The Gallery - Birth

The birth of my son is one that i don't often think about. It wasn't enjoyable or a nice time for me. Strange i hear you say, most people cant wait to meet the little person that has been growing inside them for 9 months. I was scared, alone and single!.

Here is my son born 9/1/2003 at 19:49pm. He reminded me of a Capuchin. The monkey, how they would lie or sit with their hands on top of each other.

The birth lasted 21 hours. I had no idea what was happening. It started early hours, back ache and a little stomach ache too. A bath eased it and i went back to sleep, woke and hour later with more pains, drifted back off, rinse and repeat.

At 7 am i got up and rang my mom. After moving to a new town some 20 miles away from my family, the 'father' of my child having ran away to America to marry someone he met on the Internet to return 3 month later and abandon me in this town. Anyways i rang my mom who suggested i ring my midwife as it sounds as if I'm in labour. I cant be Ive another 3-4 weeks left yet!!

Rang my midwife whom congratulated me and said I'm going to have a baby. Lol i was terrified! 19 and no one there. People i knew where not up out of bed, or were out so i was on my own.

I sat for hours wondering what to do. Eventually i left for the hospital at around 2 pm. After been checked over by the nurse/midwife to find i was 4 cm dilated. Strange all i wanted was to watch cartoons lol. Yes kind of childish i know but it helped.
By the time corrie was coming back from its interval Kian Lee had arrived.
He was so tiny, weight 6Ibs 6oz.

Been a 'young' mom and really not that clued up about child birth etc all i had with me were my things and enough for one night for Kian. We ended up staying in for 3 nights 4 days as he wasn't keeping his food down properly.

My mom arrived 10 mins after he was born.

Here are a selection of pictures how they grow !
