My stork arrived early...
Just a quick post to say that I am very pleased to announce that on the 1st May 2017 our baby girl was delivered safely, and happily, at Bumrungrad Hospital with the aid of Dr Somsri and team, my doula, Rasee Govindani, and of course my wonderful husband.
I went into early labour 9 days early whilst eating our favourite food in our favourite restaurant - xiao long bao in Din Tai Fung - and 17 hours later I delivered our bundle of joy.
I am very pleased to say that, whilst I won't lie - labour friggin hurts! - I asked, and was given, an epidural at 10cms dilated - the team were very respectful of our birth plan, and we got everything we asked for.
Our baby girl was never out of our sight post delivery, and eye drops and vitamin K were administered, after checks were done, in the room with us, whilst Hep B and BCG was administered a couple of days later in the nursery, again with us by her side and immediate cuddles and kisses.
I will write more about how we managed to get the birth we wanted just as soon as I can...but for now I have some very important cuddles to give!
Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions, I have already mastered the art of one handed typing, but I might not be blogging for a few weeks.
Big hugs and kisses to everyone out there that is TTC, pregnant or just starting their family.
It's all such a precious time, be gentle to yourselves!
