Goal is to to not have baby for 2 days. It is still breach. Just had sono. She had her hospital bag packed. I hadn't done mine yet. So, if I am sitting here for two days..this is going to suck. we were supposed to move into the new place prior to baby coming along. I know that plans change but she's most likely going to need a c~section. 3 story townhome is going to be be difficult especially with everthing on different floors. Can't worry about it now though. Just have to see happy, healthy baby first!!  Going to get to sleep for a bit in this rocking chair.

I hope I didn't jinx it by telling you I was born 9 weeks early...  :-\

I was in the hospital for about a month, but I turned out normal...  ;)

Hope everything goes well for the three of you.  [thumbsup]

Doc wants to be safe and make sure that everything is ok beforehand..and "could be"  isn't for sure.  Mine was in the NICU for only a couple days and then they were able to send her home (and send a home health aide a couple times/day)...we'll keep sending all the good thoughts your way.


Title: Re: wifes water just broke!!
Post by: Slide Panda on June 01, 2011, 06:46:48 AM
can you break water?

If it's frozen.

3 weeks - Don't fret Adam. It'll probably be less and it's not a big deal. Both my friends boys spent short stints in the NICU as they didn't feel like waiting to be born. Both are happy healthy and getting to be huge.

Congrats

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!!   [thumbsup]

My nieces and nephew in AZ are waiting for Baby IZ's name... they know Adam and Amy...

Sorry..I've been telling the family/friends who've been visiting all day.  


Welcome to the DMF..

"Maro Addison Adamec B___" .   (No, that's not "bacon" Bacon..it's my last name).  [cheeky]
Born 6/1/11  His expected date was 7/23.  Just a few weeks early!!  
4lbs 2oz
18.5" long

"Maro" is of Japanese origin but it is also heard in European countries.  Pronounced like "Mario" just loose the "ee" sound/syllable.  I heard that name when we first got married back in '94.  
"Addison" means Adam's son
"Adamec" is my wife's maiden name. :)

Mrs. IZ wanted Addison for a girl so I told her to use it as a middle name since it really is a boy's name.  ;)  It is in the Top 10 most popular name lists (which I was trying to steer away from) but we think it goes good with his first name.  The Mrs couldn't decide if she wanted to use that or her maiden name so she just used both.  

First stranger to ask my son's name today. I said "Maro" and the woman next to her blurts out "that was my father's name and it's my brother's middle name!".   My coworker also told me she had a friend from Italy with the same name.  So, yes..it is a real name. ;)

Will post pics in a few!  :)  Happiest guy in the world right now.   [Dolph]

*BTW..I just noticed that emoticon's label..Dolph.   THAT is awesome!

Goat..awesome you got to take her home so early!

Maro will be in NICU for 3-6 weeks.  Good in a way since we aren't moving for 2 more weeks.  I guess the plan of having a house and nursery in place isn't going to work like we totally expected.  Oh well..we'll make it anyway!   :)

Then the dogs would have to duck their heads to get in...!  ;D

Dude, I was born 9 weeks early.  I weighed 3lbs. 12oz. and went down to 3lbs. 8oz. in a matter of hours.  That was 37 years ago.  Technology back then was nothing compared to what it is now.  Maro will be home with you and Amy before you know it!   [thumbsup]

Now, as someone mentioned, time to find you a house out here...  ;)

I'm going to use this time to move, sleep and get everything we need to take care of him.  We're almost there.  His arrival home can't come quick enough!!  :)

Totally love baby IZ's (Maro A A B) name!

I love round doors, when we watched the movie I said so and Carl just  [roll] at me...

My parents first read the Hobbit to me when I was 5 or 6!

I was 3 weeks early, just over 4lbs and I broke my incubator because I was trying to roll around, tubble so I was told, this was in ancient times...sure technology is better...LOL

Good luck in your move, Maro will be home with you guys soon!

Totally love baby IZ's (Maro A A B) name!

I love round doors, when we watched the movie I said so and Carl just  [roll] at me...

My parents first read the Hobbit to me when I was 5 or 6!

I was 3 weeks early, just over 4lbs and I broke my incubator because I was trying to roll around, tubble so I was told, this was in ancient times...sure technology is better...LOL

Good luck in your move, Maro will be home with you guys soon!

