from antenatal classes to those all IMPORTANT zzzzs... the highs and lows of the first year of motherhood
A is for antenatal class - phew! They're nice.
B is for birth - do people really do this twice?
C is for newborn cuddles which are just amaze,
D is for the first few weeks which pass in a daze....
E is for epidural - sheer bliss.
Where is that anaesthetist for his thank you kiss?
F is for forgetting the pain, maybe I could do this again?
