My birth Story

Recommended Posts

Guest Eccles
Well my 1st pregnancy I ended up a beached whale literally. I was huge and I had fluid so bad that I could not bend any of my joints easily because it was so tight. This besides it was pretty easy until 6 weeks before my due date my baby tried to come early. They gave me a needle and some steroids to ensure the lung development and then it stopped...kind of.... Every week for the next four weeks i would end up at the hospital in labour and all systems would be go and then it would stop. This would occur at 2 -3 in the morning. The last time it happened the Dr said you will be holding your baby by tonight. Huh Not me. i went home and he said if it happens again I would definately be taking a baby home as this was too stressful for everybody. For the last two weeks I had been 3-4cm dilated and as you can imagine I was very uncomfortable with the sensation that the baby was going to fall out. I couldn't sit comfortably because of the position!!! Any way two weeks before my due date. I woke up and had more labour pains. Now here is the funny bit every other time it had happened everyone was really alert and would jump up and off we would go..not this time. DH told me can it wait till morning get back into bed!
I said no it can't and anyway he dragged himself out of bed and I went to wake my mum well that was even harder she just wouldn't wake up, but i got there finally. 3 hours later I was holding my baby girl who was very bruised and needed oxygen but was still the most beautiful thing I had seen. original.gif

The second DD came even easier I had nothing up until my due date woke up with twinges at 6am. Sent DH to work and called him home 2 hours later. Still nothing major but was uncomfortable. Went to the hospital who said I was 5cm dilated and had beter stay in although the pain was still nothing major. Everything slowed down after that and a check at 11.20am showed I was still 5cm so they broke my waters to hurry things up a little. Well the contractions hurt alot and I asked for an epidural at 11.45am. They checked me and said too late and push. at midday my second daughter was born. It was a little quicker than any one had anticipated. But after only a 6 hour labour with real pain only for the last 3/4 of an hour who was I to complain?
I am now pregnant again and wondering what the fates have in store for me this time. I can only hope that have the success that I did with my daughters and have another healthy baby.

I am always amazed to hear how different labours to the same woman can be. Congratulations on a lucky run so far and I'm sure the fates will bring you more good fortune with your upcoming birth.
