Hi, I totally relate to this so conclude that yes it is probably normal. My little boy was born 30 weeks 5 days on March 15th. He started on CPAP then the ventilator, then a mixture, back on CPAP then now on the vent again. Phew, it's exhausting especially when all you want is some progress and he seems to go back and forth. I hope this is some comfort to you and the nurses will see it all the time I'm sure, time is a great healer as they say. Good luck to you and the little one and hopefully we can share some lovely stories in the near future.
So normal!!! I know it is frustrating now but you find that the steps forward become leaps while the steps backward start to get smaller. It took my little one (born at a little over 23 weeks) 3 tries to get off the ventilator and on c-pap, 2 tries to get from c-pap to high flow etc. The weight gain will fluctuate too. He will gain a huge amount then drop a bit.
