Twenty years ago today I went into labour two weeks overdue with our second Son. I was in hospital already as I'd had a show and was possible C-Section. I had been told during my first pregnancy that I will never give birth naturally as my pelvis is far too small (Wish they could say the same about the rest of my body, lol.)
Anyway because I had moved to another area, the Docs at my new antenatal clinic told me that was a load of tosh...Of course I could give birth naturally, apparently my birthing canal is a perfect shape...Wit Woo, Look at me! Because of this they would let me have a trial labour.
I made friends with the girl in the bed next to me who was in labour, she had no birthing partner so I kinda slipped into the role of rubbing her back etc. The poor girl was getting extremely frustrated as nothing was happening after 24 hours. While I was supporting this new 'Mum to be' I started to get a bit of a belly ache and asked the nurse for a paracetamol. "Lets take a little look at you, pop yourself on the bed" I was actually thinking "What do you need to look for...I've only got a belly ache!" When all of a sudden I heard a gasp and a "Good God Girl...You are 8 Cm's dilated!!!!"
"Does that mean I'm in labour Nurse?" I asked nervously.
To cut a long story short my first Doctor in London was completely and utterly right...I couldn't give birth naturally and ended up having an emergency C-Section just as I thought I would...Silly Doctor!
So Our Baby is 20 years old today and when he was little we used to call him 'Fluff' because his hair was white blond and all fluffy.
Now his hair isn't all fluffy but he is just as cute...
Happy Birthday Baby Boy...We Love you Loads X
