like you said, similar to what one can easily find on birthing videos.
The photo is a special one and a private moment that you chose to share with us and I think that is fine. (you did warn about the graphic nature of your post)
I think what might make it more personal is that we (sort of) know you.
I'm ok with it if you are ok. and I am relieved you said you'll remove it eventually, just to protect your privacy, ya know?
My Dh got an excellent shot during my DS' birth which I feel is just magic too. Sometimes photos can be so amazing.
me:42, DH 43
DS: born by c-sec Apr15'03, 9lbs5oz 41wks gest. (after 4 years of ttc, starting in 1998)
DD born by c-sec Oct 13 2007, 8lbs13oz 39wk gest. (after just under 3 years of ttc)
~~DS was conceived naturally the cycle following a cancelled DE IVF, using my good friend's eggs. She was on the verge of hyperstimming.
~~DD's nat conception I attribute to using OPKs like a crazy nut, eating grapefruit daily and using preseed. also 5 cycles of TCM ending 2 cycles before that lucky cycle.
