Thanks so much for all your well wishes!
I was beside myself on Tuesday night but I quickly read all your replies before I went into hospital and they meant so much
Well, the induction went a bit wrong in the end and after 2 vaginal births, I ended up with a pretty scary emergency c-section
BUT my gorgeous boy James Alexander arrived safely on Wednesday 21-11-12 at 12.12pm weighing a tiny 7lb 12oz (my other two were bigger).
Such a beautiful addition to the family, I can't stop staring at him
Such a shock to have to recover for 6 weeks, I bounced back really quick with my second and was just expecting it to be the same. Give me a vaginal birth any day! No driving, pain, lost loads blood so am very anaemic and my little girl doesn't understand why I can't lift her Think it was just such a shock and had never even considered it as a possibility this time.
But I am being well looked after by my husband and family and every day I am a day stronger.
Thanks again girls xxx

yayyyy huge congrats and a lovely name
Don't worry too much about the section I had a crash section with my first and was very very ill at first afterwards (both lungs collapsed, severe blood loss, lack of oxygen in blood etc etc) however I did recover very very quickly, it certainly didn't take 6 weeks to be back to normal. xxxx

Congratulations on your little boy So sorry you ended up with a section after normal births I had the same after 4 natural births and it came as a huge shock (mentally and physically ) look after yourself and don't over do it and you'll feel a bit better each day some insurers let you drive before 6 weeks , as long as you can do an emergency stop Makes things so much easier I found xx
