Eight days ago a little boy entered our life and changed it forever.
Never before have I felt so much love and now I finally understand what all mum’s are talking about.

My water broke at 2:15 in the morning on the 11th and at 14:37 a healthy little boy came to the world.
My wish for a normal birth changed when he choose to lye bum down and c. section felt like a safer option for the baby.
So after checking with ultrasound at arrival in the hospital to see if he had turned around or not (which he hadn’t) we just had to wait for a gap in the schedule.

When my water broke contractions started and they were coming steady every 9-10 minutes, being around 1 minute long. As the hours passed by they got stronger and at noon I couldn’t ignore them anymore. As they also started to come closer I rang my ”help button”.
That speeded it up a bit and suddenly it was my turn…

To get his little body on my chest after carrying him for 9 months was the strongest feeling I have ever had. Everyone have told me that this will be your long wished (and missed) gold medal in a big championship.
I say it’s way beyond that!

I look down at this little mixture of Martin and myself and the whole world stops. All that’s important is him and the love I feel is endless and it grows stronger for every minute that pass.

Morris, You are better than Gold and I love you to the moon and back!

An update about the Winner from my “Gender & Weight competition” is coming soon, so stay tuned!
