oxygen supply)..

    Thurs/Fri they gonna do a brain scan seems.. We are all waiting for him to get home sooner..

    Reg, milk.. even am wondering am getting good supply of milk right from day 2.. I pumped 60ml and gave to baby.. Milk is in yellow colour but.. is it called coloustrum milk?? when it will get white?

    Re: Baby boy arrived

    Pmahensa - You are right dear.. At NICU they take care of baby very well.. Their words are also soothing for parents.. Parents are allowed 24/7 and grand parents are also allowed.. Due to flu season others are not allowed..

    DH is only very much worried.. He was dreaming to play with Rithik once he is born.. He was planning to hug him & play with him :) but since he is in NICU now and also too tiny Dh is very much worried.. Am trying to convince him to my level best telling he will be alright soon..

    Coming Sat he will be 34w and am eagerly waiting for 37w..


    Thanks Poonam, Swetha & Aparna
