it wasn't til i got pregnant that i realised i didn't know too much about my own birth... my mum died last year so i haven't had her around to talk to about my pregnancy and i miss her so very very much... but yesterday, i was looking at my baby album, and i found a whole load of information in the front of it that mum had filled in that i hadn't seen before. i now know that i was term +9 days when i was induced. i was born by caesarean at 0245 after labour failed to progress, and i weighed 5lbs 14oz - my hospital notes say that i appeared premature! mum was in hospital for 6 days afterwards - i was jaundiced and had phototherapy, and i had difficulty feeding. after 2 weeks i actually lost 2oz in weight and only started putting it on later. i do remember mum telling me that she had to wake me to feed me!! i thought it was all really interesting. does everyone else know their own birth stories?
