C-Section (I'm due to have my 2ND baby via section on 14Th September 2011 and wrote this to describe how
it feels lol)
Lying down on the bed with my body froze still,
The air waits in silence for a little cry to fill,
A big blue screen stands in front so I can't see it start,
The only thing I can feel is the beat of my heart.
The time seems to drag; I want it to pass,
So I can be a mummy to my princess at last!
The surgeons all mumble and pass tools to each other,
You wonder what's going on under that hospital cover.
The feeling is like pots being washed in your tummy,
As the doctors prepare to make you a new mummy.
It's pulling and tugging as the nurse then says,
"Baby's birth is only a few seconds away!"
So you try to prepare yourself for that moment to come,
You can't wriggle in excitement because your body is numb,
but the love in your heart and the pride that you feel,
Makes you want to explode as your dreams become real.
The moment you hear it, the 1st cry that comes out,
You know moments like this are what life's all about,
As the surgeon holds the baby up for you to see,
This little person is mine, she came out of me!
And as you're sewed up and the baby is took to be weighed,
You know life is now perfect and your pathway is made,
For you are a mummy and nobody can ever replace,
The 1st time you ever saw your baby's face.
