Congratulations to everyone on their arrivals so far.

My little girl arrived in grand style on the 4th.... Well kind of. My contractions started at 2am, at around 6:30am I decided to call the hospital, I was asked to hold off for as long as possible, as my contractions were bareable I decided to go for a shower, had 2 panadol & laid down for a rest between contractions, at 7:30 they were getting strong & were 5 mins apart so I said to my partner it was time to go. I stood up.... & my waters broke. Then immediatley a gush & pressure, I ended up back on the bed. My partner called an ambulance, by the time they got to us her head was out. As scary as it was, it was an amazing experience for both of us & as much as I think about the things I could have done to change anything I always end up thinking there is nothing I would do to change any part of her birth. My bed looked like a murder scene & I didn't get to do delayed cord clamping or go to the hospital I was booked into but I laboured with no drugs, wasn't coached to push when I didn't need to & had no tears. out of all 3 of my labours this would have to be the best. And DP is a hero in everyones eyes for his part in helping to birth his first child.
