I still can’t believe that I actually gave birth. One reason is the she should still be inside me until May and it’s just so surreal having this itty bitty person around.
Second reason is that I’ve always been terrified of birth. Seriously, so scared. And some of that fear was justified because, of course, it was painful. To say the very least. But so incredibly worth it.
It could have been worse, especially since it was my first time. I started feeling contractions around 8:30-9:00 pm (after having worked all day and just thought I was constipated) and spent 25 minutes pushing and had my daughter at 1:00 am. Overall, a very exciting experience.
