Our new little dude has arrived Lock Rss

Rowan Joseph was born 28/02/2012 at 5.45pm weighing 9lb 5 1/2oz (4235grams), 54cms long and HC of 36cms. Labour wasn't the greatest but what labour is grin
I woke up on Tuesday morning and found it hard to get out of bed and hard to walk. Didn't get my first contractions until about an hour after I woke up. They were coming irregular but I didn't think I was really in labour as I had been getting some nasty tightenings on and off for a few days before. I called the hospital around 7.30ish as the pains were pretty nasty and becoming regular and because we live 40 mins from the hospital I didn't want to risk stuffing around and we still had to drop off our 2 DS's to my parents. We got to the hospital at about 9.30 and they did an internal and I was only 2cms and the contractions were not coming regular so the midwife told me not to drive all the way home but to go for a walk and drive and go back later when I was getting 3 contractions in 10 mins. By 2pm I'd had enough and the contractions were coming hard and 3 in 10 so back off to the hospital we went. The midwife did another internal and I was 4cms so she broke my waters at 2.30pm. I had gas and morphine for the pain and by 5.45pm Rowan entered the world. His shoulders got stuck also but I didn't tear or graze which was great. He is a great baby and pretty much drinks, poos, wees and sleeps grin
Both DS's love him to bits. grin
