Looking back over February 2016- My Birth Story

I cannot believe March is here already. A lot has gone on in my life in the past few weeks so I haven’t really done any serious comping since the end of January. The big thing in my life was the arrival of my gorgeous baby girl on the 8th February. So these past few weeks I have been enjoying every precious moment with her.
I only now feel ready to get back to some kind of normality. My birth experience was everything I didn’t want it to be. As you all know from my end of January posts that baby girl was keeping us waiting – in fact she ended up being 14 days late by the time she arrived!

Word of the Week 29/01/2015

This week I have felt very emotional. My baby girl still hasn’t arrived and I have been having a few tears over silly things. I am not normally an emotional person but these pregnancy hormones are having me shedding a tear over everything. A few people I know who were pregnant and due after me have have had their babies and this has made me upset more than once. I know my time will come very soon and I really cannot wait.

My midwife told me yesterday that I have a very relaxed and chilled out baby in me and she will come when she is ready. I just came home from my appointment and burst into tears. I managed to hold it in walking across the waiting room coming out.
I have been booked in to be induced 6th February if she doesn’t arrive within the next week. I am trying everything I can think of to help bring her along without being induced. It is not something I thought I would have to have.
So this week I have been feeling very emotional and I felt it appropriate to use emotional as my Word of the Week.

It has felt like I have had mine packed for ages in hope of her arriving just before her due date. Here I am at 40+4 still waiting with my bags packed at the bottom of the stairs.
Mine has been packed since 34 weeks!
