Congratulations to clarella! Last graduate. It sounds like a fairly intense delivery so I hope that you and George make a speedy recovery.

Congratulations Clarella. Look after your tummy for the next few days - the less you do the faster you heal so just potter around the ward.

pikz Mon 10-Dec-12 20:47:08

Huge congrats Clarella xxx

Bryzoan Mon 10-Dec-12 20:45:24

Huge congratulations Clarella! How funny that labour started on your way in! It sounds tough going for a while - very glad to hear all is well now. Hope the little man bulks up quickly and you recover equally quickly from your section. Love the name George. Gregory might have been a George if he didn't have a cousin called Georgina.

George Cosmo born at 16:07 by emergency section - but guess what! started going into labour on way to hospital!

However the trace showed he wasn't too happy after some of the contractions so they broke waters and labour really kicked in, then they decided to see if drip sped things up - it was 50/50 for an hour over normal or sect (during which time I had a ball with gas and air and actually chose epidural cos I was so hammered, though the anesthetist really cracked me up and I had to hide my eyes while he gave the speil) but then it had to be section. He's gorgeous though - oddly skinny so needs top up feeds for a few days here but great on the boob and bottle!

clarella - best of luck

Bryzoan Mon 10-Dec-12 08:19:46

I was in two minds, just like you. But I had pretty much settled on going ahead on the Tuesday (the day after he was born)

Bryzoan Mon 10-Dec-12 08:17:39

Good luck today Clarella!

TooManyDicksOnTheDancefloor Mon 10-Dec-12 07:59:26

Good luck clarella!

Congratulations mummytobe, sounds like you had a difficult time though. I hope you're not feeling too bad about it. Thr midwife sounds like an idiot sad. Lovely name, can't wait to see a pic on Facebook.

NervousAt20 Mon 10-Dec-12 06:11:12

Congratulations mummytobe I'm sorry you had a awful bitchMW

How you doing clarella

Wow the last thread shock we've all come so far

Clarella Mon 10-Dec-12 06:10:42

Thanks everyone for the wishes!

Clarella Mon 10-Dec-12 06:10:03

Thanks bryzoan - well he's not turned up and niggles appear to be wind blush!

Out of interest were you prepared to carry on waiting?

I'll see what they say but inclined to to ahead -its also my first so could be a while anyway.

ChunkyTurkeywiththetrimmings Mon 10-Dec-12 04:47:59

Congrats mummytobe although shame things were made so difficult for you. I have separated stomach muscles from this pg - apparently 1/3 of women get it with their first and its more common with your 2nd pg/twins etc. The vast majority of women find it resolves by 6-12wks post-partum. Gentle exercises & not straining your muscles (I.e. no heavy lifting) help. Your MW might have a factsheet on it.

Good luck for tomorrow Clarella.

Congrats mummytobe
Fingers crossed it won't be long clarella

pikz Mon 10-Dec-12 02:29:39

It's doing the same to me stunt
