3 Weeks Old (32 weeks Gestation)

Well this week the boys have had some milestones and some mild set backs.  Jonathan and Chase have both gained weight but now Chase has surpassed Jonathan where Jonathan was ahead of Chase in weight for a while.  Jonathan now weighs 2 lbs 13 oz. and is 16 1/2 inches in length.  Chase broke 3 lbs 2 oz. and is 16 1/2 inches in length.  Jonathan will break 3 lbs in the next 3 oz.  So they are doing really good on weight gain.  Jonathan and Chase have had a few dramatic drops in there oxygen saturation along with their heart rates here and there.  Nothing too much to worry about but they are doing a little worse than they were before but the nurses say it is normal to have ups and downs day in and day out so not to worry they were just fine when i walked in today.

They are now up to 7 cc's (almost 2 teaspoons) of breast milk every three hours.  And they are handling it pretty well so far.  They may have to cut back according to how their body responds to that much milk but so far so good. Here are their 3 week old pictures.  See how much they have filled out since the weight gaining has improved along with their breast milk intake?
