My lg was born at 31 weeks because I had cancer that started to progress & spread. My doctor phoned me with test results on the Monday & booked my c-section for that Wednesday. There was no time to plan everything. Thankfully we knew she would be delivered early & was actually waiting for a birth weight of 2 kg’s, so everything was ready for her arrival. At 4:05 pm that Wednesday my lg was born weighing 1.8 kg’s & after that I had my tumours cut out & had a radical hysterectomy. She was in ICU for a month & 1 week. It was the most emotional time of my life & don’t wish the experience on anyone. It does get better, little by little, everyday.
Today she is a little bit behind her milestones but is a happy healthy 10 month old weighing over 10 kg’s with no problems.
We are truly blessed!
