Welcome to day 26 of the April blog challenge am I the only one who can’t believe this month is almost over? Today let’s write about and share a day we would like to relive.
One of the best days of my life was the day that Bella was born but I don’t know if I’d relieve that day over again just because it was a lot of work. Although it was worth it and I’d go through labor again if we have another child. I didn’t really mind labor. I spent months being afraid of labor. I have a phobia of hospitals and needles and especially of needing to have a c-section because that would mean surgery. I am a little less fearful of hospitals and needles after my stroke but at the time of her birth I was scared. I was lucky and her birth was pretty simple, she was a little early so smaller than I was expecting. I was almost 10lbs at birth and the average baby in my family is usually around 9 lbs but my cousin was over 11lbs. So I was expecting a big baby. Her being early was helpful and she was just under 7lbs which in my family made her seem like a preemie in size.
I also loved that day because we didn’t find out gender till birth so it was a surprise we had been waiting for. I didn’t have any feeling either way and didn’t really have a preference. I could imagine life with a girl or a boy. Everyone thought I was having a boy though. So it was exciting to find out if people were going to be right or wrong. It was great to find out she was a little girl.
So now it's your turn to share your post, link up everyday in April
