What a lovely name. They pull through despite the bad start. I have 3 girls - Ella who is 3 and twins Abbie and Katie who are almost 13 months. Abbie had a horrible start to life too, she was rushed to neo natal with breathing problems, and straight onto cpap. She came off it after 12 hours, but was kept in for the rest of the week, but when released home, both twins ended up back in neo natal refusing to eat. Katie was later released, but Abbie was kept in for another 2 weeks - so 3 weeks in total. Should say they were premies though - 6 weeks early She is fine now, and in actual fact she is the wilder of the 2 now xx
Thanks everyone. Now that we're all home we're settling into a routine. Eva's really content and doesn't really ever scream the house down. A student midwife did say that because she's 2 weeks early she may get more vocal once her original due date comes.
