This time last year, I carried you in my womb, but now I carry you in my arms, absolutely grateful for this wonderful journey that I share with you .
This particular, Mother's Day is extremely special to me. Why? Firstly, it's officially my first one, of many by his grace and secondly, as most of y'all already know I had the most unexpected, spontaneous and shocking introduction into motherhood. My beautiful baby Mirai born ever so early 24/40 weeks to be precise. I LITERALLY watched her grow and did not know what each day was going to bring. All I could do is trust in the lord and hope for the best.
Having a baby in the Nicu (Neonatal intensive care unit)is like an intense experience that hits u bamb in the face. Tbh I had never even heard of Nicu before my experience. As naïve as this may sound I even completely forgot that severely premature babies are actually born on a daily basis.
Not only was i scared, worried, petrified, heartbroken, anxious, desperate to see her grow and eventually get discharged. I was also on the verge of loosing my mind from all the exhaustion, worry, and stress. Let's not even get started on my milk supply that was on high demand for her immune and her digestive system. But sadly wasn't flowing so great in the beginning for the obvious reasons. The fact that you have to wait hours, days, weeks to hold or even touch your baby.
You don’t get to dress your baby in all those adorable onesies, Instead you take vitals, do cares, and stick your hands through holes in a glass box to touch your precious baby. Then eventually you get to do skin to skin.. this was the hardest experience/ journey I have ever experienced in my life and I am so so thankful to God the Nicu days are all over now.
I am so grateful to have her home after 117 days spent in three different hospitals in total. From this, I continue to preach that God is faithful and I am more than certain that God knows, I am special to have been chosen to witness a Miracle. My miracle being born. We all know that God doesn't give people tasks that he knows they cannot handle. Happy Mother's Day my fellow Mothers and Nicu mamas
