this is a bit of a rumbled, quick birth story, ill copy and paste from ukmummies board

Quote:
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.

he weighed 9lbs 1oz head circumfrance 36.5cm born 41wks exactly
my fave pic, daddy cutting cord.:
