It feels surreal to sit here with Ru pulling at my hair, a year since I sat in this exact spot with her in my tummy. This was one of my only nearby places to escape to and feel a part of the world again when I finally got gate leave while on bed rest for several weeks in RNS Hospital. Living on the Maternity Ward has been one of my most challenging chapters of the past year, hearing newborn babies cry metres away while I was desperately trying to keep "barely viable" Ru inside with steroids, antibiotics, daily scans and constant CTG. I prayed for her to be a tough cookie, but really knowing her (and her strengths) now it all makes sense. I just wish I'd known it then, to be able to enjoy that part of the ride. ๐ŸŒˆ

cosmic_hacker001 : Love what you wrote! I really wish I had enjoyed those few months right after my sons birth a whole lot more and not be consumed by my own worries and challenges. Teaches us such an epic lesson to be in the moment and KNOW it's all being taken care of ๐Ÿ’•

karawoskettportraits : She is so gorgeous ๐Ÿ’– You are such great parents! Such a journey you have been on. I totally understands that feeling, I also spent time in hospital, 6 weeks, it was so hard not being able to go home to my be with my 2 girls or step outside my ward or the hospital to smell fresh air. To see and hear newborn full term babies when I was hardly showing, and the worry each day, that today could be the day, hoping I could make it even one more day, trying to work out each day how much the baby would weigh, scans, steroid injections and doctors saying if I could just make it at least another week. I got to 29 weeks, a darling baby boy, so strong, such a fighter, now 15 months (12 months corrected) Such a blessing ๐Ÿ’™ Your Ru is such a darling ๐Ÿ’–โค๏ธโค๏ธ
