My Birth Story

ava mum - March 16

I had my baby girl Tuesday 21 february 2006. My EDD was feb 13 or feb 15, so she was about a week late. It all started the friday before when I lost my mucus plug, by the saturday I started having contractions, so by Sunday morning I'm thinking I must be in labour when the contractions came every 5 min and lasted 40sec..wrong!! Sunday evening we went to the hospital and they hooked me up and no more contractions, turns out they were just for practice!!... Driving back home at 3am the contractions came back, and this time I knew they were for real!! so all day Monday I laboured at home until my husband and mum convinced it was time. By the time I got to the hospital I was 3cm and fully effaced, 2 hours later 5cm by this stage I was begging for epidural, 3hours later I got the epidural and thank god because I didn't give birth for another 5-6hrs!!! In the end, with a little scare when we couldn't find the heart beat she was born by forceps and I had a second degree tear. I would do all again the exact same way without the scare.

Sounds like you'll deserve every amount of love and attention people will be giving you and your baby - what an ordeal. My labours are so very fast and furious - the last one was 45 mintues. Give me that anyday! Good on you...Bet she's gorgeous.
