Today is my son Mr K’s 5th birthday. Five years ago, I had a show on the afternoon of Wednesday 14th Nov, followed by a strong contraction just after midnight (into Thursday 15th Nov now). Being 40+ weeks pregnant, I was so ready to go into a labour. I had to get to the hospital to have antibiotics as I carried group B streptococcus. I still remember calling the hospital begging them to admit me. They refused and said come back when I had 10 minute contractions. It was another 18 hours before I had 10 minute contractions. We went into the hospital and had two course of antibiotic before I requested my midwife to have my water bag broken. The next 10 minutes was a blur. Suddenly, Mr K’s blood pressure and heart rate dropped. Emergency bells rang and suddenly approximately 10 medical professionals ran in. Within seconds, Mr K was born. There was a moment of silence followed by the most beautiful sound came. He cried! (Now, this is the most annoying sound from him!)
Now, this little man personally requested that he wanted a Vtech camera for his birthday. We bought it but twice had to return it to the shop as both times, there were problems with the screen. He was so disappointed. So I took him to a toy shop and he decided to choose a playmobil Pirate Ship. Now I have to build it up for him to surprise him in the morning. Took me an hour to build this!
