Eleven years ago.... #MagicMoments

This time eleven years ago I was about to embark on one of the biggest challenges of my life.....

This time eleven years ago I was terrified!!.....

I'd only ever been in hospital to have my appendix out and it was so rushed as it was about to burst I never had chance to really think about it so there was no fear!!

This time eleven years ago I was preparing myself to go into hospital and have a cesarean section....

To become a mother for the first time!!!!

I knew nothing about babies....I did childcare at college but that was just dealing with little one's when they could walk, talk and do things for themselves....Babies were a whole different thing!!

This time eleven years ago I was out shopping buying the last of things I needed for a baby!! Even though I'd bought everything weeks before but was convinced I'd forgotten something!! I was panic buying....lol

I had packed my bag to go to hospital weeks before and spent the afternoon eleven years ago unpacking and packing it convinced I'd packed to much then worrying whether I had enough....

I was terrified!!

But every second of fear was worth it!


Becky was born 10th of September 2002!

  1. That's a lovely Magic Moment. I'd never been in hospital at all before Monkey was born, and was terrified when I was on the verge of an emergency c-section. Luckily forceps did the job - but one more failed push and they were all ready to cut me open!

  10. Lovely post! I was 11 days overdue with my first...so it was less panic and more hurry up by that stage! Although, I ended up with an emergency c-section - the elective option is definitely a bit less scary :) Happy birthday to Becky xx

  14. A planned c-section must be such a different experience. I'm sure I would also be freaking out, you can only prepare so much for an unknown delivery date. A fantastic magic moment, you looked really good after going through the surgery.
