quick birth story before baby wakes up
sunday morning i woke up to quite abit of greenish funny coloured discharge after trying to sweep myself the night before so i decided to go get checked out at the hospital because i thought id given myself an infection. thankfully the midwife on duty told me it looked normal to her and seen as i was there she would give me a real good sweep yay!! when she had finished she told me i was already 3cm dilated and almost totally effaced so after leaving the hospital i decided to go do lots of walking and hit the sales hee hee!!
at around 9pm i had felt nothing other than a few period like pains and was feeling alittle disheartened so i decided to just give up and have a bath.....well i must of just needed to relax because after my bath at around 9.30pm i went to the toilet and after i had finished peeing something was still coming out. i rushed downstairs to tell my dp i thought my waters had gone and no shock he didnt believe me untill a pink tinged fluid started running down my legs uncontrolably haha!!
standing on a towel i rang my mum to tell her we were dropping off the boys and the hospital to tell them we were on our way and would be 30 mins. as soon as we got in the car my contactions started super strong 1 min long every 3 mins it was mad. we finally got to the hospital at 10.35pm and i was told i was only 4cm dilated so i got on the birthing ball with my gas and air and bounced around for a while and when i felt the need to push my midwife checked me and it was time to push 3 small pushes as the baby was making her own way out haha my little pink bundle was born only 3hours after my water breaking.
here are a few pics
