This time last week I was 8 days overdue, heavy, tired and frustrated. I was hoping that the sweep I had booked would get things moving and…..it worked!
My beautiful daughter, Amalia Grace, was born on 21st July at 6.35am. J is a very proud big brother and it melts my heart to see them together
I always wanted two children, a boy followed by a girl, so I am an incredibly happy and proud ‘one of each’ mum. After taking two years to conceive J and suffering a miscarriage last year there were many times when I never thought we would be lucky enough to be in this position.
But, I can categorically say – I am never doing that again! I had a severe hemorrhage with J and needed two blood transfusions and this time baby A had shoulder dystocia which led to an incredibly painful and traumatic birth.
We are now both at home and recovering well and despite, or maybe because of, the difficulties getting here I feel blessed to have both my gorgeous children and know my husband and I have completed our little family.
