This Time Last Year

Before Induction

This time last year I was lying in a hospital bed, nine days overdue and sick and tired of being pregnant. I was scheduled to be induced the next day. But someone had other plans. I had no idea what was coming to me in the early hours of the following morning. At about 5am I was wheeled to the delivery suit at 3cms dilated, having been in labor for just over an hour. 20 minutes (and several fainting episodes) later a screaming baby was plonked on my chest. I cannot believe that same tiny baby boy will be turning one tomorrow.
