Since we only have about 15 posts remaining I thought I'd make up the new one.

Lots of babies have arrived already but still plenty of us pregnant too. Here's to our June 2016 babies smile

Mild contractions here so have taken paracetamol and will try to get some sleep. A least it looks like i will avoid an induction!

Eeeeeeee how exciting torfhinn! I'm so incredibly jealous!

iamdivergent Sat 28-May-16 22:40:13

No bother.

Good luck Torfhinn that sounds promising. Baby has been very active tonight, he's been pushing out everyway possible and just generally rumbling around.

Baby girl born at 9:38pm at 38+4 after 4 hour quick, intense labour!

Successful VBAC, gas and air and one shot of pethedine (which was bloody brilliant!)

Needed ventouse and a small epi at the end as my contractions went shit and she had the cord around her neck.

All happy snuggled in bed feeding now - she latched on almost immediately and has been planted on eversince!

I've been a lurker and would like to now announce the early arrival of James (6lb 7oz) and share my story for anyone worried about labour. He was due on 4th June but decided to make an appearance on 26th May.

I had a show in the morning but thought nothing of it. At about 7pm I had another. I had a quick birth last time but despite the fact I had no pain and no breakage of waters, my family insisted I left for the hospital "just in case".

Me being me I decided to tidy up first. At about 8.15pm we left. We arrived at 8.45 and a cross receptionist told us to sit in the waiting room. I had a bit of period ache (I say ache because it really wasn't pain).

My hubby (unbeknown to me) was timing my moments of "ooh my back aches a tad" and when I rubbed my tummy. At just gone 9 he announced I was doing it every 2 and a half minutes.

They begrudgingly took me through to a room and went (fair enough as I was still not in pain).

At 9.30 a midwife examined me purely because I said I needed a poo. (A clue I needed to push she later said) I was fully dilated! They broke my waters and 24 minutes later he popped out! He had the cord round his neck but was fine. I had no pain relief whatsoever and I genuinely didn't need it.

I hope it doesnt read like I'm boasting. I'm genuinely sharing this for anyone who is worried about labour. Yes you will hear horror stories but you will also hear ones like mine.

Further reassurance, my first child was a breech birth. I delivered her vaginally and with no pain relief in about an hour and a half. I honestly found that a breeze too.

Anyway, I wish you all the best with your babies :-)

libertygirl Sun 29-May-16 07:02:50

I also forgot to pass on my congratulations! :-) Sorry.

earlgreydrinker Sun 29-May-16 07:28:03

Congratulations mrs and liberty flowers

I went in for monitoring last night because the baby had been unusually quiet. I was a bit a lot worried and they gave me a bit of a lecture on the phone about definitely going in (even though it was 11pm) but when I got there they were lovely. First monitoring baby was v quiet. Then I had a scan and he woke up. Fine after that. Didn't get home till 2am. Going back in this morning for a follow up.
So just to say if you are in any doubt contact your midwife and go and get checked x

libertygirl Sun 29-May-16 07:29:30

I'm glad to read all was okay. :-)
