Baby

This time last week I was in labour. It seems so hard to believe, it wasn't meant to happen that way at all. I woke up that morning with the slow realisation coming over me that it hadn't all been just an upsetting dream.

Labour was about 7 1/2 hours long, my shortest by a long way. Drug free.....do two panadol count? Baby L.T. was born, with a tiny bit of that 'oh wow' factor I've heard about in regards to a natural, drug free birth. All 320 grams of him. He never took a breath, we didn't expect him to. We spent an hour with him, the midwives took hand prints and footprints for us.

We said our hellos and goodbyes.

We cried.

Oh Cat.

Oh dear sweet lovely, suffering Cat. That is news and an experience too terrible to explain or to understand fully but I am so, so sorry. Sapphire and LC are in this tiny Geneva room with me and heard my cry. They too want me to send you a hug or seventeen.

I don't know how things can be made better for you dear Cat but I hope that you'll smile sometime soon.
