Hey everyone – I’ve tried multiple times to write out the story of Joe’s birth. I’ve typed, deleted, thrown whole posts in the trash… I kept getting frustrated and wondering why I just couldn’t get it to sound the way that I wanted.
Then I realized – nothing that I write can ever convey exactly what took place, and I don’t even want to try. It was a short labor – only 8 hours – and I was in the hospital for about 4 hours before leaving again. I was there for less than 2 hours before he was born. Everything went quite quickly and it was amazing. Chris was amazing. I had a fantastic midwife, and I’m so glad that my mom could be there from the moment that Joe entered this world.
I’ve written the story down for myself, but I don’t feel like sharing it with the internet. There are some things that are meant just for us 🙂
