Disclaimer: Just a quick note to remind you that child birth is quite a graphic, gory thing so if you are squeamish and don’t like hearing about blood, poo, vomit, stitches etc., you should probably pass on this post. Also my labour went on for twenty eight and a half hours from the time of… Continue reading Indie’s Birth Story
As I write this I am two days overdue (although it will be four days post due date that this goes live). I am going to post this regardless of whether I have had the baby in that time or not because this is more a reflective post on the pregnancy as a whole, rather… Continue reading And So We Wait…
