Something even more stupendous has happened though, the unasked question I’ve had wriggling around in my brain for the last 30 weeks has been answered. Big family meal yesterday and Son and DIL arrived first, complete with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me, DIL was in need of an antenatal check-up so I went through all the ‘routine’ and as usual asked if there were any questions. There were, what did I think of TENs machines, off I went into my little chat about ‘anything’s worth a try’. Practice putting it on and how the controls work before you’re in labour, make sure that you start using it as soon as you think you may be in labour as it works by ‘tricking’ the brain and reducing the recognition of pain from contractions, it’s called the Gate theory etc. Out came my demonstration pelvis and off I went showing the reason that lying down restricts the possibilities for the joints within the pelvis to move and so allow for an increase of the internal dimensions. Have you thought of using water to help with pain-relief? I was on a roll, then DIL stopped me in my tracks, ‘ You will be there won’t you?’. After checking that they were really asking me to be with them when their first baby, and my 6th grandchild, was born I jumped-up, hugged them both, and burst into tears, so did DIL. I know that I was happy, and I think that my happiness was making her happy. Now all I’ve got to do is discuss it with the powers that be, that will be fun – not.
