MY Lovely DS was born Moday 27th August 8.24am at home weighing in at 8lb 5oz!

The longer version is:
Was having on off contractions since saturday eveing of 15- 20 mins and these carried on to sunday night, went to bed at 11sih as i thought they would stop, manged to get an hour or so sleep and was awoken at 2am by them. Came down and timed them and they were coming in between 4-6mins!
Got dh up a 3 and called midwife , she was here by 4am and when checked me i was 5cms dilated and in labour ( thank god i say!!) - from this point i managed to cope just on my Tens machince up intil 6.30 when i NEEDED the G&A! - second midwife turned up but things didnt get any quicker, was checked at 8.05, and 8cm didlated, waters broken at 8.10 and baby tate came into the world at 8.24!!
VEry Very painful but so worth it! Unfortantly i tore my labia really badley (20 stiches needed) and after they soughted baby out had to go to hopsital as needed " reconstrcutive" stiching, doctor did it at hospital under a local and was back home by 11.00am!
Perfect home birth (apart from trip out) and so glad that i did it! Baby has had problems latching on so bottle feeding but my beautiful son is here after lots of heartache and worry!

Thank you to everyone one on MN, this has been my lifeline in the past and will continue to be! grin
