day before labor
surprise! I have a two week old baby?!
I've recently decided to give my son an additional birthday.
Porter is entitled to 10/8 as his official birthday, but also today. 10/21. Today was the day that I was supposed to head in to the hospital and have my planned C-Section for my little breech baby. But instead I am sitting here with my almost two week old baby boy on my lap, trying to write out my birth story to post here soon. Easier said than done. There are parts of that day that I want to remember but can't ... and then there are parts that I remember but oh lordy do I wish I could forget! But, that's the beautiful thing about a birth story. Every one is unique. Every one is different. And as far as I can tell, none of them go as planned.
So, I'm off to remember the good, the bad and the ugly.
Which may or may not include me biting my doctor.
That one falls under the "ugly" category.
Oh and I just remembered. Porter should get a third birthday as well. 11/4 is his official due date so why the heck not ... let's add one more. Presents and cake galore!
