Wednesday 4th june at 9pm my contractions were coming every 5 minutes i managed to breathe through them until 11pm but they got stronger so i went in the bath by 1am i felt like i couldnt handle them and got my mum to ring the midwife but she said it sounded like early labour to take a paracetamol have a bath and some food! i just cried when she said i couldnt go in.

between then and 3am i had two baths then i woke up my DF and told him i was in labour and asked if he would sit with me while i had a bath as they were stronger and i didnt want to be left on my own.

After my bath i took some paracetamol and had something to eat and then tried to rest, i finally fell asleep at 4.30am for about an hour (god knows how!!) i did wake a few times in between contractions.

At 7.30ish am i got out of bed and the contractions came much stronger and more painful.

At around 10.30am i rang my mum to tell her i needed to go to hospital, she told me to wait until dad was home from work so that he could take us. I rang her three more times asking if he was home yet, while i just paced up and down the kitchen!!!

At 12:30pm i finally arrived at the hospital!! they put me in the room and then asked about my contractions etc they put there hand on my belly to try and feel for some but couldnt feel any!! i told them they were in my back.

They left me until 1:30pm where they asked if i would like to be checked or just wait i asked to be checked and i was a very good 7cm with bulging waters.

I then got into my gown and into the bed, they asked what pain relief i wanted i asked to try some gas and air, i took that inbetween some contractions but when the contractions got stronger (after my waters broke) it wasnt doing anything.

I think they checked me around 3;45pm where i was 9cm. I started pushing at around 4:20pm.

It was awful the pain was unbearable! i felt like i was going to explode down there, i never felt that ring of fire though when i was pushing i kept saying i couldnt do it and thats when mum told me her head was out!! i cant even remember her head coming out.

Lacey was born at 4:41pm weighing 8lbs 1oz
