Welcome back to my Neonatal Life series. Little Lady spent 9 weeks in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). I wanted to read about other Mum’s experiences; I wanted to know if how I was feeling about it all was normal so I thought it only right that I shared my experiences of it too. Little Lady was born one hour into my 29th week of pregnancy weighing just over 3lbs, you can read about why she was born early here. Our 9 week NICU journey was the hardest one of my life so far but believe me, it is more than worth it. Today’s… View Post

Dear Little Lady, I can’t quite believe I’m writing this. I can’t believe that already you are one. When I look back over this year I’m not really sure how we got here but we did and I couldn’t be prouder of you. You didn’t have the easiest start to life. You came out before you were ready; you were tucked up in my belly with your sister. I often wonder if you miss her. I remember the moment you were born. Your sister came first and then it was your turn. I looked at Daddy and waited, waited to… View Post

Little Lady is now 7 months old. No, I’m not sure how that happened either! My tiny little 3lb baby who I sat with day after day staring into her incubator is now a chubby 15lb and most importantly healthy. She spent 9 weeks in Neonatal and came home weighing just over 4lbs. We are on the good side of things now but when we first bought her home it was all quite overwhelming. I really appreciated the people around me being understanding but sometimes people aren’t quite as accommodating. Understandably everyone wants to meet the baby that has been kept… View Post

So many lovely people on social media have been asking how the Little Lady is doing so I thought I would do a little update. On the 3rd October we finally bought Little Lady home after 9 weeks in hospital. She was supposed to come home the week before but ended up being rushed to a neighboring hospital for a hernia operation. Thankfully that was nice and straightforward. Little Lady is now four and half months actual age and 9 weeks corrected. I didn’t really understand the difference in the ages before having a prem baby but they are so… View Post
