    just got back from seeing Gwen - i know i am biased, but i just think she's too cute. i can say that, right? lol

    they took out her tube again this morning while we were there - so she's not even on that anymore. we took a couple more pics - i'll have to upload those today. we saw the doc. and he said she's doing well. he said her blood sugars are stablized so they're giving her less sugars in her IV and more fluids. they want me to try to continue to pump to get breastmile a.s.a.p. so they can start giving her some of that. i'm trying!

    Ann, she's just gorgeous. She looks so much like you :)

    She sure is a lucky (and smart) girl to come out when she did.

    It's so great to have you back with us. We've missed you... give miss Gwen a kiss for me :)
    i was talking with a nurse here about how you had mentioned the whimpy white boy thing - she totally agreed! it was funny - she said they always hope it's a little black girl - they do the best.

    you must have named her after me right? my mom has always called me gwen. not sure where or why that came about but she just does! anyway now that i see you are back on the computer i will shoot you an email. congrats again!!!

    when i come should i bring my camera?
    I'll answer for Ann and the rest of BDW forum.. YES BRING YOUR CAMERA. :-)

    Ann I'm so happy for you and Paul, I'm not able to view your pictures at work, but luckly your awesome husband sent me an email yesterday with some, and she's very cute. Hopefully Gwen (gosh it's going to be so hard getting used to calling "nugget" by her real name now) will progress better then expected and you will be able to come home sooner. Congrats again to the both of you and I'm happy that your mom was able to fly out.
    It's funny - we're still calling her Nugget here and there. We (and some of the nurses) have also started calling her "Cali girl" or some variation. She's got a lot of nicknames for someone who has been alive less than 48 hours!!

        That is so awesome Ann!

        And little Gwendolyn is absolutely beautiful! I have not read through the whole thread or anything yet. I just wanted to say how happy I am for you guys that things are going as well as they can right now. Hopefully you three will be back home where you belong very soon.

        Congrats to you and Paul on the baby!

          Ann you have a beautiful baby! what luck that she is in room air already! and a big girl for 31 weeks!!! congrats!!!

          I work in NICU and in our hospital vistors have to be accompanied by either mom or dad and can only come during visiting hours... We dont let anyone other than mom or dad hold, but certainly we let pictures happen by the visitors... I find the best time for photo ops without tubes is bath time, on the days the feeding tubes are changed, because everything is out for the swim in the tub I hope that helps!

            She is so adorable, and I'm glad everything turned out OK. Congratulations to you and Paul and hope that you are able to bring little Gwendolyn home soon.

                Ok, I have to share this - my mom just sent them to me. They are pictures of me when I was just born, and then one of my grandmother (her mom) holding me ... this is my grandmother, also named Gwendolyn Ann! The pics aren't great, but I personally can see a little resemblance!

                  OMG she looks just like you... so cute.. I cracked up that you are calling her Cali girl after I posted that Cali girl post. Guess great minds think alike. She is just so beautiful. She doesn't look like a premie at all.
