Memory lane Monday
I have so many memories from my labour it’s crazy! I remember Andrew going to get me slush puppies from the shop downstairs and I remember my family coming to visit the night before I went into labour. One of my strongest memories is being on the special care ward after giving birth to Daisy. I was there for three or so days and on the last day I wanted to go home SO much that I forced myself up and out of bed. when the doctors did their little walk around I made sure they saw me sitting up on a chair out of bed and looking very awake and as healthy as I could make myself look!
They did a few more tests and said I could go back upstairs to the ward and then soon be discharged. After being transferred and feeling so incredibly happy that going home was finally coming into sight I felt strange. I felt like I was in a little dream and everything was blurry and nothing actually made sense. I remember thinking to myself ‘act normal!’ I tried so hard to act normal because I didn’t want to go back down to be cared for!
Andrew started to talk to me, in a very normal and calm manner and I turned round and shouted at him! I shouted at him to stop shouting! Haha. The woman doing the medication round looked at me as if I was a complete and utter weirdo. I was all over the place! After a glass of water and a lay down I soon calmed down.
But I just remember the feeling so clearly!
