The Gallery - Birth
This weeks theme over at http://stickyfingers1.blogspot.com/search/label/The%20Gallery is Birth.
I dont have any photos on my laptop that I could have used for this theme so I have uploaded these two, (apologies for the poor quality!). They show pictures of my son on his first ever day and I put them into a scrap book that I made from the age of 0-5.
The first picture was taken when Jacob was about 12 hours old and is my favourite of him. The second picture is a page I made for the scrapbook, detailing his important bits!!
It was and still is, one of the most incredible days of my life and such a surreal experience. I wont go into details as we all know how we entered the world, but I was in labour for two days overall, but 5 hours once I got to hospital. I only had gas & air as they refused me an epidural, (which Im quite pleased about in hindsight!) and after a little panic where his heartbeat slowed down, Jacob was born just as it began to snow outside!! I fell in love with him instantly and being a mum to him is the best job out of the three I do!! I still think about this day at least once a week as I cant believe I went through it, but I would gladly do it all again as its so rewarding!! Watch this space......!!!
