Baby Hunter's Preemie Story:
I'm a type 1 diabetic, since I was 9. We had our daughter in May 2011, 39 weeks being induced at 6 lbs 15 oz. We found out the summer of 2012 we were expecting again, and it was boy - we were so excited! This pregnancy was a lot harder and more complicated than the first. I had felt sick all Sunday, Monday I had my regular OB check up along with my high risk check up, didn't make it to either. I was so sick and started throwing up, felt as if I had to go to the bathroom and push, got scared and told my husband I had to go to the hospital, his mom picked me up so he could stay with our daughter. We showed up at the hospital at 1:30 pm on Monday, and I was 4cm! I had been in labor all weekend apparently!
Hunter Aaron was born at 34 weeks and 4 days at 3:43pm on February 11, 2013. I got ready to push but his heart wasn't having it. I ended up with an emergency c-section. Both of his adrenal glands were hemorrhaging, along with a blood clot in his left arterial vein. He was on oxygen and a feeding tube. His blood clot passed after two weeks. He was in the NICU for exactly one month! As of today he is almost 7 months (5 1/2 corrected) and is healthy and happy! He is the happiest baby I have ever seen and his sister just loves being a big sister!
You are precious baby Hunter!
