i'm a mom!!!!

so i went to be induced on monday night, i didnt think they'd start straight away, but i got a dose of Pitocin at 10 pm. by 10.15 i was having strong pains, but i thought "theres no way it'd work so fast!" but an hour later i was having contractions 1 min apart and lasting a minute. i was in incredible pain and i was only 1cm! so they gave me an injection of pethadine and i was able to sleep for an hour. once i woke up, they were so much worse, i vomited becasue of the pain, so i was checked and only 3cm!!!!
they could do no more for me in the ward, so i had to go to the delievery room, where i tried entonox, i HATED it. got sick everywhere. i was still only 4 cm at 5 am. i had to have an epidural.

after that it was amazing. i could still feel the baby move and feel pressure down below, but no pain. my midwives, dh and i just talked and laughed the time away. i really enjoyed it. the midwives explained everything the baby was doing, and because i could feel it without the pain, it was so amazing.

so at midday on tuesday, 13hours after i was in established labour, i was fully dilated. they gave me an hour to rest before we began pushing. i could feel the pressure of contactions so i knew when to push. i pushed for 2.5 hours and the head was still not out. so they thought the baby was getting distressed, so they got the vacuum. i had to have an episiotomy and the epidural had worn off. i felt every second of it.

they put the baby up on my belly, face down. DH said something like "my beautiful daughter" the doctor laughed and turned the baby over and lifted the chord. my scan was wrong, i have a beautiful baby BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jake Steven Coleman was born at 3.50pm on tues 7/8/07 weighing 8lb 15oz.

i am completely in love!!!!!!!!! :inlove: :inlove:

OMG!!!!!!!!!! Congrats!!!! :bluecheer: You made me laugh in awe because I remember you posting that you weren't going to be buying any girls clothes until the baby was actually born!! Somehow you knew!!!!

I'm sorry you had a painful labor, but it sounds like you handled everything great!! I'm very excited for you, your husband and JACK!!!!

WOW! Congratulations!!!

I was reading your post and then I opened another window to look up that thing that made you sick (the gas) and I saw at the bottom of your post Jake is 4 days old and I'm like, WHAT?????!!!!!

That is soooo crazy! How funny though. So you had only neautral stuff? What about blankets and the bedding and such?

first_time_mom August 11th, 2007 02:15 PM

yep, only had neutral colours like lemon, mint green, white, beige...

now theres blue everywhere!!!!!

it was such a surprise, but what a good one!!!

Gorman August 12th, 2007 07:31 AM

OMG!!! I am in complete shock! I can only imagine the shock you both were in when they told you it was a boy! That is incredible. I hope you are both happy and CONGRATULATIONS - I'm am so glad he is here safely!

Take care mama!

Nikki. August 12th, 2007 08:39 PM

I saw your siggy before I read your story! I was confused for a second.

Congratulations!! :bluecheer:

Now you've got me panicking that Emma might not be a girl after all!!!! If not, he'll be awfully upset with all the pink stuff! :)

I have never had an epidural..did it hurt?[/b]
i was drifting in and out of lucidness when i was getting the epidural. i didnt know where i was or anything so tbh i have no idea if it hurt or not. all i know is that 5 mins later i was like my normal self. i could still feel him move around and i could feel the pressure of contractions, just not the pain.

my advice ladies, REFUSE EPISIOTOMIES. they hurt so bad afterwards. i'm only just starting to feel a bit normal after it.

the_elmel August 15th, 2007 09:40 PM

Oh my goodness! Congratulations. I can't believe the shock you must have experienced once the doctor told you it was a boy and not a girl. AWE!!!

I am glad everything went well. I bet you are on cloud 9 right now! :wub:
