My pregnancy was text book, not what I was expecting at all. I thought that with all the problems we had encountered to get pregnant that there were bound to be issues along the way. But no I got sick when your supposed to be sick, craved the kind of stuff you are meant to, had all the usual aches and pains that come with being the size of a beached whale.
What I did not have though was a text book birth.
Whenever I am asked about the birth of my daughter and what it was like my reply always shocks "brilliant, I loved it!" Yip I am a lucky, lucky woman I just made it to the hospital in time Eva's head was sitting there waiting to be pushed out & I had no idea, she arrived just 45 minutes after getting to the hospital.
All in all I was in first time labor for 1 hour 45 minutes and I did it all with just a few puffs of gas and air. It was the most amazing experience of my life!
And so it was that at 11.14am on Sunday the 24th June 2007 we officially became 3 and my dream of being a Yummy Mummy was fulfilled!
