One day late but it still counts. Yesterday was world prematurity day and it also marks one whole year of being together at home as a family of seven. We always knew the quads would be born premature it was just a matter of when. We were told if they were born before 25 weeks it wouldn’t be likely they wouldn’t survive considering they were a higher multiple birth, but if I made it to 28 weeks that would give them a better fighting chance. The uncertainty the whole pregnancy was so hard, we never knew what was going to be the outcome once they were born. I made it to 28.3 weeks before going into spontaneous labour and they were born a couple of hours later at 28.4 weeks ranging from 1100 grams to 1300 grams. I don’t think any amount of prep could prepare you for a long stay in NICU especially with very premature babies hooked up to breathing gears, feeding tubes, lines, wires and monitors. I couldn’t even keep up with the amount of times a baby would stop breathing and their heart would stop. Overall despite the lovely staff and the families around that became friends, NICU and SCBU was hard and I was happy once it was over. We spent 96 nights in the Ronald McDonald House, 10 weeks in NICU and another 4 weeks in SCBU before welcoming our last quad home. Finally being all together and moving forward onto our next journey was exciting but also scary – we had waited for that moment since we found out I was pregnant! 🌸🦋🦊🌻
