ill tell you all of the birth story of Chelsea that i remember, and what iv been told hehe gotta love the drugs. Also sorry if its long. And for the record i did nothing to induce her either. I was gona book an induction on tues as the doctor asked that i try and wait till then and if she hadnt arrived by then well he'll induce me sometime after that.
I got my first contraction at 6:27pm wednesday night and they kept coming every twenty mintues for several hours. To begin with we thought that it was another false labour so we left it but cos they kept happening and i was occasionally having minor ones in between we wrote them down just in case. We ended up going over to my SILs for a while and by the time we left at 8 30ish they where about every 10 mintues. We rang the hospital and they said to stay at home as they didnt know whether i was in labour or not and that if it got to much to handle then come in. So i rang mum got her over, just in case and rang Pups parents. By 10 30 we ended up going to the hospital as my contractions where every minute and lasting 40 seconds.
I still hadnt had a show nor had i lost my plug or waters break.
At 12.20 i made them give me gas and it felt so wierd. At 12.40 am the nurse comfirmed that i was in labour she did an internal and found i was 2-3cms dilated and that she could feel widgets head. The re did the internal at 2am and found i was 4-5 cms dialated. and i had a show. At 2:15 am they gave me a pethadine/maxalon mix.
My waters finally broke at 3:45 am and then i felt my fist urge to push at 3 :50 am.
From about 30 minutes after the pethadine till the urge about 20 minutes after my first urge to push i dont remember much. I know i didnt want pup to leave my side and that i had a go at him cos he was telling me to breathe through the contractions. and that i nearly broke his fingers. i do remember my waters breaking the pop and the gush is was weird. They reckoned i only screamed a few times and that they all needed ear plugs, ear muffs and a load of other stuff to block it out. They lady next door thought i was being murdered lol.
After my first urge to push they tried to take the gas off of me. Manily once i started coming around so about 4:20 am. But i didnt want them to i refused to let go of it and i got shitty cos they wanted to take it away. So they disconneccted it and left me the mouth piece.lol
THen they told me to push and i pushed Chelseas head crowned and cos it hurt i shut my legs and she popped back in. So i had to push her out again. In total it took three pushes to get her out. And she litterally popped outta there. I pushed and the midwife went to go help pull her out or what ever they do and Chelsea Flew through her hand and fell on the bed. She was born at 4:27am exactly 10 hours after my first contraction.
She weighed 5 pound 12 oz, was 44cm long, and her head circumfrence was 32 cms.
I ended up with only minor tears and grazing NO STITCHES YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People where right though i dont remember the pain as soon as she came out its like its forgotten. I know it hurt but thats it.
thats about all i can remember i dont remember loosing my clothes, but i tell you what i was that out of it. I do remember each contraction adn the song IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES BY RONAN KEATING playing in the back ground. But thats it.
