Hello baby!

I have a few minutes while waiting for the midwife so I thought I would quickly post.

Jan and I have a daughter! Born 16 December 2021 via planned c-section. Despite being hospitalised on 9th November with too little amniotic fluid I actually made it to 37 weeks. She was on oxygen after birth but that was removed fairly quickly and now she’s doing really well other than some problems maintaining her temperature. Yesterday she was transferred to the children’s hospital and today is the start of a stressful time for her with lots of tests to find out how the spina bifida will affect her. We are completely in love with her and couldn’t be happier.

For blogging purposes her name shall be Zyma (Ukrainian for winter).

There may be tough times ahead for her (and you) but I pray God will hold you and your longed for daughter in the palm of his hand.
