When my older sister was born she didn't have the soft spots on her head so when she was a week or two old they broke her skull front to back. That must have been really scary, but my sister was fine. When her hair grew in it grew along the crack and they called her skunky. That is how we can tell our baby pictures apart. She still has the staples in her head and she can feel them.
It took my mother a long time to get pregnant with me. The entire pregnancy, her second, I rarely kicked and she rarely felt me. Apparently she was convinced I was sick or that something was wrong.
I was born via c-section at her due date weighing 5lbs 2oz, perfectly healthy.
That must have been scary, and I wish she had been able to enjoy her pregnancy with me and births. Between the trauma of my sister's birth and her pregnancy with me, she opted not to have more bio-kids.
**What do you know about your mother's pregnancies, birth experiences?
