Tom's birth story
16
Sun, 09-21-2008 - 12:57pm

Hello TTC board. I started off here before I graduated and now baby Tom has arrived. Krista has asked me to copy Tom's birth story over here, which I am now doing. However, I've seen your posts over on the Pregnant over 40 boardv too, so this story is not new to many of you:


"For anyone trying to move the at term baby TRY SALSA! It worked for me - DD and I had a good old dance with pelvic girations etc on Thursday evening, then we accompanied DH mushrooming ( a two-hour trip into the forest...), following which we all went to bed as usual. I noticed NOTHING which would indicate that I was any closer to labour than any of the previous evenings. Just think - at the speed he was born baby Tom could have arrived in the middle of the forest...


At 11.40pm I awoke to go to the bathroom, but at 11.45pm needed to go again - I thought this was strange. I then realised I must have started leaking amniotic fluid. At 11.50 it occurred that the awful cramps that I've been having for a couple of weeks were in fact now coinciding with the contractions. So I got up and walked around the house for 10 minutes.

I didn't see the picture when I read your birth story on the pg after 40 board. They are so cute together, and I can see the resemblance!

Congratulations Torielle!!! What a beautiful baby!


I was away and didn't even know you had given birth. How time flies, seems like only yesterday you announced your pregnancy...


What a wonderful story. Congratulations once again to you and family! You give me hope :)


P.S. keep posting pics.
