Your biggest surprise with having a preemie? Personally, it was how I would feel about pumping for him. I had never intended to BF, but as soon as I knew my baby would be early there was no other option for me, before any of the nurses approached me I knew it's what I was going to do. I was scared about it.. I had Leo at 7.46pm, and when I got back to the ward at midnight I asked to pump, they suggested I waited until morning, so at 6am I asked them again, I was anxious and broke down in front of the BF nurse, but I did it!! I felt so PROUD and like I was doing something amazing for MY baby.. I never expected to feel good about it!
Your biggest worry with having a preemie? From day 1 of my pregnancy, I got it into my head I wouldn't be bringing my baby home in September.. and with every big bleed and scare I thought my baby had gone, then when my waters went at 25+6 I was terrified and actually said goodbye to my little baby on the way to the hospital! I held onto him until 28+3 and I still didn'[tthink he'd ever make it home. There's so much still flying around in my head, I can't make sense of my feelings about it all.. so I don't really know what my "biggest" fear was.. wow that didn't make any sense!
Do you like to dance?
I can't dance!! Altho after a few drinks I seem to know what I'm doing
What's your usual go-to meal?
Is this like, a quick easy meal?? lol
How did you choose your boys names?
It took us until I was about 8 months pregnant to choose Tylers!! lol.. He was Luke for a looong time, well, Luke if he was a blue bump! And Demi for a pink one.. then we decided on Tyler and Faith. He was then going to be Tyler James.. then my Mum text me and asked if I liked the name Jayden (she read about Britney Spears in the paper lol) so it changed to Tyler Jayden, but it sounded too much, so we shortened it to Jay!!
Leo was Noah/Jayden/Harley/Zane.. Noah being the #1 choice, but with our surname (Storm) we couldn't use it. Leo was on our list as a middle name.. Jayden Leo. But we didn't feel we could use Jayden, as it's too similar to Tyler's middle name!! In hospital it suddenly just felt right that my bump was a Leo (the lion, brave!) Tyler ALWAYS called my bump Riley so that's his middle name
what countries have you visited in Europe? Not many really.. lol, I've been to France, through Germany, several places in Spain and Switzerland (which was fab!!!)
do you have a middle name? Elizabeth
would you like to have more children? I think I would.. I can't imagine never being pregnant again. But DH says no, he's done, and last time made his mind up about that. I don't think I can ignore the fact that we always said we'd have 3 though, I doubt I'll be able to let go of a "3rd".. but the fear of a preemie/heavy bleeding will always be there
