7 years ago today.

I was 36 weeks pregnant and ready to pop. At 4ft 10 I genuinely did struggle to carry Billy and then Isla because they were huge!

I thought I had been big with Billy, I was even bigger with Isla and I was starting to think ahead to the birth and wondered how I’d get this big baby out!

The midwife told me that a Shetland pony wouldn’t mate with a stallion and carry a fouls it couldn’t manage- I wasn’t keen on being referred to as a Shetland pony though I’m sure John enjoyed being referred to as a stallion!

I thought I was a week or two off giving birth here but I had to wait another 6 weeks to hold our precious daughter in my arms.

Those were the happiest times of my life, I love reminiscing to back then.
