Hi ladies sorry its been a while just getting things sorted and have had loads of visitors. Me steve and Ethan r doing really well. Only thing with me is my thigh muscle is badly bruised inside my leg from where i had injection for petherdine and placenta. Its that painful i can hardly walk on it but its getting better and its coz the bruising hasn't come out my leg its in my muscle.

Anyway here is my birth story. On the 8th nov at ruffly 4.30pm i had a show and some mild contractions had started half hour after that. These went on through the night and were between every 8 and 5 mins apart. By 9pm they we every 5 to 3mins apart but not to painfull i could cope with it. I managed to get some sleep from 1am till 4.30am. I got woke up by quite strong contractions and i woke my OH up as they were getting quite painfull. Steve had only had an hr and a half sleep as he been working lates. We rang the delivery suite at 9am and they asked questions and my contractions we every 3 to 5mins at this point. We requested a birthing pool and i managed to stay at home until midday but by then the pain was alot more intense.We rang delivery again they said to come up. They thought i would be about 2-3cms but when examined i was only 1cm! They prepared me with painkillers and told me about hot baths and were going to send me home again. When the 2nd midwife asked about my blood pressure i said the 1st midwife didn't say anything so thought it was fine. When the 2nd midwife checked she said i wasn't going no where as blood pressure was high. When rechecked it had gone up again!So had to stay and was given the TENS machine which was amazing and def have it again. I was reexamined at 7pm and was 2-3cms still carried on with the TENS machine and was examined again at 11pm where i was 5cm. I was then given gas and air with the TENS machine as all the way through my contractions were every 2 to 5mins. I stuck with these untill i was 8cms at 3.30am. I stuck it out another half hour then had peherdine at 4am and my waters broke at 4.30am. I was still having gas and air and the TENS machine and at 5.50 i felt the need to push. Ethan was born at 6.51am in 1 final push on the 10/11/11. Midwife had to catch him it was so unexpaceted and quick lol. I had 2nd degree tear and stitches to suit.

Was exhausted afterwards but over the moon to finally meet our gorgeous little boy.So so happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

He is a little star and really content. He sleeps 3 to 4hrs at a time and has a feed, nappy change and cuddle. Then goes straight back to sleep.

Lianne really scary i was due the day b4 u and both our babies were born the same day but Etahn was 1/2 an ounce bigger than Amelia-rose x

Congratulations to all the mummys out there... i thought i would add my birth story.

Our beautiful baby boy arrived at 40+2 weeks on the 15th November 2011 weighting 8.4lbs
I had a 4 hour labour and it happened very quick. On the 14th i went to town with my mum and done lots of walking and when i got home i started getting a back ache. I then treated myself to a nice chinese to try and get labour started but woke up on the tuesday 15th and thought another day. By the time i went down stairs and had my breakfast i started getting contractions at 9.30 about 15 minutes apart so just thought they were braxtion hicks so carried on with my morning. by 10.30 i was in mega pain and contractions were coming 5 minutes apart, also had a small show so i started to thinking "wow this is the real thing" Got to the hospital at 12.00pm as i couldnt take it any more. Felt the need to push quite soon after arriving. by 12.30pm my water broke and baby arrived at 1.32pm using gas and air. it was a wonderful experience and so rewarding Smile
Very quick labour and cant believe i got my little man Smile

Going to try and add photos and hopefully they will work Smile


Benjamin at a week old.


Benjamin and his big sister Smile

Lady in Dec birth club has Tracy via text, yesterday there was no update. Hope she's getting on well today.
Since last night I've been getting twinges and niggles and my hips feel really sore. This feels all new to me, I felt no twinges at all until the day I had Isabelle! Nothing to shout about though, just enough to make me realise I am actually going to give birth, eeek x

Congratulations avfcgal! What did she weigh? Smile

All your babies must be keeping you all busy, this topic is so quiet now!

Well I only have 2 sleeps left now to be a November mummy. We shall see. Seeing midwife tomorrow and having a sweep, eek. Didn't have any with Isabelle but am quite excited for the midwife to say if anything's going on. Off for a nice looong walk afterwards too, see if gravity helps. Very Happy Paul had two weeks off but had to go back to work today for one day because baby isn't here yet Rolling Eyes 3 rest days then back to work again if still no sign! My mum's been here since Saturday - is def keeping us all well fed! She's currently napping on the sofa haha.

Take care all. x
