Welcome to this world, Sean!
November 24. Around noon I arrived at Cascais Hospital with painful contractions and made another CTG. The obstetrician said the labor hadn't started, so I went back home... unfortunately the pains went on every ten minutes like clockwork. I managed to have lunch and and be a bit around, but I couldn't finish the bags + pillows I was creating for our wonderful clients and friends. (You know me, even in these intense moments I was still thinking about kittn...)
At night I went back to the hospital, where I stayed until morning. The contractions went on all night, it was terrible. At 9.30 am I was taken to the delivery room. Everyone was professional and cool + they talked to me all the time... I was a bit scared, but I haven't realized when I heard já está. The radio played Don't stop me now by Queen. Then it took forever until I heard his voice! Actually it was more like a very tender cry, two times and then another eternity until our eyes met for the first time.
It was a unique magic moment that I will never forget. I fell in love at first sight, even if I already loved him. Thank you for existing, Sean!
