I never thought I would ever be one of those women who didn’t know they were pregnant yet there I was laying on the table being told I was thirty six weeks pregnant. I never forget feeling like my whole world was spinning, my heart was racing remembering all the wrong things I did. Drinking alcohol, smoking, lifting heavy objects, all the things that were a no no when expecting. I walked out of the room in utter shock and burst into tears I was already a single mum to two beautiful children, however I was in the middle of a custody dispute has well has just getting divorced, could I really bring another child into this world? The truth is four weeks to the day I went in for my scheduled C-section and delivered a perfectly healthy little boy. I wont deny the first few weeks where a nightmare, trying to run a household (cleaning, cooking, taking the washing downstairs to the laundry) while recovering from a C-section was hard and at times extremely painful but I made it. My little miracle is now 14months old and growing every day.
