"One more push Giovanna," The doctor, who was standing by Gi's feet, said. The delivery room was full of people. Gi was lying on a large hospital bed, covered in sweat. She looked absolutely exhausted but she, somehow, still managed to look beautiful. Gi looked up at me, looking scared. I smiled at her reassuringly and brushed her hair back from her face.
"You're doing so well honey," I said to Gi, encouraging her. "I'm so proud of you." I kissed her forehead quickly and gave her hand a reassuring squeeze. Gi had gone into labour ten hours ago. We'd been at home, just watching a film and cuddling with our cats, it had been nine o'clock at night and it was now 7am. It had been a bit of a shock since Gi's due date was not for another month and Gi had been absolutely terrified. I'd tried my best to be encouraging and make her feel better and it seemed to have worked, at least slightly but once the doctor's had announced that it was time for Gi to be taken to the delivery room she'd started worrying again.
"I can't do this Tom," Gi murmured, looking up at me with a terrified expression on her face, she sounded exhausted. "I don't have any energy left."
"Don't be silly," I said. "Of course you can. Only one more push and our little baby will be here, imagine how amazing that'll be." I kissed Gi's forehead again and stroked her cheek.
"And push, Giovanna." The doctor called. Gi leaned forward and squeezed my hand as she began pushing again. She squeezed her eyes closed and held her breath as she pushed as hard as she could with the little energy she had left.
"Just a couple more seconds." The doctor said, reassuring Gi. I kissed Gi's hand, that I was holding, and stroked her hair.
"You're doing so well, Gi." I said.
"Keep going," The doctor said to Gi. "There we go." Gi fell backwards, onto the bed, exhaustion taking over her. She was breathing heavily and was covered in sweat. A loud, high-pitched cry filled the air and I laughed in relief to myself. I squeezed Gi's hand and kissed her hair.
"You did it Gi." I said, grinning in relief, at her. She smiled at me and I brushed her hair off her face again.
"Congratulations," The doctor said. "You've got a very healthy little girl." I grinned at him and I laughed again, I couldn't remember being so happy. "Would you like to cut the cord?" I nodded eagerly and walked over to the doctor. I looked down and saw my daughter. She was tiny, absolutely tiny and beautiful. She was still crying and covered in blood. I could feel tears running down my cheeks as I looked to her. The doctor handed me a pair of scissor-shaped things and I carefully cut the spongy cord, not wanting to hurt the baby or Gi.
"She's beautiful Gi," I said happily. My voice was thick and tears were running down my cheeks. A nurse took our daughter in her arms and took her over to a table and started to clean her up and run a few tests on her. I walked back over to Gi and she looked at me with a worried expression on her face.
"Is she okay? What are they doing?" Gi asked worriedly. I stroked her hair and pressed a kiss to her hand.
"It's fine Gi," I said. "Don't worry, they're just cleaning her up." Gi smiled tiredly at me and I pressed a soft kiss to her lips. Gi kissed me back weakly.
"I'm so proud of you," I murmured when I pulled away. Gi smiled and turned to see the nurse approaching her bed. She was holding a tiny, blanket-wrapped bundle in her arms and she, very carefully, passed the bundle to Gi. Gi adjusted out daughter in her arms and tears began to roll down her cheeks as she looked at her. I carefully sat down on the side of the bed, next to Gi and put my arm around Gi as she cried.
"Hello baby," Gi cooed to the beautiful baby in her arms. "I've been waiting a long time to see you." Her voice was thick and she was still crying with happiness.
"She looks like you." I said quietly, staring at our baby over Gi's shoulder. Gi looked up at me and smiled weakly. She pressed a kiss to my lips and turned her attention back to our daughter.
After a couple of minutes the doctor's took Gi and the baby into the recovery ward so that they could both get some rest. While the doctor's took Gi to the new ward I went down to the waiting room to inform mine and Gi's family and friends that were anxiously waiting for news. It had been a very long day and exhaustion was starting to engulf me. I walked slowly into the waiting room, wiping my eyes as I went. Seeing our daughter had made both Gi and I cry a lot. Gi had an excuse, she'd just given birth and she was hormonal and tired but I was just insanely happy and I couldn't contain my joy. I looked over to see mine and Gi's parents, our siblings and Dougie, Danny and Harry sitting on the small plastic chairs across the room. They looked up as I came over to them and I grinned at them all.
"We've got a little girl!" I cheered as I walked up to them. They all shouted their congratulations at me at the same time meaning that I didn't know what anyone was saying exactly. I was hugged once by everyone and they were all very excited.
"How's Gi?" Kim, Gi's mum asked.
"She's fine, very tired and emotional but she did so well." I said smiling at her. Kim grinned at me.
"I'm gonna go back and make sure they're both ok," I said. "I'm not sure that there's any point in you guys staying, go home and get some rest and I'm sure that the doctor's will let Gi have some visitors later on today." They'd been here all night and they looked almost as tired as Gi had. They all nodded and I said goodbye to them all quickly before rushing to get back to Gi and our daughter.
I walked into the room, that Gi had been put in, as quietly as I could, not wanting to disturb her or the baby if they were asleep. I shut the door behind me and turned to see my wife lying in a hospital bed with my daughter in her arms, it was the most beautiful sight that I'd ever seen. Gi looked up as I entered the room and grinned at me but I could tell that she was exhausted. I smiled at her and walked over to her bed. I sat down carefully next to Gi and wrapped my arm around her again. Gi leaned against my side and rested her head on my shoulder but made sure that the baby was stable in her arms.
"Why don't you try and get some sleep honey." I said as I looked down at Gi, she was struggling to keep her eyes open. "You look exhausted." Gi nodded slightly against my shoulder, her eyes now shut.
"I'll take the baby to the nursery and then I'll be back okay?" I asked Gi as I carefully took the baby from Gi's arms. Gi nodded and opened her eyes slowly. She looked up at me and I leant down and kissed her quickly.
"I'll be back in a minute." Gi snuggled into the covers of her bed and her eyes closed immediately. I stood in the room for a minute, looking down at my daughter. It was amazing that I could love one person so much, even more than I loved Gi. The baby in my arms was squirming slightly and making adorable little noises. I smiled to myself when my daughter smiled a toothless smile at me, her little eyes looking up at me. I tickled her stomach lightly and she smiled wider, making more gurgling noises. I laughed slightly to myself and the little girl grabbed my finger, wrapping her entire hand around it. She squeezed tightly and I grinned, this was what it felt like to be a father.
