3 Become 4 – Ethan’s Little Sister Is Here!

I never like to do anything easily and pregnancy is definitely one of those times for me. It has been a very dramatic and stressful three weeks in our house which ended in Ethan’s little sister arriving just over two weeks before her due date.

Our journey to her arrival included me being diagnosed with obstetric cholestasis. This resulted in trips to the hospital every other day for monitoring, this also meant lots of tablets and blood tests. Anyone who knows me knows that these two things on their own are big fears of mine. I also had to have steroid injections to prepare the baby for an early delivery, as we had no idea when she would need to be delivered.

When they decided it was time for the baby to come via c section Darren picked up a bug and had to go home. He missed the delivery and wasn’t able to visit us for over twenty four hours. Thankfully my mum was brave enough to come into theatre with me.

Finally with us all at home I decided I hadn’t had enough of using the NHS and an ambulance needed to be called for me as I’m suffering episodes of low blood pressure.

To say it’s been eventful would be an understatement, but Little E is here and we are starting our journey as a family of four.

      Thank you. Yes it was a bit eventful, I’m recovering slowly and being well looked after x

  1. Oh dear it sounds like a pretty stressful time and how awful that your partner couldn’t be there at the birth. I bet you are relieved it is all over and you can enjoy family life as a 4!
