Life After NICU 👼🏽✨ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wasn’t supposed to be able to have children. I have endometriosis and only one functioning ovary. In July of 2017 my husband and I were shocked to find out we were expecting. Excitement soon turned to worry about what would happen when we found out I had an incompetent cervix. It started shrinking at 21 weeks and made no changes again until 23 weeks which was too late for a cerclage. So I was hospitalized for a weekend, went through my first round of steroids and magnesium and given a pesseray. Which in so few words looks like a tub stopper. Wasn’t comfortable at all but anything to keep me pregnant. I went home and was placed on bedrest. At 24 weeks I woke up at 3am and didn’t feel quite right. Woke up my husband and off to the ER we went. I was 3cm dilated and 75% effaced. So bad in the hospital I went. 2nd round of steroids and mag. Pessary removed and hospital bedrest is where I remained until he arrived. We hoped for at least 30 weeks but didn’t make it. At 25 weeks and 4 days I had a placental abruption/hemorrhage and he was taken via emergency c-section. I was scared but had faith in God and our team of docs that everything would be okay. A dose of surfactant, intubation, nippv, cpap, high and low flow cannula, picc lines, IVs, transfusions, and watching him grow outside of me was a roller coaster ride. He was 1lb 14oz and 12” long. We just came home this past Monday and he’s 6lbs 1oz and 38 weeks gestation. Still haven’t hit his due date yet (Feb 26th) He’s an amazing lil dude! We are infinitely and wonderfully blessed to have a happy, healthy, micro Preemie. Here’s a pic. Hendrix Prince is my hero!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #perfectpreemie #preemiebabies #nicu #nicubabymiracle #preemiemom #preemiedad #nicugrad #preemiesupportandawareness #preemielove #preemiepower #toronto #preemielove #preemiecommunity #preemiefighter #preemieblog

I can’t wait for him to actually meet Ezekiel when he gets to come home in a few months cause I know he’s going to be the most amazing big brother ever! Judah will get to show Zek the ropes of being a rock star preemie cause Judah is an old pro ❤️ #judahmichaelflorey #ezekielleonardflorey #judahandzekflorey #bigbrother #doubletrouble #floreybrothers #preemiebabies #31weeker #27weeker #ourlittlepreemie
