There's a gorgeous photo on FB for those who have Sarah on there. He was born at 9:56am, no more details yet but it appears both mum and baby doing well. Hopefully she'll be able to come on once recovered and tell us the full story!
Thank you It says on my notes he was born at 9:56!! yet on the cot card and his wrist bands it says he was born at 10am.. i know he wasn't born at 10am because i was cuddling him on my chest at 10am cause i said to stuart "whats the time..." and it was 10 on the dot lol i know its only 4 mins difference but annoying anyway he was born at 9.56 :-p
had my sweep on the Thursday at 10am and by the evening i was having two contractions an hour, soo nothing really but questionable early labour... by 2am i was still only getting two contractions an hour, i fell asleep in between them, i thought something must be happening!
*copy and pasted the rest so i don't have to type lol*
Woke up with contractions which were coming every 4 - 5mins at 4am. Walked the house and bounced on ball a bit till 5.30am they seem more spaced out then! like every 5-6 minutes...Come 6am they were every 4minutes again so I woke Stuart, he ran me a bath and I went in there till 7am then told Stuart I think this is it as contractions were regular and painful! He text his mum to take the day off work to look after Lucas, I text my mum to tell her to come over, rang the hospital at 7.30am contractions were 3minutes apart and very painful told them i needed gas and air and that i wanted to come in, left for hospital at 8am and contractions in car went to 2min apart, got to hospital at 8.20am and contractions went back to 3-4min apart they checked me and I was 6cm dilated, they filled the tub and contractions went bak to 3min apart, I used gas and air then got in tub at 9.25am as stuart took a photo on camera which displayed the time lol and the first few contractions were fine (about 10minutes in) then suddenly they were so bad I was really moaning through them and I was constantly sucking the gas! My body started pushing and they said for first 5mins to just breathe but I couldn't stop pushing with every contraction! 15min later I was feeling intense pressure and I was having no breaks between contractions and then I felt burning and his head was crowning and he came out! Then less then 30 seconds later another contraction pushed his shoulders out. He was in his sac but I had my eyes closed so didn't see that, mum and Stuart did, the midwife broke the bag with a hook and then placed him on my chest. I had a 2nd degree tear and at first didn't need stitches but then it kept bleeding so I had about 7 stitches altogether .
They have 1hr 10mins put on my notes as active labour time. pretty much the same as lucas birth story except i was on a bed with him and not in the pool lol.
