look who’s one month old today! stats have her at 6 pounds, and 17 inches long. you’d think I would be used to how quickly time passes as we’ve done this before. nope. I feel like we’ve just taken her home. But the proof is everywhere. It’s on my healing body, it’s her filling out her preemie clothes, upgrading to newborn diapers, her increasing feeds to a whopping 70 ml, and her alertness when she’s awake. thanks for this last month, sweet bean. we love you more than yesterday, and less than tomorrow. #onemonth #stillnotevenmyduedateyet #norababe #thecutestelfears🙈 #preemiebaby #iugrbaby #nicugraduate

On top of supplements, probiotics, insulin, baby asprin, labetalol, adalat and VIAGRA (helps placenta function and blood vessels expand)...I got a steroid shot in my butt today. I have a feeling I'm gonna come out of this pregnancy as a man with a 6 inch clit-boner (btw...that's a real thing but don't google steroid clit like Kris does 🤢). Anyways, a steroid shot is a scary thing when you have IUGR (interutrine growth restriction). They usually give it to you 48 hours before delivery/c-sec to boost the development of the lungs. I guess this means baby may be out by Monday 😳...hoping not! #staylongerplease #yesthatsmeinthepic #imaman . . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #preemie #preemiepower #pcos #iugr #iugrbaby #nicu #nicubaby #nicumom #nicujourney #preemiemom #prematureawareness #vancouverbaby #vancouvermom #newborn #27weeks #pregnancy #highriskpregnancy #micropreemie #roids #steroids #juicybooty
Everything about their journey seems so relatable, 8 years just like us. Makes me think about the time I almost punched out an uncle at a family gathering for asking 3 times in one night when the babies were coming. The years flew by fast. I remember we'd always go on a vacation after a failed attempt - and we've travelled LOTS. It got harder and harder for me to attend baby showers and gatherings with lots of babies. I would keep busy at work to distract me from burden of trying again. Crest was like my crutch and I worked so hard at it so I would forget all the pain of feeling like I was broken. But the pain is real...and looking back now, I wouldn't change or trade my journey for anything else in this world. I'm inspired, I am renewed by the testimony of @dawnchere + @richwilkersonjr. Still so many unknowns but I have faith, I have hope and most importantly... I have God. . . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #preemie #preemiepower #pcos #iugr #iugrbaby #nicu #nicubaby #nicumom #nicujourney #preemiemom #prematureawareness #vancouverbaby #vancouvermom #newborn #27weeks #pregnancy #highriskpregnancy #micropreemie #vouschurch

Merry belated Christmas everyone! 🎄 Thank you for all your sweet messages and prayers this week. Had our ultrasound today and it still showed reverse blood flow (meaning we're still at high risk for delivering a stillborn or having major developmental issues). Good news is the baby's weight increased from 380g -> 480g ⚖️ Despite all the scary scenarios they laid out for us, we told them today that we're not terminating...we're going for it. 💪🏻 I start intense monitoring this week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the hospital. NST tests, dopplers, ultrasounds, the whole 9 yards...we're putting our taxes dollars to good use 👍🏻 Hang in there lil negus 👶🏿 #25weeks . . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #preemie #preemiepower #pcos #iugr #iugrbaby #nicu #nicubaby #nicumom #nicujourney #preemiemom #prematureawareness #vancouverbaby #vancouvermom #newborn #27weeks #pregnancy #highriskpregnancy #micropreemie #merrychristmas
Yesterday's ultrasound showed that baby only grew 5 out of the last 14 days. They are giving me the option to terminate before next Saturday. A major red flag was some reverse blood flow they saw from baby to placenta. His weight is only 380g and he has to be 500g to try and take out and save. The other option is to just leave him for now but his chances of surviving is sitting under 5-10% at the moment. If I don't terminate, they will need to do a Classic c-sec and cut me down the middle 😖 They will need to do this once they see that the baby has either stopped growing, my health is at risk or when the baby has passed away. Really sad news especially during the time of year when we're supposed to be celebrating the birth of Jesus...but Kris and I are hanging in there. I'm just trying to enjoy my time with lil negus, all the kicks and punches from within 👊🏻👟. It's ok to be scared, mad, sad, all the emotions you can think of...I know I don't have to be strong all the time. I just know that whatever happens, I'll have peace in my heart. I also have the most amazing support system around me and there's no doubt in my mind that we WILL get through this. 💪🏻 I had a thought at work today when I felt this sharp pain in my back...💭💭💭I thought, what a privilege it is to grow a little being in your body...regardless of how long for and regardless of what the outcome is. We are blessed. Thank you all for following on this journey with us 💕 . . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #preemie #preemiepower #pcos #iugr #iugrbaby #nicu #nicubaby #nicumom #nicujourney #preemiemom #prematureawareness #vancouverbaby #vancouvermom #newborn #27weeks #pregnancy #highriskpregnancy #micropreemie #liam #emmanuel #godiswithus
