hi there baby holly arrived into the world on friday 25th after being admitted into hospital on the thursday 24 with irregular contractions lasting from 5 mins to 10 mins, after being told i wasnt in established labour they kept me in overnight, the next day the pains were still irregular so they decided to break my waters with a nasty looking hook that looked like a knitting needle, after that the contractions started coming every two mins, i tried a bath which just made me feel uncomftable, the midwife kept telling me that i was doing well coping with gas and air, at that point i grabbed my dh by the neck and told me he better get me a f****** epidural, after the epidural the pain melted away as if like magic. then i felt the urge to push and with 15 mins of pushing holly was born into the world.

lol on the epidural. It is amazing how much you can put up with and then you get to that point and your done with being nice. I am a very laid back person but with both labors I hit the point where I didnt care who's feelings where hurt I needed some relief right then. I cant wait to see pictures.
