The waiting room wasn't very busy, so we were only waiting for about five minutes before we were called through. I waddled into the tiny room and eased myself onto the bed, as soon as the midwife placed the scanner on my belly we could hear the heart beating strongly. I looked at Jacob with a big smile on face, and saw he was smiling too. We found out the sex of the baby, but decided to keep it between us. We said thank-you and goodbye to the midwife and left the hospital.
We stopped off at the sim'n'q on the way home to pick up all the items for the babies room, including wallpaper, paint, crib, etc. Everything that the little one would need. The room was ready to make a start, so as soon as we got home we spent the rest of the evening painting and getting things ready. We finally climbed into bed just gone 1AM, and I was knackered.
When another more intense wave of pain hit me I knew I had gone into labour, I told Jacob it was time to go to hospital. Him and dad payed for the meal while I waited with mum, when they returned we all headed to the hospital. My contractions were coming faster and stronger now, so I knew it wouldn't be long before my baby was in my arms......... .
