First baby girl in 102 years
My partner and I had been together for a few months and we wanted to have a baby. I kept getting my period each month and it was really disappointing. I then found out that my partner’s brother and his wife were expecting their second child, which only made me feel worse because we were not expecting. I was focusing on sadness and disappointment, so of course I just kept attracting more of the same. My partner’s brother and his wife already had a two year old son and it turned out that they were expecting another little boy. My partner himself is one of five boys and there had not been a girl born into that family in 102 years!! I wanted my partner and I to have a baby daughter.
I began a “scrapbook” where I would script exactly what I wanted. I wrote in detail all about the pregnancy I wanted, the birth, and the baby daughter I wanted. I wrote as though these things had already happened. I also cut up magazines and pasted in pictures of babies/baby things. Each day I added to my scrapbook and wrote about different things to do with the pregnancy, to keep it alive and interesting. I paid attention to my feelings and made sure that I lived each day feeling joyful and thankful as though I were already pregnant with our daughter. I visualized constantly and just stayed happy as though we were already expecting. I kept my focus off “not being pregnant” and off feelings of sadness.
The funny thing was that after a little while, I stopped feeling as though I was “trying” to become pregnant and I didn’t feel as though I “needed” a baby anymore because I felt as though we already had one!! So I just lived my life joyfully and normally.
Just eight weeks later, I noticed that I’d not had my period and I’d started feeling really sick in the stomach, so I went to the chemist and bought one of those home pregnancy tests. Sure enough, it came up positive!! We were thrilled and absolutely over the moon!
At the eighteen week scan, it was revealed that we were expecting a girl!!!! I was absolutely overjoyed, but not surprised – after all, I trust the law of attraction.
My partner’s parents were so excited – their first granddaughter and the first girl in that family in 102 years!! Everything I had scripted in my “scrapbook” came true – I had a really great pregnancy that lasted 40 weeks exactly. I even got to give birth in the birthing center I wanted, which seemed really unlikely at first because it’s way out in country NSW and we currently live on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. However, it came about so that we were able to go and stay in that town for a couple of weeks before she was born and I was able to book in there.
My partner and I did a “calm birth” course that teaches self-hypnosis and it was excellent! I continued scripting the kind of labour and birth that I wanted – and it all came true!! I had affirmed that I would go into labour easily and naturally, that I would have a labour that lasted between 1-2 hours, that our daughter would be born in perfect health and that she would weigh between 7-8 pounds.
On 13 August 2010, I gave birth to Melinda Emily, and she is PERFECT!! I went into labour at exactly 40 weeks. My labour lasted one a half hours and it was the best birth ever. Melinda was born perfectly healthy and she weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces.
