I really didnt want to go over my due date so I was trying natural ways to get things started eg walking a lot and having sex! Around 12:30am ish Saturday morning, I started to get terrible back ache and tried to help it with a hot water bottle. I tríed to go sleep because I knew that I had to conserve energy if this was it but it was impossible. It was so hard to get comfy. I got up and went to the living room to watch tv. I had back ache coming and going every 8 minutes or so. It was okay though and I decided to get in the bath to see what would happen and if I could get rid of the back pain that way. No such luck...it got worse. I was having tightening in my belly but nothing compared to the back pain which started to come every 6 mins or so. I got back in the bath and wasnt coping too well...it woke dh up. He came and we ´went back to the living room and worked through the pain with breathing. It was going fine and we were coping well. After the back pain and contractions were coming and going every 4 mins for an hour, we decided to go to the hospital. By this time it was around 7am. I hadnt slept a wink all night but felt ok at that point. At the hospital they told me my water had broke but I dont know when that had happened. I was 2 cm dilated and almost totally effaced. They had me sit down and looked at Sebi's heartbeat and timed the contractions and then asked me what I wanted to do. I asked to go in the tub. I was relaxing fine but the water made it even worse and the contractions were 2 minutes apart. I was sick in the water and got out. I decided to sit on the birthing ball. I had made it 11 hours without any pain relief and the midwives said my breathing was great. I was so happy. They decided to check the cervix again. Still 2cm which they told me and it all went downhill from there. I was coping less well because the back pain wass constant. Dh was constantly rubbing my back and he couldnt do that forever. She didnt know how long it would take and was surprised my cervix hadnt changed with such strong contractions. We talked pain relief. I was in so much pain with my back that I gave in and got an epidural. So much for my natural labour and all my feelings about epis. Hmm. But I was so drained that I didnt know what else to do. It went in well and I didnt move a bit. Talk about relief. I was able to relax after that and things got moving. In about 2 hours we were at the pushing stage. I was alone with a Hebamme at this point. After pushing for about 45 mins I thought it was going well. All of a sudden there were 4 other people in the room and I was told Sebi was distressed so they were going to cut me and suck him out Not only that I had people pushing him out from my belly at the same time. If you dont tense your stomach and go to push right. How could I knowing Sebis heartbeat was low? It BLOODY HURT. I thought I would pass out and I was screaming. They were doing it constantly. Imagine a grown man putting all his pressure on your belly and youre not prepared. Ouch. I was so worried about Sebi but they got him out and dh was wonderful trying to comfort me. They took him away and suctioned etc and I bawled my eyes out worried for him. He was screaming and that upset me. Finally I got to see my little man and it was the most wonderful moment ever. Everything else was forgotten.

Sebastiaan isaiah was born at 6:06pm weighing 3350grams and 50cm long

Congrats Charlotte on your little guy! I know you wanted an unmedicated birth and I'm sorry it didn't work out. And for the little scare at the end, But you are right,k in the end, when you're holding your little man, all is forgotten.

WOW!!! What an experience! I am so glad that you got the epidural - I cannot imagine how you could have gotten thru the end without it - YIKES!!! I know how painful it was when they pushed on my stomach after the birth to get all the crap to come out - I cannot imagine them doing that with a baby in there! Your little man is absolutely PERFECT!!!! He is so beautiful!

lol I see some babies that look a lot like him. On the wall at the hospital there were babies that had been born there and some I thought were him.
