Daughter1 has been admitted to hospital for an induction tomorrow morning.
This is the first time in her life that I am not by her side and I feel so restless and nervous. She has a husband now and so Mum gets to sit on the side lines, and I have to say that it is a very odd experience to have her in hospital with possible complications and not have a role to play until summoned.
I never realised until now what my own mother must have felt when my sister and I had babies, and we both had complications and she had to wait to be told what was happening. It is not in anyway a welcome role.
Hopefully it won’t be a long wait…
