That sounds horrible!
My gastro was on my due date, two days earlier I was in hospital with Devon as he got it first. All the nurses laughed at me saying I should just stay there and have bubs, and as I got gastro too, I should have stayed there! They tried to admit me for the night (as I came in around lunch time) and I started having contractions, they were like, No you aren't, and I was saying over and over YES I AM... two and a half hours later I had my little bundle in my arms. The shower afterwards was much deserved!
Oh, by the way, they definately aren't your ugly photos, you look gorgeous.
