I am so lucky. I have THE MOST devine little girl who was born 2950 grams( 6 pounds 8 ounces), 46cm in length, thick dark brown/black hair. I have never been so happy in my whole life. The birth was really a beautiful experience. Enja was playing, Dr X had the lights as low as possible. TIm was by my side and got to cut the cord. The midwife Theresa gentle and kind and very calming and Dr X was excellent, he’d briefed his staff to perfection, followed my birth plan and everything went perfectly. I watched our beautiful baby come out of me and she was just a vision. I couldn’t comprehend what was happening it was like I was in a dream. The joy I felt was unexplainable, the love I felt for WIll was so extreme as was the love I felt for my daughter.
Tonight at 7.38pm she’ll be 4 days old and she has been great, such a joy. We were going to call her Sarah but when we saw her TIm leant over and said, she’s not a Sarah she’s a Stephanie, and he was spot on so that’s the name we gave her. I have enjoyed each moment and although breastfeeding is not as easy or pain free as I had imagined, I love it! I can’t believe that I can be so lucky it’s so daunting being so happy because I feel like I don’t deserve it and I’m scared.
