ok so i woke up sunday morning at 4am, my waters had broken so i rang my mum rang the hospital and got there about an hour later.........my contractions started at about 4.30am and started at 5mins apart lasting about 30 seconds.......my waters were still leaking the whole way to the hospital and when i got there i went to the loo and some more of my waters broke everyehere! i had alot of water lol! well anyway they checked me at about 7am and i was only 1cm dialted! and was still having contractions between 5-3mins lasting about 40-50 secs they decided they wanted to induce me using a gel that they put on your cervix as my waters had broken which increased the risk of me pa__sing on group B strep the longer she was in there for....so they done that and then the contractions started coming more quik and painful.about 2-3mins apart lasting about a miniute at about 1pm i decided i needed some gas and air...she said they dont this until 3cm so she checked me after i begged her to because of the pain! i was 4cm so they moved me to another room with a birthing ball ect and hooked me up to the gas and air! (it so helped so much!) well another few hours af contraction lasting 1min and 3mins apart they checked me! it was about 5pm and i was 8cm! she didnt think sjhe was feeling the head so i had to have an emergency scan which confirmed it was her head...the doctor then examined me about 5.30pm and i was 9cm!! about 15mins later they told me i needed to push! i really didnt feel the need to but tried anyway! by this point i was to busy concentrating and didnt have the gas and air! that was really uncomfortable i couldnt sit still lol! i was trying to push for about an hour with no progress! but when i think about it i really didnt have the urge to push! but the midwife was being really firm with me and telling me had to push and i was messing around!! (she got a little bit of abuse after that lol) finally i had to have my legs in styrips.....thats when i starting having the urge to push!! and half an hour later Heidi was born!! i have a 1st degree tear that didnt need st_tches! im glad i manegd to do all of it with just gas and air!! its such an unreal sensation pushing your child in to the world and feeling every bit of her entering the world!! im b___st feeding she latches on easy and she,s wonderful and such a good baby!

Congrats on the angel, and on the pretty simple labor!!! I mean no labor is simple but heck you pushed out an almost 8 pound baby and didn't need st_tches. God, my son was less than 6 pounds and I had to get st_tches!!!!! CONGRATS!!!
