Meet Julia Stoelwinder

Meet our little bundle of joy. Born on 19 November, a day short of my 30th birthday.

Baby Julia
Yes.. she’s adorable 🙂

We’ve had several scares throughout the pregnancy.. the VSD, aortic coarctation and on our last checkup, she supposedly weigh 3.8kg and the heart specialist said a possible early sign of heart failure. You can imagine the many stresses we’ve gone through and with her already being in full-term, the doctors agreed that its time to get her out. So we did.

Thankfully, everything was fine during the birth. The specialists were all on standby and she was safely delivered with a healthy weight of 3.285kg and length of 50cm. She was then placed under observation at the neonatal icu. My heart ached every time I saw her with all the tubes and not being able to stay with her throughout the day, since I was in a different ward. She was constantly being monitored by the heart specialist. Four days later, we were given the green light to bring her home.

Since then, we’re getting used to feeding, burping, changing, entertaining and being entertained by her every 2-3 hours. Yes.. parenthood is a lot of work. And we’re enjoying it.. unless we’re sleepy of course! It’s been hard work and thankfully we have the support and help from family members.

Unfortunately though, in our recent checkup.. the heart specialist has advised us of the need for her to go for a surgery to correct the coarctation. We are worried but we know its important for her to go through it. For now, we are praying and hoping everything will go well.
