Our little Harvey John was born 13th October on his due date.
Started with 32 hours of early labour, having very weak contractions, regularly, stopping overnight.
woke at 4.01am to very strong contractions, went from 17 mins apart to 8 mins in first hour. Progressed very quickly, got to hospital at 6.45am, feeling like I needed to push whilst sitting on the toilet, I sent Dh out to find a midwife, as mine had not arrived yet, Dh and midwife came back into bathroom to find me holding bubs head!! Still sitting on toilet. Harvey was born next contraction head and arm first. Born at 6.53am, 8 mins after arrival to hospital. Just under 3 hours extablised labour.
All in all, an odd experience, but so so so great to actually have a little BOY!! We are totally thrilled, and his big sisters adore him.
