Every mother loves to tell the story about how their baby was born. It is like a common bond between women. When did the contractions start? did you get an epidural? how long did you push for? were you past your due date? did you have a c-section? It is fun... like trading war stories. We certainly have a right to brag. After all, we either squeezed something very large out of a small place or we had our bodies cut open and the baby pulled out of us. Come on, if you can't brag about that what can you brag about?
My first baby delivery was special because she was my first. The first grandchild on both sides. Very awesome. My second delivery was special because we were expecting a boy and got our precious McKenna - the most awesome shock of my life. My third delivery was special because I had it at home with no drugs. All 3 babies were a week late. All three nursed great after birth, had a loving family they were born in to, and melted my heart with one look. I am so blessed.
So, I had to share the birth story again (here). And some other posts right after the birth here, here, and here. Anyone out there care to share their stories? I love talking about babies, nursing, pregnancy. It is so awesome what our bodies can do. I have a friend, Paige, who is due any minute. I can't wait to hear her birth story!
