I had a very surreal experience today. I was lying in a small room watching what should have been the most exciting ‘tv show’ of my life and what was I doing? Biting the inside of my cheek in order to stay awake.
It’s not that seeing our baby for the first time wasn’t absolutely thrilling, it was! We got to see the heart beating, the bladder, spine, brain, face arms, etc… It was so incredible to have ‘x-ray vision’ for those few minutes.
But the room was very warm. There were a few machines emitting a gentle hum. It was dark and I was lying on a semi comfortable table with a nice pillow. All the right factors were in place for a nice little nap. Fortunately, I was able to stay awake!
