I was finally able to hold my little girl after 26 hours! She is so strong! It has been so hard hearing babies cry and my arms being empty. I am being discharged tomorrow and the thought of leaving her behind breaks my heart. But the thought of seeing my other little loves after more than a week is so strong too... Motherhood is so beautiful and so hard at the same time. God has been so good and we will continue to trust Him to get the strength to get through!
From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another. John 1:16 Our little girl Eloise Ine Hope was born this morning by emergency c section at 30 weeks and 2 days, weighing around 4 pounds. We pray that she will continue to do well, and that her breathing will improve. Also that the pain and nausea will subside quickly from me. Thank you everyone for your prayers and concerns! 🖤
Today has been another good day. Hearing the heartbeat is a highlight of my day. The resident came in and said: 'wow is that ever a happy baby' NICU came to talk and the outlook is positive. We are taking it day's at a time, than hopefully a week at a time. But to hear how much the risks reduce and NICU time as well as a positive breastfeeding journey and having baby home with us so much sooner we are asking for the Lord's mercy and safety over this little one to stay in as long as possible. Thank you for your continued prayers and support, I feel overwhelmed with gratitude! 🖤
Today has been so uplifting with lots of messages, Bible verses and phone calls. Thank you all for the offers of help and meals. I can not thank you enough! I had to sign the paperwork for an emergency c section. Baby is footling breech so no other option as it's not safe at all. They say there is a 50% chance it will be born this week but we trust in Gods perfect plan and pray we can make it as far as possible. Everything today has pointed to His faithfulness! 🖤 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord ’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23
I am sorry to say that all sessions have been cancelled as my water broke yesterday and I have been admitted to hospital. I am currently 29 weeks pregnant and we are clinging to these words my husband has been preaching on the last few week. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 Please pray for safety for our little one, we pray it will stay inside for a while longer to grow stronger, but also for strength for our children at home, with covid there are no visits allowed except for outside and they do not recommend me walking the halls at the moment. Please message my friend @alyshajoossephotography I am sure she would be happy to help with your session needs. 🖤
This image still gives me all the feels! I am really hoping my own children will cooperate when I am photographing our own little one in a couple of months. Something to do with photographer child syndrome. 🤭