Can't wait for things to calm down, Amy to recover, Maro to get bigger and stronger...and you and your family visit Santa Barbara Shire  :)

We are thrilled for you guys!

Fixed it for you!  [cheeky]


Funny..you'll be making those round-door eyes at Sac as soon as The Hobbit movies come out in 2012 & 2013!

Both my brother and I were way early... he more so than I.  I was born at 3 lbs 6 oz, and he was 2 lbs 4 oz.  I had clubbed feet, and he had a smattering of dysfunctions, i.e. under developed lungs, needed open heart surgery at three days old, died a few times on the table... my poor parents.  They straightened my legs and he fought through everything.  Now, we're both fully functioning adults (I'm 25 and he's 28) without any medical issues.

Being a father myself now, it's amazing how resilient little ones are.  Everything will be fine.  Enjoy every second you have with little Maro, they grow up so quickly...

Congratulations Mr and Mrs IZ  [thumbsup]

Your pictures of Maro brought back memories of the arrival of our first son.  He was eight weeks early and weighed 4lbs and needed a little support to begin with.  We brought him home after four weeks.  He's 15 now, a big strong soccer player who can out arm wrestle his ol' Dad  :).  But I do remember when he looked just like Maro looks now :).  A few weeks early is very manageable these days and you'll all be home together before you know it.

Thanks for sharing guys!  it's so scary right now. Tears start rolling down my face everytime I see him.  Not just because I'm excited but it kills me to see my son with all the equipment in place and the bruises and stick marks from the needles. He's kicking and screaming at the nurses though to tell them what he doesn't like. Little fighter he is turning out to be!

Yay BabIz.

Maro will be fine. A little early start is no biggy. As I said before, both of my friends boys came early and both are working toward being giants.

Last year some lady questioned the mom as to why Rowan (the older of the two) had so few words 'at his age' The lady thought he was older than her child of 3.5. But no, Rowan was only 2.5 and already taller than her kid by an inch.

Goat..awesome you got to take her home so early!

Maro will be in NICU for 3-6 weeks.  Good in a way since we aren't moving for 2 more weeks.  I guess the plan of having a house and nursery in place isn't going to work like we totally expected.  Oh well..we'll make it anyway!   :)
The important thing is both mother and son are healthy and safe.  Just make sure you visit him often and bond with him while he is in the NICU.  Emma stayed in NICU for only 3 days since she was perfectly healthy.  There was nothing more they need to do for her so they sent her home.

Since last night, Maro has had 2 chest xrays. His gases (CO2 level) were a bit high. He may have aspirated on some blood when they ran a tube down his throat. hoping it isn't pneumonia. Mom and dad get to change his diapers, take temp and do other chores to help the nurses out every few hours.  Trying to be strong but I cry everytime he see him. I try not to do it in front of mom because I have to be the strong one right now. Its just very painful not being able to help and are him struggle and not be able to pick him up without 20 wires, tubes, etc running from every extremity.

aww iz! lots of good thoughts are being sent your way... my nephew was born 4 months premature. he weighed 2 lbs at birth. he had a lung disease & a heart murmur. he actually lost weight at one point & weighed 1lb 8 oz... he was in the hospital for over 3 months... but he survived. he's 29 now & 6'2 & completely healthy... it's scary because babies are so small & seem so fragile but it's really amazing how tough they truly are & love works miracles :)

No you are exhausted.....worry/stress leads to exhaustion....exhaustion can lead to skewed perspective.....which can lead to despair which is little more than self-pity with make-up and lipstick on....

the best thing you can do is get some sleep, get something to eat when you wake up...real food...not hospital vending machine crap

if you need reassurance...believe me then your wife needs 5 times that much....

she needs to see confidence and optimism in your eyes...you need enough rest to restore your perspective and give her that

not that it offsets your personal realtime I will share this:

my twins were premies....my ex was in early labor from month 5 on...she wasn't sized for them....we did everything short of stringing her up by her ankles and corking her to keep the kids in....they c-sectioned them out at almost 8 months and they went right into the incubator with underdeveloped lungs for 2 weeks

my son's head looked "bent" from the womb crowding....he is 6'6" and his head filled out (thank God) my daughter is now a mother herself

welcome to parenthood....IZ this is the shit that makes us grow old...and puts character on our faces

you all will do fine

No "boning" going on in here!

