After six long years of struggling to have a baby, we knew we wanted to remember every special moment of that day. I had heard that birth rarely goes the way you think it will and due to complications, I not only needed a c-section, but I was also sedated during the birth that I had so longed to experience naturally. I woke up with no recollection of anything but going into the operating room and feeling pain as my epidural for the c-section failed. I will be forever grateful to Rebecca for documenting a moment that I would’ve given just about anything to be conscious for. Thanks to her wonderful pictures and videos, I was able to see the birth of my son as well as hear his first cries. That is something that I will be truly grateful for forever!
What is most important to you that I capture? Our faces as soon as we see him for the first time. We have waited 6 VERY long years for this moment, it is something that I want to be able to look back on for years to come.
What thoughts or feelings have come up during this pregnancy? Chris is a lot more relaxed that everything will be fine. I am more cautious. After 3 miscarriages, I am just trying to take it one day at a time and hope for the best. It’s in God’s hands, not mine, but I can’t help but guard my heart after the journey that we were on. We’ve never made it this far, or anywhere close for that matter, and everything is looking great, so hopefully I will be able to relax soon. I think I will feel a lot better once I can feel him moving around in there 🙂
What are you most looking forward to about the arrival of your new baby? Oh my goodness, I haven’t even let myself think about this. Just reading it made me tear up thinking that this really may finally happen for us! I just want to hold him and know that he is ok. I want to see Chris’s face when he is born as well as the look on his face when he holds him for the first time. That is a memory that I can’t wait to have.
