Pregnant mummy blogger Constance Hall has shared some candid snaps from hospital as she prepares to welcome her fifth child.
Constance – who was due to undergo an elective C-section to deliver her baby boy on Monday – posted a clip to her Instagram Stories.
The clip – which had the words ‘Baby Time’ written over the top in blue lettering – appeared to show Constance being prepped for surgery on Monday afternoon.
Two hours earlier, the popular author had posted her ‘last ever baby bump photo’.
‘If this doesn’t look like he’s trying to crawl out of the bag then I don’t know what does. I gotta drag him into theatre soon,’ Constance wrote.
The day prior to her planned delivery, Constance wrote an open letter to her unborn son.
‘Dear baby in my belly. Tomorrow we get to meet you. And here’s a couple of things I want you to know,’ she wrote.
‘The minute your dad and I got together we knew you were coming, We talked about you, joked about you and even picked out some names.
‘Your dad told me he’d had a sign from the gods... I smiled, took another sip from my wine and proceeded to comb out his dreadlocks.
‘We don’t know anything about you, you might be wild and challenging of everything society throws at you like us or you might wear a suit, brush your hair and get 4 degrees.
‘You might be a tough and tumble sporty boy like your dad or an emotional artsy person like your mum.
‘Or you could always be both.. You might even decide you don’t want to be a boy. We don’t care. We just want you.
‘But what I do know is that last night your dad told me that the hardest park of this extremely painful pregnancy for him has been watching me in pain and not be able to take that pain away from me and swap it for himself.
‘And that’s what I want for you, deep meaningful connections with your friends, your siblings, us, your dog, a lover.. don’t settle until you find someone who’s hurt hurts you and who’s smile makes you laugh.
‘We don’t own our kids, you’ve just entrusted us to guide and protect you for a while. And we will do that.
‘This huge chaotic family of soon 7 kids, 2 dog and 2 madly in love parents has a place for everyone.
‘Your place for the time being is in my arms. And I simply cannot wait to sniff you tomorrow. Mum.’
