lil-miss-saunders - November 23

Courtney Leigh was born on monday 19th November at 1:53am weighing in at 6lb 13oz!! I woke up on sunday morning at about 9am with these strange pains in my stomach ... i wasnt sure what they were but they didnt have any type of pattern to them. I carried on my day as normal, went for a bath, whilst in the bath the pains became more regular. After this the pains disappeared for a while but then came back about half an hour later. I decided to go for a long walk to see if things would progress, the pains continued all day with no particular pattern so i decided to go for another bath at about 8pm. This made the pains stronger and they also started to come roughly every 5 minutes. By 12.00 i decided it was time to go to the hospital because the pains had started to turn to my back. We arrived at about 12.30 and i was only 4cm dilated. This annoyed me because i thought i still had hours to go. They moved me to the labour room and said they would keep coming in and checking on me. She showed me how to use the gas and air but i just didnt like it. The next time i saw my midwife was when i had started pushing and my babies head was coming out because nobody had bothered to come in and check me. We had to stay in hospital for a couple of days because baby Courtney wasnt feeding properly but now at 4 days old she seems to of found her appet_te. Thanx to all of the ladies on here who have helped me through my pregnancy and good luck to all of you still waiting on your bundles of joy :) x

congratulations little miss saunders!! I am so happy for you! I an't believe no one checked you, how scary. I would have been freaked out, I was freaking out when I had the urge to push. I told my husband, go get them!! My girl wasn't hungry at first either. She just wanted to sleep, she had been in labor for a day and half too. I understand why she was tired.
