View Full Version : A most unexpected delivery



El Chuxter
08-22-2006, 11:45 PM
Expected arrival date: 10/2/2006

Actual arrival date: 8/22/06

Happy birthday, Charlotte Elizabeth [Chuxter]. :)

She's still in the neo-natal ICU, under close observation. Aside from rapid breathing (not uncommon in premies), she's doing quite well. (Mrs Chuxter seemed to be having a normal, even mild, pregnancy until this morning, when suddenly her water broke, and she was almost immediately in labor.)

So I'll probably be scarce from this neck of the woods for several days. ;)

Well, I wouldn't call it a "most" unexpected delivery...early, sure, but not COMPLETELY unexpected, unless Chux was unaware of his pending paternity. lol lol lol

Congrats Chux, damn that's cool... I sent ya a message yesterday and thought that you'd disappeared to take the heat off :beard:
Glad you had an actual reason to skip out.
Hope you, Mrs.Chuxter and the little one are in for relatively smooth sailing :D

Awesome dude. Congrats to both of you. May she bring you guys peace and joy through out your life. Mrs. KH loves the name. Will give ya a call later this week old friend. Enjoy your new child.

Edit: Forgot to say she is a beautiful child. Can I get a few wallet sizes?

CONGRATS, CHUX!!! I'm really happy for the both of you and happier yet that you both FINALLY know the sex of your kid :thumbsup:

The NICU stuff can be pretty scary, but assuming Mrs. Chuxter was around 34 weeks you guys should be in great shape. We were at 31 weeks or so and we were there for two months, and if you go by the equation the nurses use and assume every day in the belly is two less in the NICU, then it would stand to reason that you guys should only be there for a couple weeks tops.

The best part of the NICU? They get the kids on a feeding schedule for you!

This is great news indeed, Chux. I couldn't be happier and wish the three of you the absolute best! Would I be correct in assuming that it was an immaculate conception? I only ask becuase anything that beautiful can't possibly have Flornbi genes! :D

Like CaptainSolo said, 34 weeks and you're in the clear. Our girls came at a few days shy of 34 weeks, and they were only in the NICU for a few days.

You are blessed with a beautiful bouncing girl, and with medical technology, there is no doubt she is in good hands and will make it without any complication.

Thanks for all the well wishes, y'all. :) I'm about half dead right now, having spent most of the day in the NICU (we were able to hold her today, but it looks like she won't be coming home until Friday at the earliest), and I just got home from driving 30 minutes so I could let my parents and brothers in when they got into town.

Exactly, but then the next minute you love them.

I'm beginning to wonder if Caesar and seanmcfripp aren't one in the same, we're just separate bipolar entities of SeanMcCaesar...each side of the bipolar brain posting in shifts. Notice how sean and "I" are never online at the same time? :)

Either way, we're both dead sexy.

Now if only Lil Chux could have held out a few more days and been born today with JimJam and MasterMatt, THEN we'd have our SSG triplets ! :grin: :grin: :grin:

El Chuxter

She's still in the NICU until she can learn to eat, breathe, and circulate blood properly at the same time. Hopefully another day or two. (The 30-40 minute drive to and from the hospital is really wearing me down, but it's well worth it.) Aside from that, she's doing spectacularly well. This morning, she was even lifting her head and looking around, which is apparently rare for newborns, much less preemies.

I can tell already that she is going to be spoiled rotten. :) I've been in a couple of stores in the past week for reasons not tied to my toy addiction, and I believe I spent more time in the baby toys and "girlie" aisles of the stores than looking at action figures.

And when you and she both cannot sleep late at night, just take her to the soothing glow of the computer screen and scroll through the threads here at SSG. Ways to beat that insomnia (you know a list is coming):

10. Just click a reply of all smileys.
9. Spend time creating :Lil' Ms. Chux: smiley.
8. Count all Caesar's resurrected threads.
7. Spam SirSteve's PM box.
6. Get around the only-one-ISP rule.
5. Train her to say "banned" for her first word.
4. Her gurgling and cooing can replace several scenes of dialogue in the PT.
3. Let her easily fall asleep with all the complaints about resculpts.
2. I don't even collect the diaper bags, but...
1. Reassure her she's in no way related to Slicker's mom!

Congratulations. You've taken your first step into- (watch out for the baby gate! :eek: )... :yes:

To tack on to BCJ's list...

11. Come up with ways to convert existing molds from Little People and Little Pets into Star Wars playsets.
12. Packing up the Star Wars collection to make room for Barbie.
13. Trying to reprogram the mobile in her crib to play the song from the Cantina
14. Build up a knowledge database for all the Disney Princesses
15. Finding the right mixture of baby food peas and green beans to match the slime that got on C-3PO in ROTJ.

So which one of us is Edward Norton? I guess that makes the other guy Brad Pitt. More importantly, which one of us gets to nail Helena Bonham Carter? If I understand this correctly, I think we both do!!! Sweet.

She's still in the NICU until she can learn to eat,Is you wife feeding her...errr..."naturally" or do you have to get Charlotte to figure out bottles? They're not giving her a feeding tube, are they?! That always broke my heart.
breathe,Is she on a ventilator or does she have a CPAP? Are they giving her caffine to prevent apneas?
(The 30-40 minute drive to and from the hospital is really wearing me down, but it's well worth it.)I had to drive an hour each way. For three months. Eat it, Richards. ;)
Aside from that, she's doing spectacularly well. This morning, she was even lifting her head and looking around, which is apparently rare for newborns, much less preemies.That's awesome. After "going thru it", I'm always glad to hear about people "graduating" from the NICU.

By the way, it took tremendous willpower on my part, but (after getting to the checkout screen and getting ready to enter the $10 off promo code from Comic-Con), I decided she needed things like food and diapers more than the Barriss & Luminara maquette. Partly because she has no use for it. And partly because I'd be a dead man if that thing showed up on the doorstep without clearly being identified as a gift or freebie of some sort.

A friend of mine who wanted me to have kids picked up a little Darth Vader onesie for my then-unborn progeny many months ago. Once she is able to come home, she will wear it, whether from the little boys' department or not. :)
