So I started this amazing, scary journey last year October 2012 when after 7.5 years of trying and one miscarriage it finally happened.
There has been major hurdles in this pregnancy which terrified me and made me feel soooo vulnerable , I dealt with all the usual, morning sickness, headaches, blocked nose, spd, mood swings, sore boobs, love/hate food, skin changes, weight changes, etc
The conditions that terrified me were,
Gestational diabetes, in the end I was taking 15units of insulin per day plus six metformin tablets per day.
Pre eclampsia, came on suddenly at 34 weeks, 4plus protein, headaches, bloated, felt ill, high blood pressure, double vision
Loss of amniotic fluid - I did not know that my waters were leaking from week 33, just thought bladder was a bit weak!
So 34 weeks plus six days went to the mau with all the above symptoms, and within two days my c-section was booked. Infact they classed me as an emergency.
So what what it like! A blur...... Everything happened so fast.....I stayed in two nights before my c section, had insulin given to me for 24 hours, then the next morning was the op, I was a bit scared about the injection in the back but actually it wasn't bad,
It felt weird having pope pull a baby from me, didn't hurt but just odd!
George was expected to be around six pound at 35 weeks as I was so big, but nope 4 pound 15 ounces, and no need for any special care, wow!
He is tiny like a doll, hubby had to rush out o get premature baby clothes and micro nappies....so cute xxxx
A massive thank you to you ladies on here, you have been brilliant with advice and friendship, made my experience so much better
Love you all xxxxx
