Sunday, September 24. Day 42 in the hospital.
Dear Diary, j/k 😉
Well, it's been a scary and emotional few days for the six (including Mum) of us at the hospital. Less than 60 seconds after Tuesday's super positive smoothie post, things changed quickly! Bleeding and intense contractions out of nowhere had us frightened the unthinkable was happening. 26 weeks to the day was not when we envisioned bringing these little ones into the world. I was immediately administered a steroid shot to give the babies lungs a boost in case of delivery and was put on a magnesium drip in order to try and hold off the labour long enough for a second steroid shot 24 hours later. The side effects from the magnesium were extremely unpleasant and it was administered for 48 hours. It made my skin burn, so I was covered in ice packs, and I wasn't allowed food or water in case of surgery. Well, two incredibly stressful days came and went, my contractions subsided and for the time being, things seem stable. A different medication is helping keep my uterus calm now and we are back to trying to manage the preeclampsia while hoping not to see any more bleeding or contractions. Now we are 26 + 5 weeks and are more aware than ever that every day counts. They are continuing to monitor me closely for all possibilities, as they aren't 100% sure what happened.
During the scare I was given different meds, tests, and ultrasounds to check everything. We were so relieved when they measured the babies and our baby girl had a growth spurt almost catching up to the boys and all 3 are right on 🎯. On Tuesday they weighed approximately:
Baby A: 2lbs 3oz 💙
Baby B : 1lb 14oz 💖
Baby C : 1lb 15oz 💙
I am so grateful that my mother just happened to be here this week when we needed her most. She leaves on Tuesday and has spoken to the babies through my belly about staying in there at least until she returns mid October. I'm glad I'm more stable now and we can walk 5 minutes, once a day, and have some laughs.
아빠랑 연애할때부터 워낙 팔힘이 약해서,
우유 뚜껑도 혼자 못따고,
1리터짜리 가습기 물통도 혼자 못채우고,
20리터짜리 쓰레기통 꽉 차기라도 하면,
넘치는 기저귀를 쓰레기통 옆에 살포시 얹어놓으시는 분인데.
준우 너만은 아무렇지 않은 얼굴로 번쩍번쩍 들어 올리는구나.
이젠 아빠도 너 안으려면 준비운동 먼저 하는데 말이지 ㅋ.
아빠가 지난주 병원갈때 우연히 봤는데, 선우를 유모차에 태우고 가다가 계단이 나오니깐 주위를 한번 쓱~ 둘러보더니 유모차 채로 번쩍 들어서는 계단을 성큼성큼 올라 가더라고 ㅡㅡ .
아빠 없을땐 등뒤에 칼이랑 방패 차고 다니는거 아닌가 몰라.
I'm laughing right now at how romantic this picture looks. Our night was far from romantic.. we cleaned our entire home from top to bottom yet again (including finding gigantic cobwebs under the fridge), put away laundry for maybe three hours, ordered take-out Mexican food and are still arguing with our two 4 year olds and one 5 year old to actually GO TO BED, while in the meantime bottle-feeding the baby and singing the 2 year old to sleep. Life is not a series of pretty pictures, it's mainly messy and complicated and grace-filled in each moment. Family is such a beautiful mess and we are learning each new day to love the mess and not be ashamed. His grace is sufficient!