*removes foot from mouth

Pol...we've both held Maro skin to skin contact. Amy twice and I have once. Its a slow process. It is very reassuring though when I hear people I talk to say that they were a preemie also. Very optimistic but that helps my mindset even more.

Cool, so glad you guys are starting to be able to! I am sure this helps him and you!!!

Both my brother and I were preemies just a little over 4lbs and we both had to stay in the hospital a little, neither of have any heath issues. My two sisters were really large babies (just over 5 [cheeky] )

I know it"s a slow process it will get better, it had to have felt good to hold your son  ;D

Yes, it was pretty much the happiest day of my life! 

Good news today.  PIC line placement was a success.  Now Maro won't have to get IV's every 12-24 hours.  It was actually more frequent than that.  He's very active and a bit fiesty which may have been a contributor.  Anyway, he may have the C-PAP removed soon because his breathing is better and they are increasing his food intake!   :) :'(  Happy tears!

Good news today.  PIC line placement was a success.  Now Maro won't have to get IV's every 12-24 hours.  It was actually more frequent than that.  He's very active and a bit fiesty which may have been a contributor.  Anyway, he may have the C-PAP removed soon because his breathing is better and they are increasing his food intake!   :) :'(  Happy tears!

Damn  :'( :).  You make me remember my same happy tears  :'( :).

Its tough watching the little fella endure all the hardware and needle pricks - our little bloke's heels were pin cushions from all the needles....  but 15 years later he's no worse the wear for it  :). 

He laughs now when we show him the little woollen hat he wore when we first brought him home - so tiny  :).   

Great that Maro is progressing so well  [thumbsup]. 

Enjoy every little moment, they grow up fast.

Dr. just took Maro off the C~PAP so no more headgear. We can finally see his little face! He is breathing our oxygen with just a little help. A small O2 tube with 2 prongs running into his nostrils is all he requires at the moment. Let's see how that goes. *fingers crossed* Dr also increased his nutritional intake. Well, he actually nearly doubled it so this not is going to be growing fast. He should be up to 5~6lbs in a week or so. The truly amazing thing is that he already knows a few gestures and isn't afraid to speak his mind!

This place (the NICU) is rough. Not sure is I mentioned that Maro is next to a 2.6 lb girl. On the other side of her was..up until about 2 hours ago..was a 1 pounder. He passed today. I can't even think about that family cuz I have to give Maro all the positive energy that I can but this is not a place ever want to be in again.

Glad the little guy is more comfortable now, and great pics, Maro is so sweet!  He looks so comfy and safe with mom, I'm sure Mrs IZ feels that way too.

Please keep the updates and pics coming, and don't forget to take care of yourself too :)



p.s.  In the kangaroo pic he makes you look like a giant.  Enjoy it while it lasts, cause he'll be much bigger before you know it -- in just another week! -- and you'll be back to hobbit size  ;D

The doctor increased Maro's intake Again today! Great news. Just had kangaroo time with mom for nearly 2 hours. We both came back to the house for the first time today.  We planned on staying here tonight but both of us felt guilty as soon as I unloaded the vehicle. I'm sure we'll be back in the nesting rooms tonight. The great thing about that is a free room w/ bathroom. No shower but it works.  The stories out of the NICU so sad but Maro's is going to be a great one!  Like I mentioned before, the kid is healing well, breathing better and increasing his intake daily! He nearly crawls too...no exaggeration..in his bed and up Mom's chest. He's like a little spider monkey!  Thanks for all the positive energy everyone!

By the way, did you get the email...?

My parent's couldn't stay overnight at the Hospital.  Besides having to take care of my older sister, there were no provisions for it back then.  My mom had to leave the hospital on Mother's Day without me.  :'(

I was in that little plastic incubator box for nearly a month.  :P

It's just so awesome that you and Amy get "kangaroo" time so soon.  I'll bet that's a HUGE part of why he's gaining strength so fast.  Never underestimate the power of loving touch!  [thumbsup]

No problem. Just get one of those huge swaths of fabric that hippy/yoga parents use to create hammock-like Baby Bjorns.  Make sure the fabric has lots of bright colors and tinsel.  Add the unicorn, my little pony, hello kitty accoutrement, and you're good to go!!!

