Hey theNatty, I might be the only one still up, fancy an online birthing partner??!!

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 02:58:44

Actually, for one glorious moment I thought we were going to have a Kerry Katona stylee live webcam feed...a first for MN! But this is a pretty good first too....

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 02:59:56

oh yes please!

contractions fairly strong and regular, not screaming yet tho

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:02:47

Are you at home? Whose with you? Is this your first?

<<refers to long list of questions in hand>>

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 03:03:56

at home. this is my third.
got hubby with me!

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:04:38

<<boils kettle, looks for clean towels>>

how far apart are the contractions?

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:05:55

Ooh this is so exciting!

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 03:08:40

about 2 mins apart.

my labours are always like this, instead of strong contractions that get closer together, i have close together contractions thats get worse and worse.

strange but thats me!

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:10:52

When I had ds I was induced, so it went from me nipping out to the shop to get some mints, to end stage contractions every two minutes for four hours....aaadffhhh. So I sort of know what its like.

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:12:02

have the midwives arrived? do we have an ETA on TheTinyNatty?

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 03:14:02

well am timing them using an online thingy they are about 2 mins apart and around 35 secs long.
so not toooo bad yet

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 03:15:11

no they are sending one out aparently lol
no idea but last labour was 5 hours from aboutt his level of pain. so maybe 7 or 8am?

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:15:25

I screamed at exp when he got between me and sight of the clock...the only thing that got me through them...

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:21:15

still here....

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 03:27:00

i hate this bit, its takes ages to get it going fully.. wanted to have the baby before the kids woke up really..

come on baby!

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:27:05

though I have a sneaking suspicion that you are going to be a bit too busy to MNet before too long...

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:30:23

Does baby have a name yet? I'm sure your dcs have been most helpful coming up with possibilities...

TheNatty Sun 05-Jul-09 03:36:26

DCs have named him george lmao!
they will be pleased if he is here when they wake

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:40:24

that's a very nice name. But you might want to consider calling him George AIBU in honour of MN.

MadameDefarge Sun 05-Jul-09 03:54:34

I'm going to keep checking on you, but am going back to bed...insomnia hell...

midwife been, contractions slowed and less intense, not dialated at all.
shes gone back to hospital, and im going for a bath and to try and grab some sleep.

false alarm it seems, never had one of those b4!
