The first time I ever saw my youngest son was in a photograph just hours old. He was so tiny, so fragile but so real! I remember looking at his shoulders and his little nose and not believing how perfectly formed they were. 790grams (13 and a bit tubes of wella colour) that’s what I kept comparing him to. I can’t help miss being pregnant feeling those (very annoying at 4am every morning) kicks or seeing the sudden ripple my tummy would make when the boys were rolling around. I feel my pregnancy was taken away, I didn’t get to do that sudden rush to the hospital when my waters broke spending hours in labour pacing up and down. I know most woman will probably envy that I didn’t have to do that haha. Instead we spent a week in hospital after I was diagnosed with twin to twin transfusion before my waters broke. I don’t know how we got through that week knowing that any day two babies were going to be born but we were only going to begin the new journey with one. The longest week of our lives! I was never going to share this photograph but now when I look at it I can’t believe how far we’ve come. This photo gave us so much hope. I’m so proud of this tiny little human and how much he has went through in such a short space of time. His start in life has been rough and we haven’t even started our lives together yet. I’m hopeful in the next few weeks we will have this little man home safe and sound, stronger than ever. Words cannot even begin to describe the love I feel for him and how much already he has changed me. He is the reason I have been able to keep going and wake up every morning and remind myself how lucky I am. My little starman 💙 To share our journey over social media was a decision I made and I’m so glad I am. The amount of people who are in the exact or similar circumstances all over the world is unreal and the support we have received is incredible from women in not only the uk but America to Australia I am so grateful to have you. I hope all of our children in the neonatal units make it home safely no matter how long it takes. ❤️ #tags4tots#nicubaby#neonatal#tttssurvivors#twinboy#babiesofinstagram#nicumum#nicudad#nicubaby#miraclemumma

Vi skulle først ha været hjem i morgen, men vi kom allerede hjem tirsdag aften. Det blev ikke som håbet!Esmeralda og Ingolf kunne slet ikke finde sig til rette i den lille hytte. De ville ikke sove, og hvis den ene ikke vrælede, så gjorde den anden! Alt hyggen blev ligesom revet væk... Har bare måtte konstatere at de stadig er for små, men vi kommer stærkt igen næste år☀️ #detenommer
My sweet baby! Nearly 17 months breastfeeding these two cuties and no end in sight! It brings us all comfort, day and night. Everything gets put aside so I can find a spot to cuddle these boys up with me to catch a few moments of bonding. Nourishment. Solace from overstimulation. A little snack to hold them off til dinner. A connection.
