my labour anyone similar Rss

it all started the night of our 8yr anniversary 14/09/05. my water broke that night.i didn't do anything about it until the next day.i rang my mum and said it was time. she was there in no time. here i was sitting on the chair with a cuppa. mum was running around like a chook with her head cut off. i had byrons bag packed but my bag was not ready. anyway i got my bag ready. we set off for our journey first stop was the beaudesert hospital. i went in and asked if they could see if my water had broke [we had to go to the logan hospital cause beaudesert had shut its maternity ward down years earlier] but they wouldn't help me. anyways we left to drive about 1hr to logan. i was hungry so we stopped a maccas for brekky than we left for the hospital we got to the hospital about 11am. they were keeping a close eye on me as it was my first baby. i was getting contractions but i was not feeling them my mum was i was so busy laughing at mum i forgot to breath and they gave me oxygen. than the midwife had a look and i was only 4cm dialated and than she noticed that byron was not getting enough oxygen so we all decided that i have to have a emergency c section at 4.04pm byron was born on my best friends birthday. it was the most amazing thing to see byron after 9mths he has big blue eyes and looked a split image of my dad that was scary. i'd love to hear from parents that had a similar birth........
