Well here comes my story.
I was booked in for inducement on Sunday 1st May but being 11days late was long enough for her.I had a show on thursday morning but nothing else tillearly hours saturday morning when contractions were every 10 mins, they died off around lunchtime then came back every 5 mins at about 6 pm, phoned the hospital and they said to stay at home as long as i was comfortable,phoned them back at about 8-50pm as the pains were every couple of minutes and i stared to bleed, they told us to come in straight away.We got to the hospital about 9-10pm and was examined at about 9-45 and was 8 cms dilated,started on the gas and air but then one contraction was tailing into the other so buzzed for the midwife and asked for pethedine.She asked if i was trying to push but I didnt think i was so she examined me again at 10-10pm said I was fully dilated and couldnt have any drugs.Waters hadnt broken so she broke them at 10-20pm and as she done this she told me she could see the head and told me to push, 3 pushes later she was here, couldnt believe the speed.Erin Julie born 10-23pm weighing 7lb 1oz , she is absolutely gorgous loads of dark hair and just perfect.We were discharged on Sunday at 4-30pm and glad to be home.Had a lousy night last night feeding doesnt seem to be going very well she was on the breast for 4 hrs last night but is sleeping peacefully now. .

Oh fantastic Leander, glad it was so fast. Thought if she hadn't already come, tomorrow night's match would push you over anyway

Congratulations on little Erin - can empathise about the mammoth night feeding sessions... give it time though..Alexander is 2 weeks old now and only just becoming less nocturnal!

Congratulations Leander and a big welcome to Erin. The birth sounded great. Hope the feeding settles down soon.
