Both me and Alan my fiancé were watching an episode of 24, we went downstairs and I needed the loo, as I was on my way to the loo I had a bit of period pain and this continued after I had been to the toilet and I kept getting this pain regular although it kept coming and going and when the pain started getting stronger were coming every 2 minutes I realised I was in labour and so did everyone around me.
I kept calm and remembered my breathing exercises and I called the midwife who suggested I call the hospital which I did and they said that as soon as my contractions were every 2 minutes and lasting about 60 seconds then go into hospital although they couldn’t send an ambulance as it wasn’t classed as an emergency.
I left for the hospital at 18.15, my brothers friends dad drove me and my partner to the hospital and then went back to pick up my mum, dad and brother.
On the way to the hospital I was thinking I really want this baby to come out now and I want this pain to go away. We arrived at the hospital about 18.25.
The first thing I remember about arriving at the hospital is the reception staff saying you got here quick.
Alan - my fiancé was with me.
My most vivid memory is when my mum and partner told me the baby is a girl as I had a feeling it was a boy.
Alan and my mum were in the room with me.
My mum started crying when Aimee was born and Alan was filling up with tears too.
I remember them both equally as they were both brilliant as was the midwife.
It was a whole lot more painful than I thought it would be but I coped better than I thought I would.
I was shocked when I found out the baby’s sex as I was convinced it was a boy but also happy as can be with the thought of having a gorgeous baby girl.
Baby was given to me after the placenta was delivered.
My mum cut the umbilical cord.
I didn’t breastfeed straight away as I had to have stitches and by the time all that was done and after I had a shower it was too late as Aimee was asleep but I fed her in the morning, it was a little difficult at first but is going well now.
The first thing I thought about my baby was she is gorgeous.
The first thing I said to my partner was well we did it and he replied no you did it and I’m so proud of you.
The first thing my partner said to the baby is hello gorgeous.
From start to finish my labour was 6 ˝ hours without pain relief and I had stitches in 2 places.
Baby’s Name is Aimee Louise, born 26th February 2006 at 23.03 weighing 8lb 12oz and she was 9 days late.
Alan made the first phone calls, they were all really happy for us, Aimee’s first visitor was my dad and my brother.
We brought baby home the following day, Alan drove, the weather was cold but baby was well wrapped up in a vest, and sleep suit with a lovely shawl that my mums friend made for us.
