Thank you all for your lovely replies. We spent our first night at home last night and are both so much more relaxed. The hospital is so busy felt like we didnt get any time to chill out together.
I was taken in to the hospital on Thursday to start induction but as there were no beds on the labour ward we had to wait until Saturday. Things moved really quickly then, they broke my waters and started drip to bring on labour and things started within minutes. Pains got very intense very quickly, and used my yoga to keep moving as much as I could on the monitors. I dreaded every time they went near that drip to turn it up anotch and asked about the epidural, luckily had reached 4cms already and they were able to do it fairly quickly, gas and air kept me going til then. I was lucky they didnt check me again before the epidural as I dont think they would have given it to me as by the time it was in I was 10cms already! (Think those points worked Mark!) Baby Lorcan was born with a bit of drama as his heart rate dipped towards the end, the midwife who was with me all day didnt even make it back from her lunch it was so quick in the end. Daddy and I held our breath until we heard those screams and in no time Lorcan was on my chest cuddled up and content. The hospital staff were lovely and even let my sister up onto the labour ward to see him as she is a doc and was due back on call.
I am feeling great myself, its a bit strange to have everyone doing things for me tho. My Dh’s nerves seem to be passing (only child never around babies) and he is a great support. Looking forward to seeing friends and family now and settling in together as a family. Nothing will take the smile off my face 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀November 8, 2011 at 9:42 pm #117953Taylor5Member
Well done you, I think all the hubbies are the same, its tough on them… i know they know their partner is pregnant, but when the baby arrives i think the pregnancy becomes real for the men xxxx
