This is her 8 days of life. During her 7 days of life, she was admitted in NICU due to premature. It was quite lonely and sad after deliver, having to watch your neighbour bed, have baby with them. A sudden thought of, did i really delivered last night? Babies crying, mummies fetch their babies, me in the other hand with my iphone n ipad to occupy my self. Later when hub came, he told me 'u want to see the baby?' I need to go to other level to visit her. Looking at her in the incubator, getting antibiotics, what more can i say with words- her 1st day of life. I started to stimulate milk from my breast using machine.
2nd day, i still in d ward. So its easy for me to visit her, having to know she was in d same building. Friends are coming to visit me even they know they cant see the baby. Later in d afternoon, nurse told me i can be discharged already. Happy for me, but baby still in NICU. I learn to breastfeeding her.
2nd n 3rd day, bby getting jaundice. Nothing i can say, they said due to her condition, they will getting jaundice. 4th day the jaundice lessen, the 5th day she getting again, 6th day recover n monitoring stage in d incubator of her temperature. 7th day she has been put out on baby cot. She allowed to discharged!
Everyday during her life in NICU, i will came with my hub sending breast milk for her. The hospital encouraged breast feed for premature baby. If it happened to be the time their feed the babies, the nurses ask mummies to breastfeed or feed the baby themselves. Its quite convenience where they have rooms to pump breast milk with their own equipment. Thus while visit her, i will try to add more stocks for her.
Real parenthood start on her 7th day! Sleepless nite.. Changing diapers n look after her.. Wow! I really need to cope up!
Wokey! Chiao n salam
