i am the proud mummy to a new ds born at 7:12am on the 24/1/07
2weeks and 1 day early was induced due to signs of pre eclampsia again.
was given pessary at 4:15pm on 23/1 started to get pains in abdomen three hours later which were were a killer and after five hours of these was hoping to be on my way, the midwife examined me and found that my cervix had no change.
was absolutley gutted all that pain for nothing so had a bath to ease pain which was amazing took almost all the pain away.
was given prostin gel at 12/1 am and pains slowed down then got really bad again so i asked for pain relief and was given a jab of pethidin and i managed to sleep for 5 hours and woke to find it was snowing.
went toilet and pains hit me from nowhere again only in the abdomen gradually got worse and worse as they do until i couldnt take it any longer and had another jab of pethidine and within ten minutes was being sick
felt like my waters had gone which turned out i was bleeding so called midwife and was examined and told i was 5 cms
so stayed on bed and was given gas and air and had about five or six contractions gas and air had really calmed me down and i then could feel the head coming down with next contraction told my dp to go and get midwife as the baby was coming now he didnt believe but got them anyway and pushed 3 times and ds was born still in waters i pushed waters out that were still intact .
that was my birth story hope i havent rambled too much.
his weight was 7lbs 1.5ozs and i think were caling him max

Congrats Mummy2Jake - are you going to have to change your name now? I'm in two minds whether to read people's birth stories from our thread. Thankyou for not making it sound too awful, just the facts. Like SHHHH I'm jealous that I was due before you and you've already got your LO to cuddle.
Take care
