Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!
Here’s the lovely story about giving birth to Rowan on Tuesday, March 15:
9:30am – Midwife checkup and I had my membranes scraped (sounds worse than it is…). Already 5cm dilated.
11:00am – Took the midwives cocktail*. (Bottoms up!)
1:00-2:00pm – Midwives cocktail kicks in (Bottoms down…)
Now, while in hindsight a labour that lasted less than an hour seems awesome, in reality it was just stupid.
I especially don’t recommend going into labour during ferry traffic.
Thanks to all the nurses that I yelled at during those special 9 minutes after we arrived and the ones that took care of me the 2 days I had to stay in the hospital to recover.
But this happy ending does have a tragic side. I was looking forward to this the most.
So can we all have a moment of silence:
*5 drops lemon verbena, 2 tbsp castor oil, 1 cup peach juice, almond butter on toast. Check with your professional before attempting. Whoo-damn.
