Did you enjoy your pregnancy?: For the most part. I mean for it being mainly in the summer time, it wasn’t too bad.

So I saw him for a few minutes, did skin to skin with him, then went back to surgery. I saw him at 4 in the morning, and was so exhausted. But I would do it all again in a heart beat, for us both to be here safe.
