I Got to See My Granddaughter Being Born.
I wasn't planning on being in the room to see my granddaughter being born. My son-in-law came to the waiting area and told me my daughter wanted me in her room. I went right away. I figured I would be there just until she was ready to give birth. My daughter was almost there. I thought why is she still in her room, I didn't know that things had changed that much since I had my daughter, that the women give birth in their own hospital rooms. The baby was almost ready, so I told my daughter I would leave now. Her nurse said," you don't have to leave, you can stay if you want." I thought, well my daughter asked me to be here with her and her husband so I guess I'll stay. I was a little scared of seeing what I was going to see. I had c-sections with both of my children. I had no labor with either child. I sat in a rocking chair in the corner of the room, looking straight at my daughter. I could see my future granddaughters head coming. My daughter let out a blood curdling scream and out she came. I noticed right away that my granddaughters eyes were already opened and looking around. Within a few minutes, I was holding my beautiful grandbaby. I had a very pleasant flashback of when I first held my daughter. I remember how warm she was and how light pink her skin was, just like my little granddaughter. I had never seen (in real life) a baby being born and for it to be my granddaughter was even more special. I remember on the way home that night I wasn't talking very much. I heard my husband ask me, "Well how was it to see our granddaughter being born." I heard him ask me but I was so in awe of what I had experienced earlier, I was in my own world, lol. I don't know how many minutes passed before I finally answered my husbands question. I realized that I hadn't answered him, so I said, "It was beautiful!" Thats all I could say, "It was beautiful and so special!" That was six years ago but that memory will never be forgotten. I love being a grandma.