He was 6 at birth-around 20 now. So, bigger'n you.

I would've chosen "Spartacus", fyi.
"I'm Spartacus!"

Wiki ?!  [roll]

Maro..Japanese origin.  Name meaning "myself".

But if you're going with Wiki..
•Maro or Maron, in Greek mythology he raised Dionysus as an infant. Later, he became a priest of Apollo

I am so happy he is doing so well! I really thought he would! I know lot's of scarceness but look at him thrive :)

Carl and I really wanted to stop by and see you guys but we had a family emergancy and Carl did a trip to AZ and back in less than 24 hrs and I did it with an extra day but now we have my sister and here three babies (13, 9, 7) here for lots of love and TLC for at least two months!!!!

Sorry we could not make it to see you three but we really busted a move to get them all out and my parents in less than 48 hours.

We look forward to seeing you and Amy again and meeting Maro! Sorry we missed you guys.

Keep posting pic's :) It is so good to see!

Carl is the best husband and uncle so they are extra lucky!

Life can through you loops but love and loyalty and being there is what gets us all thru!

Yes, the puppies are beside them selves, they love mu sister and her kids! They couldn't be happier to have their babies her, pack complete :)

Thanks all!  The move is done. Just settling in now. Maro is in his crib wearing his new pants and hat. The belly button is looking like its ready to fall off. He's up to 5lbs 4oz. Spent an hour holding this morning.  He's focusing in more and tracking us. His eyes look like they might be a grey blue?  Still hard to tell. Maybe we'll see in about a week when we can take him out of the hospital into the sunlight. Have to start work tomorrow. Good thing is...contract job happens to be 200yds away from the hospital.

Eye colour on a newborn is typically lighter-it'll likely change as he gets older.



Possibly to match the UPS guy.

I was able to feed Maro using a bottle for the first time..the nurses had already attempted twice..and he finished nearly the entire thing. Pic line came out yesterday. Like RM said, he is finally in his own room too. The MrsIZ ended up staying overnight to be with him now that I am back to work. Hoping just a few more days until he comes home!  :)

Here's a new pic.

Maro is now up to 6lbs 2 oz.  This Wednesday he'll be a month old.  It's strange because this has been the longest but the fastest month I think I've ever experienced.   ???

He passed his hearing screening and his vision appears normal.  Maro's been in his own room for nearly a week and is eating 52mL at each feeding.  We're using a bottle as much as possible now.  His goal is to finish 8 full bottles consecutively before he can be D/C'ed.  We're hoping that will be next weekend!   :)

I walked into Maro's room today and was suprised to see him on the floor.  Not in his crib as I expected!  At first, I panicked but realized he was in a car seat. Apparently, practicing for his trip home!!   :D  

He's been doing really well.  Gaining wt daily.  He started out at 4lbs 2 oz.  He's now up to 7lbs 2 oz.  He'll be 5 weeks old tomorrow.  We're hoping to bring him home by Sat.  Which will be my wife's birthday and our 17th wedding anniversary.  That would be a great gift!!  

He's tolerating bottle feedings up to 55mL every 3 hours.  He doesn't cry more than a few seconds and is very mellow when he's awake.  We're hoping this will last.

A few more pics.  He looks so different as the days pass.  BTW..the NG tube was removed 2 days ago too!

Things took a turn from last night to this morning. Maro didn't take his bottle. He lost weight, stopped breathing several times and had to have the feeding tube out back down his nose.  The nurses are still preparing us for his discharge from the hospital. He's 5 weeks today. We're just really getting ready for the day. 

Rat...that's exactly the look. His next move...either pull that feeding tube out or make a mess on mom when she's changing him.

consider throwing the brakes on the discharge with that sort of stunt work by the goober <he was plotting>

you're not the only ones emotionally invested in the little Boner

Just went there. His stomach is huge!  Had to get an xray today because of it. Gained weight back that he lost though.
