my birth story...
well i went to the doctors on wednesday for routine check up, as soon as i entered her room she started speaking of induction, which i wasnt keen for..i then said i wanted it proved that i need induction, so was sent for various scans, results showed small growth and placenta working to hard. advice for induction asap, i said no and i came home to think what i wanted, wrote on mumsnet..and made a decision that il go with it..went back to hospital to be sent back home at 2am..and return at 8 am. i returned was talked through induction and had a 24 hour gel put in... i walked, bounced, rested, pottered around nothing... friday 3am i woke up, bored and i though i need to bounce and walk because they are going to re-assess my condition at 11... well i bounced on the ball for 30 mins, and laid down..i started feeling a tummy ache..and thought has my labour started...
doctor came at 10 am, ctg showing irregular contraction, and i said to her i am in labour, this is what happened with dd, she didnt believe me and said my face says im not in labour ( silly moo) i said to her i dont want my waters broken, she said nothing they can do, i asked how far dilated can i be before u wont break my waters she said anything more then 4cm..so i went walking, bouncing... come 11:30 i was 4cm dilated wooohoo!
i had a brilliant midwife, who i told i wasnt keen on intervention and i wanted a natural birth...she supported me, and didnt really understand why induce me for a small baby judging by my size.
from 11:30 then she checked me, she done a sweep ( whcih was beter then having my waters broken) and then i started getting contraction every 2 mins, stronger and longer... by 1:30 i knew i was in labour, still not that painful, i threw up...and got moved to delivery suite at 2:30...while midwife preparing the room, and i was just laughing with her, dh went to get something...he left my waters broke i was in shock and laughing, midwife checked said i was only 6 cm and said my dh should return quick or he will miss birth, and which point i said he is bloody never around wen u need him! lol as he walked into the room, i had the urge to push ( 2mins later) i panicked thinking im only 6cm, midwife said breath out, i breathed and she was born! i was in shock, 3 puffs of gas and air, it didnt even kick in!!!!
the doctor was horrible, and patronising, my midwife was amazing, supportive, encouraging and gave me the best birth experience from my worse nightmare...

labour 4 hours total!
