Sorry its so late!

I called the hospital at 6am on the morning of November 5th to check if they had room for me as I was due to be induced if there was. They said to come in at 8 or 9am.. Can't remember exactly.
We drove to my parents to drop Owen off and as we were driving up their road I started gettig contractions.
We got to the hospital and they left me in a room until 11:30. They check me and I was 3cm so they broke my waters for me. Contractions got very strong after that.
I tried walking around but just couldn't.
We went down to the delivery suite about 3pm and I was 5 or 6cm.
I dont really remember much else, Tom said I was silent the whole time, just breathing through contractions.

At 6:03pm my little girl was born.
I felt awful and couldn't hold her. I was shaking really bad. I got to hold her and half hour or so later.
We both said she was definitely smaller than Owen but at 8lb 6oz she was 2oz bigger!

I need a few stitches and she was born with her hand on her cheek.
