I have an admission to make: Sometimes I still struggle with my son’s premature birth. Although he is three and is doing very well despite his early start, I still struggle with the fact that my pregnancy ended three months early. Day to day, it doesn’t bother me as much as it used to, and like everything, life goes on. I even had a full-term baby boy after a premature delivery, but some days I can’t help but think about what I had went through.
Isn’t it the absolute truth that nothing in the world can prepare you for your baby’s arrival? In my case it was babies, and my 25 year old self thought it was all going to be calm and lovely, amazing and beautiful when the twins arrived – well let me tell you that it was all of those things… eventually!
