Today is World Prematurity Day. A day to bring awareness to the 1 in 9 babies being born too early. My water broke at 32w3d. The babies were content hanging out on the inside, while I was on hospital bed rest. However, due to pre-eclampsia, Rylee and Ayden were born a week later at 33w2d.
Born December 23rd, 2013 at 8:27 and 8:28pm, they spent 19 long days in the NICU. A relatively short stay compared to the several months in the NICU that many preemies spend. I am so happy and blessed to be able to say that today they are just shy of their 11 month birthday and both are very healthy!
|Rylee was 4 lbs, 10 oz and 16.5 inches long|
|Ayden was 5 lbs, 4 oz and 18.75 inches long|
