Waiting for "The Day"

As i started doing the countdown realising there was only more month to go, i just could imagine what the whole ordeal was going to be like. If i was going to be in pain for 3 hours, ten hours or even 24 hours like my sister in-law did.

Now that its over i can only be a pillar to someone who hasn’t gone through it yet. i can only assure them that the events are not the same…That its rare to go through axactly what your friend, mum or aunt went through because this issue is so often a bit exaggerated if i may say and different stories on how bad it is can only make one dread that last day.

For when i was waiting for his day to come, every person would come and tell me how theirs was dreadful, how it took forever, how they could not cope and eventually had to have a ceasarian and the worst how they lost their little angel before even setting eyes on it. Sad. So naturally it kept me quizzing too, waking up during the night thinking as the days got closer and feeling like there was no way out of it but to be brave and know that in the end it is all going to be worth it.

So when MY day came and i was rushed into hospital an hour before midnight, miraculously withing an hour the little one fought his way into the world and gave a cry announcing his presence to the world. His lips were trembling at the same time whilst the midwife was covering him up, i could not help but just break into tears. Tears of joy, tears of relief and all the pain simply faded away and i forgot i was in pain for only forty minutes before i got the most precious gift life could ever give…my handsome little bundle….
