I'm not having any contractions of any significance but it's a start!

I'm having my third baby, already got a 4yo and an 18mo, both labours were very different and my DS was 8lb, DD was 6lb 8, 11 and 14 days early respectively. This one is a day late so who knows what this one will do / be like!

Ooh how exciting, get on your ball if you have one or go for a walk.

We're actually just relaxing at the mo. The midwives have not long been sent home from another home birth so the more sleep they get the better for me so I'm in no rush to get things going. Just dozing on the sofa, contractions between 8 and 10mins apart.

Be aware that things can get moving mych quicker after several births. I went from 1cm dilated to birth in under half an hour. Good luck!!

Try and pack in some sleep. Where are LOs?

As soon as I realised my waters had definitely gone we rang the grandparents to warn them DP would be round with the DC in 5mind, he was back within 10 so hopefully they're both asleep already.

Thanks ladies and Hi Thorny! smile

Still every 8-10mins but getting stronger. Difficult to know when to call again as never got closer than 7mins with DD and she popped out in one push.

We are over the moon to announce that our beautiful baby girl Kiera Isobelle was born at home in the pool at 6:03 this morning weighing a whopping 9lb 1. Despite exhaustion we are all very well. Xx
