Lindsey, from Newcastle Family Life, has shared with us her birth story for her second baby. Apparently it was an awful pregnancy! I find it so strange that some pregnancies are fine and other are just the pits. I have heard (in fact told “you’ll know this of course what with all your research” – er, no.) that an awful pregnancy, with the predominant awfulness being sickness, is down to the baby having a different blood group to the mother…I’ve not checked but if that’s true, there’s not a lot we can do about it. The next awful pregnancy could be any of us! But it’s all worth it in the end and soon forgotten, right?! If Lindsey is anything to go by, it definitely is.
