6 years ago today…

…Our son was due. It was one of the hottest August’s I remember. I was the size of a small country having piled on 4 stone in weight in just 9months. I had a walk John Wayne would be envious of and I had what felt like a small elephant curled up inside me. I had no signs of labour.

Me pregnant with J at 40+6weeks

We all knew when he would make his appearance. We all knew it would be in 8 days time on September 4th. How did we know that? For that was the day we didn’t want him to arrive, myself in particular.
You see, September 4th is MY birthday! and THIS birthday wasn’t just ANY birthday!! It was to be my 21st Birthday, and the last thing I wanted was to spend my very special day in labour.
And guess what happened…. 8 days after his due date….
J at 1hour old

Baby J was born, September 4th 2005 at 16:34 weighing 7lbs 5Oz.
I can’t believe that it has been nearly 6 years, when it feels like only yesterday.
