(was male doc, dh wasnt happy, get what ur given at public hospital lol) only was getting cramps after that nothing to worry about. applied second lot of gel at 11Pm and let me rest for the night, not that i could sleep! dh stayed right by my side all night. in the morning i sent him home to shower and to eat while the girls preped me to have a drip and my waters broken, which they did basically right away! and as soon as the liquid hit my veins i was in full labour, dh came back as i was having my second contraction:-) good timing baby!

    ... ''stuff her'' looked at my gorgeous husband who was holding my hand, and began to push.
    i think he panicked and went to get the midwife... i can't remember but next min she was there helping as she had to stretch my cervix around the babies head as i pushed... hurt like hell but 20Min later our beautiful son was born...
    my dh couldn't believe how strong and determined i was and could not tell me enough how proud he was of me. especially with no pain relief i was Damn proud of myself! :-D

    Congratulations! Love the name. Sounds like you are blessed with an awesome birthing body - gives you the option of no intervention the next time, if there is a next time. Babymoon blessings!
