Ok, I am lost here.
So, I had forgotten to ask about K's weight all weekend because of all the chaos of her getting NEC again and having the central line put in. So on Tuesday my husband calls the NICU and they told him Kay was just uder 2.11lbs that day, so I didn't bother asking later that day when I went in. The next day (yesterday) I was visiting her and asked for her weight and the nurse looks on the computer and says 2.6lbs...so I was like "Whoa why did she lose so much weight over night?! What's wrong with her?!" The nurse went on the computer and looked up her previous weights and tells me she hasn't lost any (she actually gained some grams overnight)...Tuesday she was 1214g and that the nurse from Tues. must have read it wrong or something or maybe my husband heard her wrong. Ok, I figured that was it, my husband does tend to hear things wrong lol, and it had happened a couple times before when he called for her weight (or at least I thought). But then I went home to look at my little conversion chart that's in a preemie book I got...and it says just under 2.11lbs according to the chart...I then googled "1214 grams to pounds" and the answer came out to be 2.6lbs....does anyone know what's up with that?? I also checked out a few other charts online (thinking maybe mine was wrong) and the few that I saw all said 1214g was about 2.11lbs. I was planning to ask the nurse today, but totally forgot, so I was just wondering if anyone here knew why there is a difference?
Also, after realizing this I think my husband was actually listening after all lol.. :p the nurse he spoke to must have been looking at the conversion chart (they've got one right by the phone) instead of looking at the computer which automatically converts.
That's one of the charts I looked up and it is the same as the chart in my preemie book. Today she was 1250g...so according to the chart she would be at 2.12lbs...but when googling it's only 2.7lbs...such a bummer!
