I can’t complain too much about my pregnancy, but my birth experience was pretty bad. I’m not gonna lie. Everything I didn’t want to happen, happened. That dream birth I was looking forward to certainly wasn’t meant for me. I felt so many emotions during my stay in the hospital: anxious, weak, powerless, sad, hopeless….the list goes on.
And then I was told I had to get a c-section. I just laid there and cried. All I wanted was was to meet my baby.
The surgery was horrible. But when I heard my sons voice for the first time, I smiled. And then I got to see his adorable face, and he smiled. And even though waves of nausea consumed me, I knew that soon, it would all be over.
And here I am today, almost 11 months later. Where does the time go? I feel like I’m going to blink and we will be celebrating his 1st birthday. Just another month and our sweet boy will enter a whole new journey. And us as well as parents. It’s all so exciting and a bit overwhelming. But the adventure awaits us.
