So….our baby boy Muhammad Zayyan was born on 8/04/2019. Basically I went into labor on 3/04/2019. I was admitted into hospital and the labor was stopped via medication. On the 7th, throughout the night, I had severe contractions and he was born via C-section on the 8th at 10:30am. Surprisingly my little 33 weeker weighed in at 2.14kgs and was put in NICU as soon as he was born.
So far it has been a crazy journey as I spent over a week in hospital and it was the first time I was away from Alayna. It was the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do and her visiting everyday for a few minutes brightened up my day.
Now that I’m home, it is rather difficult splitting my time between being at home with Alayna, expressing milk a zilion times a day and going to the hospital. This journey has been much easier though. I think that because we have been through it before, we knew what to expect.
Have I mentioned that my husband has been so amazing and supportive. I would never manage without him.
We hope that our son’s NICU stay will be much shorter than Alayna’s..
