Baby grace born 26/09/13 at 11.29am weighing 7 pounds 12

Well all those braxton hicks, niggles and pains paid as baby Grace was born Thursday Morning 29/9/2013 weighing 7 pounds 12 oz. I had been in agony with pre labour pains for about 2 days, had lost my bloody show wednesday morning and was admitted to hospital wednesday night about 11pm with really painful regular contractions. Sadly i was only 1cm dilated but got admitted because i was in so much pain. Managed to get to 5cm dilated with only 2 codine as pain relief. Active labour began at about 5am, and my partner and mum were phoned to come up to hospital. I planned to have a water birth and managed to stay in the pool untill I needed to start pushing (baby pooed inside of me so couldn't deliver in pool), midwife couldn't find baby heart rate and told me I needed to get her out ASAP or would need a section. Managed to push her out at 9 and 1/2cm dilated in 15 minutes with no pain relief at all. (had gas an air earlier for contractions but had no pain relief during pushing stage). Got to say its the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but the best because my daughter is here safe an healthy and gorgeous :) Meet Baby Grace Gallagher
