A big life update

Who knew that my last blog post would be my last pregnancy related update as my waters broke just after midnight on Monday 18th December.
Cue a lot of drama in the form of severe dehydration, infection, burst valves, my mum fainting and my boyfriend vomiting, resulting in my darling daughter making her appearance via emergency c-section at 7:06pm that evening!

And do you know what?!

I wouldn't change it for the world. I'm not going to do a detailed birth story as it's something that I would like to keep quite private, plus, it is not as positive as I was hoping it was going to be. It's taken me some time to accept that my beautiful plan of having a natural waterbirth using hypnobirthing techniques just didn't happen.

However, it is true what they say... once you see your little baby for the first time you are so overcome with love and for me, relief! You don't quite forget the pain straightaway but nearly 8 weeks on, it is definitely beginning to fade.

Having a baby and making it to 'full term' delivering at 39 weeks was and is the most proudest moment of my life.

I am certainly one lucky lady.
