My Daughter was Born on 27th March 2008, 10 weeks early!
My story Starts like this, I was admitted to Mater Hospital Brisbane when l was 25weeks with High blood pressure, after a number of tests I found out I had pre-eclampsia, I was told I would stay in hospital until bub comes! 5 weeks in hospital was very hard but the staff were so nice! 4 days before Bub came we were taken to ICN so we knew what to expect, it was eye opening and so scary knowing this is what we were in for! so the day before alisha was born the dr came and told us that i was getting Very sick and bub would be born tommorow at 8am via c-section! So the big day came, we were so excited hubby rushed to hospital after night shift, and got dressed in his scrubs! At 8.58am Alisha Maree was born 1332g and 40cms, she was taken away straight away and put on cpap machine, and i saw her about a hr later, omg she was so Little so beauitful so like her daddy! so i was taken back to my room, and my family left so I could rest, 20 mins later I was told I was going to adult ICU so far away from my baby! I was put on a magisum infusion and spent 3 days there where my blood pressure went thought the roof and was very lucky i was there, i also found out i had a enlarged heart from all the fluid I was retaining! My 1st Cuddle with Alisha was her day 4! it was amazing ! I didnt want to have to put her back in the humidicrib I could of cuddled her all day, I remember she felt like a warm frog all skin and bones! Alisha was so Very lucky, she never got sick all she had to do was to get bigger! Thats what one of the midwifes said, she is not sick just Little! She came home 6 weeks later! another amazing day!!!
