Ok so we’ve arrived in the labour ward and had a lovely team meet us. All checks have been done and I’m sat here all gowned up :). So far the experience could not be more different from an emergency situation or be going any smoother.
How are we feeling? Well it’s all a bit surreal, here we are chatting away and as long as there are no emergencies in the next hour or so, we are first in so I’ll be walking down to theatre and she’ll be delivered! So we feel excited as well as we can’t quite believe we’ll have a little girl very soon!
For all mummies who have left or will be leaving their little ones to go and have another baby, it is an odd feeling! I said bye to him this morning (he wasn’t very happy about mummy and daddy leaving) and he stood at the kitchen window with my mum as we drove off and I thought to myself, “it’ll never be just us again”. There was an element of me that felt sad with this thought however I just told myself that we are about to do something which is truly amazing and one day he’ll understand especially when he has a little play buddy to be best friends with. On top of this he’ll now be having so much fun with Nannie he’ll have forgotten we have even left…….(keeping perspective)!
So, not long now and I’m itching to go! I can’t stop wondering how big she’ll be and what she’ll look like but more importantly just holding onto her being healthy.
Have a fabulous day!
