i have no experience of that gestation but the transfusions are really simple and the LO is generally brighter afterwards? Alex constantly was too tired to feed but a transfusion was like new batteries again
I'm so worried! I've never experienced anyone going through anything like this and this person is very close to me. I'm going to be her birth partner but now I'm pretty sure babies dad is going to be there and I'll be outside waiting for news. I really hope there's a big chance baby will be OK
Scan estimates baby is around 3lb, she's 32 weeks on Monday x
My baby was born 32+3, to be honest he looked like a normal baby really, just very small. It can be distressing seeing them having to have breathing equipment, but at that gestation they don't usually need it for very long I think, but I don't know why your friends baby needs the transfusion. I can send you some pictures of my son via pm (I think you can do that anyway) if you want, you'll see how quickly he improved.
my scan the day before Ellie was born estimated she was a little under 3lbs and she was delivered the next morning weighing good 4lbs 3oz at 33 weeks but did drop the 3lb 1oz after having a really bad 1st week I have attached 2 pics of Ellie at her lowest weight on day 8
my daugher was born at 36 weeks and only 4 lbs/ I dont have any knowledge of the blood transfusion part but having a small baby you just have to be a bit more careful with them. My little girl 2 monthes later has already doubled her birth weight plus a pound. So they grow fast
