I didn’t reach my due date because my little girl came early so my reaction was as mix of emotions.
I was mainly in shock that I was in early stages of labour, I thought I was having braxton hicks! We went to the day assessment unit at the hospital, and it turned out I was 4cm dilated and was going to be having my daughter later that night… (well the early hours of the morning!)
It was the best feeling and most scary all at the same time. The pandemic made everything feel more uncertain, the fears of getting Covid and not being able to have our parents there for emotional support. But me and my partner got through it as a team, and we have a beautiful daughter together ❤️
