While My gorgeous lil girl is sleeping I will tell you my birth story.
I was having little niggles all day on saturday. I also had some mad urge to scrub the house from top to bottom.
Well at the night I started to get really strong contractions but I didnt wanna get my hopes up so I went to bed and tried to ignore them. Well they got stronger and stronger so at 2am I had a bath and decided too go to my mums because it was closer to my hospital.
I rang the hospital at 6.30 and they sent a midwife out to check to see if I was in labour. Well the midwife came about 10.30 and I was 4cm dialated. I was so releaved that it wasnt a false alarm.
I had a bath and something to eat and then decided to go to the hospital. When we got there at 11.30 I was roughly 6cm. I was encouraged to get in the birthing pool and I did. It was grate I was sssssoooooo relaxed.
I also had gas and air but that was it. I was so proud of myself for not having anything else.
Leah was born in the birthing pool. She was the first baby to be born in the new birthing centre at the hospital, so she was a bit of a celebraty.
I asked the midwife not to tell me wot sex she was I want to see for myself. That felt amazing.
Sorry its long but just wanted to tell you everything.
I will try to get some pics on asap.
