PHOTO DIARY- BABY NUMBER 3

It's only taken me 12 months to find my birth photos. 

I have had so many messages from people asking my birth story and what it's like having three kids. 

Well guys. 

The jump from 2 -3 is next level.

I don't want to bore you with the nitty-gritty, all of my births have been caesareans - and this third one was the easiest by far! 

All I can say really is that the room was calm and full of love as we all cracked jokes to each other throughout the surgery, it does help when your Obstetrician has been in your life for seven years, has birthed all three of your babies and is the "best in the business". Alongside him was our amazing Pediatrician who has also been there for all three of my babies including me when, I was born. 

Thank you Dr Brendon Steele and Dr Chris Pappas.... oh and my husband as it takes a village not just to raise a baby, but to bring a baby into the world.

So here is my photo diary of when my 2 kids became 3

I felt fine in recovery... but instead of being in recovery for 30 mins - 1 hr like most people. I was in there for 4 hours as my blood pressure and heart rate were crazy low they couldn't believe I was conscious. I went through 3 bags of saline (NaCI) in that time.
