Those midwives lie, you know - when they say "Just one more push" it's not true. But you want to believe them so much, that you do it anyway. Nothing has compared to that. Then they ask "Can you get up & walk to the shower?" afterwards. Ha! Get up? I couldn't even sit up, much less hold the baby...

Thank you for sharing and only grateful you are still here with us.There is an old motto "Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger". I could nearly have t-shirts printed!

I wish I could say I'd taken part in the Tour de France, or something equally amazing.

Took a short cut along a monsoon drain, only to find the sides were too high and steep for us to get out. Had to retrace our steps - rapidly running out of time - finish uphill for three miles. Only just made it, but managed to make it to the beer tent. Had to endure several bottles of San Mig before I felt better!!!

(Incidentally, my accident happened in January at nighttime. Fortunately, I was warmly dressed. Fortunately, it didn't happen a day later when the snow came. Fortunately, I am still here to tell the tale ;o) Fri 25 Jun 2010 12:09:55 GMT+1 Stewart_M http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/06/physical_endurance.shtml?page=28#comment4 Big Sis, how can I beat that? I did a 70 plus mile cycle ride for charity when I were a youngster. Not quite Tour de France, it was more tour de north Northumberland. Mr Nutt I try and avoid the cold!

I still regard it as the time I was given a second chance! :o) Fri 25 Jun 2010 09:58:56 GMT+1 Big Sister http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/06/physical_endurance.shtml?page=7#comment1 Probably, for me, it was when I was in a major car accident, which I was lucky to survive. I was trapped in the car, just off a motorway, for two hours, one of which was spent while the emergency services struggled to free me from my car (my leg was trapped underneath it when the door flew open on impact). The endurance was to do with the immense pain from my fractured femur, as they couldn't administer painkillers. Once released, there was the journey in the ambulance, the fractured bone hurting excrutiatingly with the motion of the vehicle. When I arrived at the hospital, the medical staff apologised that they would have to cut through the boots and trousers I was wearing - I almost laughed. When I think back to that time and the many weeks of terrible pain, I know that was the time in my life when physically I had to endure a great deal. But, as I told the doctors as they cut off my clothing, I had survived what would have been a fatal accident had I not been wearing a seat belt.
