Well, I have left dh down stairs now with ds and sleeping Freya and have popped up for a quick bath, so here is a quick birth diary summary for you all.
Friday night we had some friends round and I had a few twinges around 11:30pm but nothing to speak of so we went to bed - I got up at 3:30am and sat on my gym ball and had a cup of tea, by 6:30am I decided to wake dh and call my mum. Mum arrived at 7:30am and we had another cup of tea - I wanted to saty at home a bit longer but ds was getting a little upset when the contractions were coming and got a bit clingy, so we left for the hospital and stopped at McDonalds for something to eat first - we got to the hospital at 10:15am where they examined me and said I was 4cm, my waters went on the way to the hospital and when they checked them they said that there was meconium (sp?) in them, so the baby would need a pediatrician present at the birth which upset me. They also said that they would check me again at 4:00pm. Well at 2:00pm Freya was born - Happy, healthy, with no problems at all - I had no pain medication at all, which I was surprised at and only 4 hours in the hospital We had to stay in for 24hours because of the meconium, but she was fine and Toby has been great with her - so all said and done, I would say it was a great experience and even now I would do it all again Good luck to you all and I hope that you get to see your lo's soon. Sorry for the long post - am off to enjoy my bath now and I might try to post a picture of Freya when I get out. I will let you know if I do. Take care
