...I was literally on the edge of my seat.

What experiences you had. I am amazed you all survived. I've never been through this (no kids), but it reads like something more wonderful than a journey through space.

I'm glad you all came out okay. I think we need to open a new wing in a hot place for taxi drivers who extend journeys for pregnant women. smiley - steam

I'm glad you enjoyed reading about it - both births were emotional days that I remember quite clearly. It doesn't happen the way they show in films!

I agree with what Dmitri said. I haven't been through anything similar, either, although I have two children.
I think what happened to you and your wife was appalling! I guess I can count my lucky stars that both my birth experiences were so nice and easy.

A gripping narrative indeed. What a poignant Entry... Here is a bunch of flowers for you all smiley - petunias

It is amazing that people survive these sorts of journeys indeed... Reminds me of the stories I was told of me and my sister being born. It seems a little bit has changed for the better, but there is still room for improvement... My mum was in labour for 36 hours because I got stuck part way through, and there was probably a bit of medical negligence that the midwives didn't agree to a caesarean. The outcome could have been a lot worse than it was, though, so we didn't sue or anything... My sister almost fell out when it was her turn to be born two years later, though, as I had 'paved the way' as it were...

I'm impressed how diplomatic I was in writing this, especially about how I said my wife accidentally caused my glasses to fall out when in fact she lurched at me, ripped my glasses off my face and chucked them across the room so hard not only did the lenses fall out, but the right lens cracked and has a big chip missing.smiley - rofl

Sounds like a fair exchange, I'd say, given what else was being ripped smiley - ill I liked the diplomatic way you described that, too smiley - laugh

A fair exchange? Losing my glasses was a bit inconvenient for a few hours but as I keep all my old ones as soon as I got home I was able to get a back-up. I wouldn't consider that an equal exchange by any means - I definitely didn't go through anything near what my wife experienced. Still, I tell that though she's spent 18 months pregnant and gone through childbirth twice, chances are she'll have a decade's longer life than I will, so I think she comes out on top.smiley - winkeye

And we got ourselves a daughter and it was her nativity play today.smiley - reindeer
