Week 41 of My Pregnancy – Finally!

Christmas baby - Aron

After 2 sweeps, walking up and down a gazillion flights of stairs, travelling the whole of London and far too many raspberry leaf teas and pineapples, not to mention even some DIY acupressure, I finally give birth to my beautiful baby who decided to arrive a week late!!

Boy, was it a long and arduous journey.

Please check out Aron’s birth story for the gruesome details if you can stomach it. I do have to warn you that it is not pleasant. A little jealous though as my friend was 9cm dilated when she arrived at hospital and had her baby in a few hours! Everyone is different…
