How we really felt

just before our due dates...

Omg what a question!

To be honest with you I didn’t feel anxious at all. My baby was due in September and of course she was late ! Lol. I was booked in for an induction. Leading up to my due date I was so excited. All the stories you hear... You’re anxious or scared. I just didn’t feel any of those things, I felt deep down that everything was going to be alright.

Then knowing I was going for an induction the feeling leading up to that date was exactly the same! Because this was my first labour I hadn’t Googled too much, as I didn’t want to know too much. That was so my mind couldn’t wonder into the unknown and create silly ideas or scare me. And would you believe…it 100% worked for me!

I know a lot of people like to know and be prepared for everything so of course I had everything and more in my hospital bag, but I was cool, calm and enjoyed the process. Most of all I couldn’t wait to hold my precious little girl for the very first time. I trusted in my body and made sure to be aware of taking it careful & eating well. I think as a mother even when you haven’t met your baby yet, you just have this feeling of knowing if  they’re alright in there, or if somethings wrong I believe this also helped!

I felt exhausted, stressed and swollen like Charlie and the Chocolate factory when Violet turned into a blueberry and was being rolled around! But extremely excited to meet my little rainbow baby and to see what she looked like. It was definitely worth it all when I saw her little face.

I loved being pregnant but there was so many symptoms that I never knew about. People don’t discuss the weird stuff enough! I had a moment of anxiety around labour but that didn’t last long at all. I spent most of my pregnancy really excited for labour just to experience it!

I felt ready to have the baby!! I was so excited to meet her and couldn't wait to hold her and snuggle her.  My belly was so big I couldn't wait to feel comfortable again.  I also felt prepared, knowing I had my Tommee Tippee products waiting for us at home!
