No, literally. I tried to breastfeed Ace today for the first time... Didn't go too well. I think he was tired, and not quite ready to eat, but he's on a hard schedule. So he tried, and tried, and got tuckered out. When I tried to give him his bottle, he choked a few times. Once because I wasn't paying attention, listening to the nurse and not him. And he dropped his heart rate 4 times in 20 minutes.
And now his doctor is saying that he'll most likely go home on oxygen. We can either keep him there for another month and a half on oxygen, or bring him home in two weeks on oxygen. I think I'd like to have him home. The nurses are still trying to wean him off though.
Then I went to Babies R Us to do some shopping off of my own registry, because I'll never have a baby shower.
