The birth story,starting midnight on the 30th.
So I went in at 12midnight to be induced, pessary was put in at 1am and off I went to sleep. Woke around 3am to mild cramping but managed to sleep,until 6am. At 8.30am I was checked and was 2cm doctor decided to break my waters in the hope it would start things off. Wow never wish this on anyone with a cervix as far back as mine no gas and air either... Well it didn't I went straight to labour room and managed 4/5 hours with no pain relief and linked to syntocin... Only to find I was only 3cm... To which I'd had enough and asked for an epidural. The thought of another twelve hours with the pain was terrible. And epidural was the best thing I've ever decided to do. Baby had other plans at 3pm it still was very high up a d only 5cm the heartbeat kept dipping with contractions I was oblivious as I fell asleep to woke at 4am and told I was being checked I was now 7cm the game was on. A whole hour later and baby heart rate dipping dangerously low I was checked I was 9cm but now was the time to get baby out, doctor did her best to help baby past the last bit of cervix and applied a vontuse what felt like forever pushing and being aided from my tummy baby's head arrived at 5.24 and at 5.26pm with a huge knot in his cord out came my baby boy Louis weighing 6lb 6oz so so small yet long. Absolutely perfect in everyday and me and daddy relived it was over. The doctor was so concerned about the knot they were even preparing for an emergency section but I managed to push out saftley. After the placenta arrived I could finally relax I was cleaned up and gowned up and Louis immediately breast fed. So much so he's that content I sat writing this at 3am whilst he has slept for 4 hours. He's dreaming I think he's reliving his entry into the world bless him. So there. Is my story 3rd baby awesome pregnancy yet very slow labour with no progression without the painful drug syntocin. That stuff is lethal. my outlook no pain relief was to use gas and air I was certainly swayed dealing with such immense pain and boy what a huge relief it was epidural my new best friend well for the 30th June 2013 that is.
The outcome my beautiful baby boy head full of dark hair... Obviously why I had terrible heartburn. weighing 6lb6oz head 34cm. So if there's a lesson to be learnt its don't reside yourself to using no pain relief when your hooked to syntocin because you never know how your body will cope.
Oh and hubby will defiantly get the snip noway I'm doing it again I'm done!
