Had my little rainbow girl

Had my little rainbow girl

On Friday 23rd March we unexpectedly had our rainbow baby, a little girl. We’ve named her Nia Rose. She was born at 33 weeks gestation, still in her amniotic sac, and was 4lb 2oz. She was born via emergency caesarean (she was showing signs of distress and then I had a placental abruption - there was no actual labour!). A complete shock - we are in Watford General Hospital but live in Cardiff!! I wanted to share as I am so proud of her for making it though and being so healthy and she’s progressing every day. She is everything we wished for and we are just besotted! I am doing fine as well and we now concentrating on trying to get her a transfer to Cardiff so we can start to feel a bit more normal again.

Ah congrats! Hope you and baby are doing well! When babies are born in a complete sac they are said to be lucky in life!!

Ah really?! That’s so cute. She has certainly been lucky so far! I’m so glad I listened to advice and went to the hospital as soon as I had signs something was happening. I dread to think what would’ve happened if I’d had the placental abruption when somewhere else! Thank you for your kind words 😊 we are so happy x

Thank you, that’s very kind! We are hoping for our transfer today and have arranged for a set of clothes to be available when we get home so we should be ok. At the moment she is still in an incubator and only needs a blanket thankfully. Xx
