hello all!

that was my first and last post about contractions, Lara was born at 2h30 am last tuesday . after i posted, the contractions got so bad that i had to lay down, and not long after i headed to the hospital.

our midwife was just excellent, helped us so much all the way through. i was in natural labour until Lara moved around in a way that crushed her umbilical chord and for few minutes her heartbeat went really low. i was fully effaced by then but still only 4 cm dialated. because she is a big baby (4kg/9lb), the midwife had warned me that the contractions would last longer until i was fully dialated and able to deliver. we all decided was better to go for a cesarian than to take our chances with another cardiac stress.

it was the most beautiful thing in my life to hear Lara crying as soon as she was out of me! i havent being apart from her since then, my husband and i are so so so happy!

wishing luck to all mumsnetter out there! thank you all that answered my questions during my pregnancy, specially lulumama
