After a natural, 10 hour labour she popped out to greet the world. I had prepared myself for another boy; surprise surprise… A beautiful little girl.
6 hours later, as the clock was readying to strike midnight, we were home.
Not a bad effort, for a 16 hour hospital stint, not all of that unpleasant.
Thank you to the very kind Jodi who provided support and tips on how to turn a breech baby. This brand new wee lady was quite the active one. I swam a lot in the week before her birth and tried positive mantras (stress levels were very high as a cesarean was very low on my bucket list). She managed to come around to my way of thinking though, and the birth went smoothly.
At just over two weeks old she has charmed everyone around her.
A girl. Well I’ll be.
