34 Weeks

I had a pretty normal pregnancy. Although, I developed hyperemesis gravidarum between weeks 7 and 14, I was vomiting up to 30 times a day, couldn't even keep water down and lost my job because I was never at my desk. Apart from that, it was a very normal pregnancy.

It is a unique sort of pain to have your newborn babies in the hospital. Having access to the Miracle Babies support meant a lot to us as, especially as a first time mum and dad.

Zara faced brain bleeds, transfusions (blood and platelets), collapsed lung, kidney failure, heart issues, the list went on. I had lost quite a lot of blood also and therefore my recovery was quite slow. Day 5 we got to hold her for the first time and it was the most emotional and precious moment we had ever experienced.

Walking alone into the operating theatre brought back a lot of memories from Zara’s birth and to say I was emotional would be an understatement.

If I hadn't trusted my instinct and pushed the fact that the baby's movements had significantly decreased she would not have survived inside much longer. I will forever be thankful that I pushed the issue and that our beautiful obstetrician listened.

Isla was crying and therefore breathing when she was born and I was relieved of my biggest fear. She weighed a tiny 2.09 kilos but was just perfect in every way. After a quick cuddle she was off to the Special Care Nursery. I didn’t get to see Isla until later that evening, she was snuggled up in her isolette and looked so small and lonely. The next day we had cuddles, and by the third day she was in an open crib.

At lunch time we went for a walk and during the walk the pain came back. We sat and had lunch put the pain was intensifying. I said to my partner we need to go to the hospital, something isn’t right.
