A week ago

A week ago I went for a long walk in the bitter March cold and had to fight against the wind. But I told myself I needed that walk to keep active and to it was a good excuse to get rid of the cobwebs.
A week ago I ordered some spicy food and later in the evening I ate some pineapple, as I had done many times in the last fortnight. You see, I like those old wives' tales and urban legends that talk about how to bring on labour.
A week ago I dried my hair properly and wore make up for the first time in a while. It made me feel good to look a bit better than the casual person I had become because of staying home for so long.
A week ago I had no idea my labour would start that very night, and that by Monday afternoon I would be a mum. Your mum.
There truly aren't enough words to express how overwhelmingly in love I am with my daughter. Everything is new, magic, cute, mesmerising. Love at first sight.


  1. I almost cry reading this post! Such beautiful feelings you're having. Take care mommy!

  2. I know that feeling very well, and also I know how terrified I was the first day at home, but 5 years later and two lovely children, the scary moments are over. Enjoy!

  3. Félicitations ma belle...
    Eh oui la vie est pleine de surprises, le début du travail, cet amour qui naît et que l'on n'arrivait pas à s'imaginer.
    Comment se prénomme le petit ange ?
    Bises !
