Advantages More rewarding than you can ever imagine
Disadvantages Alot of sleepless nights
December the 17th and I am waiting anxiously as it is the due date for my baby to be born. The day is passing a nothing seems to be any different.....I am still carrying this giant football around on the front of me. Its 11pm and sat there watching the TV I feel a painful twinge in my stomach. Uh oh it must be happening I thought !Through the night the contractions kept coming, getting stronger but remaining the same amount of time apart.
Well I was in this pain for the Sunday and Monday. On the Tuesday morning the pain was worse and was getting a lot worse through the day. I got Duncan to phone the hospital again and they told me to come back in again (at least this time it was 2pm so a more reasonable hour) so off we went again.This time I was examined and was only a bit further advanced than I was on the Sunday so they monitored my baby to see if it was ok. I was kept in hospital this time though.
I never thought that anything could ever beat that feeling of the midwife telling me and Duncan that we had a baby girl and hearing her cry for the first time, but everyday I have that feeling.
Everyday she does something new, something even more amazing than the last...........little things we take for granted, their first coo, their first smile, first laugh, it is an amazing feeling.Don't get me wrong it is a lot of hard work, a lot of sleepless nights and a lot of stress adjusting to a child but when I see her smile or have a cuddle I remember just how worthwhile it is.
I can quite honestly say that since the 21st of December everyday has been the happiest day of my life.
