Looks like a brilliant programme - will make me cry with all preg hormone

aww poor gabriel. What a beautiful beautiful baby boy.

Am recording it - will bring back birth of DD at 29 weeks. Will keep large box of tissues handy. BTW she's a strapping 2.6 year old now!!

he will be ok won't he? I always get really emotional at stuff like this, especially since i've had my own babies. Poor little soul

IAmAwenSoNobOffIWasHereFirst Mon 09-Jul-07 21:11:36

I hope so. I think he will. This is really incredible. I forgot how red the stretchmarks look. Tears.. awww I am sooo emotional.

hows baby daisy. I remember your birth thread

bumperlicious Mon 09-Jul-07 21:13:52

Ooh, I'm feeling really traumatised by this! DD had meconium in her waters and cord wrapped around her neck, it makes you think about what could have happened

IAmAwenSoNobOffIWasHereFirst Mon 09-Jul-07 21:15:07

Get the baby out now

very scarey..

daisyandbabybootoo Mon 09-Jul-07 21:17:23

babyboo is lovely thanks...although she doesn't want to be put down today!

oooh, this c-section is bringing it all back...babyboo needed to be resuscitated apparently...i didn't find out till i was reading my notes afterwards

bumperlicious Mon 09-Jul-07 21:17:26

God, I think only 2.5 weeks from DD's birth is a bit too soon to be watching this. I'm glad I didn't watch it before though!

elasticbandstand Mon 09-Jul-07 21:17:48

of course he will be ok, this is fight for life...
but edge of your seat. telly

daisyandbabybootoo Mon 09-Jul-07 21:18:13

yay.....well done arnab (sp?)

bumperlicious Mon 09-Jul-07 21:18:46

Oh, daisy, I didn't realise that. Is that common with a CS as they haven't had the fluid squeezed out by the birth canal? How scary.

IAmAwenSoNobOffIWasHereFirst Mon 09-Jul-07 21:19:03

<relief. bless him. Gosh shouldnt be watching this. Big fat tears splodging on keyboard. [get a grip awen]

Aww daisy.. Seems like forever till I will be holding my little one. Scary to know that baby had to be resuss. Take it she is all fine now tho. x

bumperlicious Mon 09-Jul-07 21:21:30

Ooooh, can't watch...

IAmAwenSoNobOffIWasHereFirst Mon 09-Jul-07 21:21:47

I never realised how seriously meconium affects the baby.

daisyandbabybootoo Mon 09-Jul-07 21:22:03

awen...i hope you're not getting too upset and worried by this...these tings should be banned for pg women

when are you due?

ELF1981 Mon 09-Jul-07 21:22:55

I was watching the natural birth and talking about the risk and wondered how any body has a natural delivery, then I saw the section one with the cord

daisyandbabybootoo Mon 09-Jul-07 21:23:11

i didn' i can understand what all the panic is about if theres meconium in your waters

ELF1981 Mon 09-Jul-07 21:24:10

bumper - it is common for c-section babies to have lots of fluid due to it not being squeezed out, which I didn't know until AFTER I'd had my section and spent what felt like a lifetime holding my breath to hear her cry for the first time.

IAmAwenSoNobOffIWasHereFirst Mon 09-Jul-07 21:24:26

new years eve. Already have one born by emerg c-section. Complicated birth. Tbh I am getting a better understanding. (that will be the nurse in me i guess). Pretty sure gabriel will be ok as this is a programme about amazing survival.

someone give that girl a hug for godsake

Poor Faye - her dp doesnt seem to be much support but perhaps he is traumatised too.
