Amy! Your last weekend preggers! So exciting!! Yay more bubbas coming!
Km glad you got out for dinner last night, sorry your placenta hasn't moved but at least your munchkin is putting on weight!
ATM we are saying no to anymore kids!! Nah only joking, I think we are going to try naturally once we get the go ahead and if we don't fall in 6 months, back to do ivf again. We figure it will be a tough few years with two close together but we don't want to wait as it took us 4 years to get this monkey. And they will be great buds going up together...
Are you guys doing the eat, play sleep routine? We just started it but Braydon tends to fall asleep in the mornings while feeding, so we miss out on tummy time for a couple of cycles. It's only cause he is up partying all hours of the night before lol
Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. Well what a ride.
So waters broke around 9pm so frantically crammed my nesting in the half an hour before I came into hospital ( cleaned both toilets, our shower and basin, did a load of washing, made up Williams bed, emptied the rubbish did the dishes and most importantly my shaving). Was confirmed that waters had broke so had to get a cannula and start antibiotics for gsb ( most uncomfortable big needle in my hand).
Had contractions that got a bit stronger round 3.30 so hoped in the shower for a bit. Thought I would give the bath a go at about 6 am which didn't do much for the contractions but was great in between relief.
Really thought I had to poo but just enjoyed sitting on the loo for a bit ( took the pressure off my tail bone). Cause my waters had broke and cause of the gsb they said if they examined me I would have to stay on the monitor for the rest of the labour so they were holding out as long as possible. Just before 6.30 I said I really feel like pooing ( and know that this is a sign so go the midwife to check me ) I was hurrying her up to get her gloves on and with a surprised look she said can I give a little push so she could feel how far and was very shocked to feel so much of his head.
Well then did she rush cause after one real push with a bit of panting in the middle our gorgeous William Geoffrey was born at 6.33am weighing 6pd 9 and 50cm long.
Only have grade 1 tear this time so feeling awesome there. He feed like a champ first go ( which I was a bit nervous about) and has been asleep since. Omg never remembered the burn feeling as they come out , this time it felt like I was burning all the way down my legs to the tips of my toes. Lucky pushing is the shortest part.
Sorry for the essay but I wanted to write it down so I can read back on this too.
Oh and he has the biggest feet so I keep calling him flipper he he he.
Dragonfly - yay!!!! Congratulations lol gosh I would love to experience that lol I know my csect was for all the right reasons and was unavoidable to get my beautiful baby to me hopefully next time I get to enjoy the pain that is a vaginally birth x
Oh out of curiosity I went online to find a conversion calculator from kgs to pound as I don't know how it works n I was wrong mason was not 5 pound born in fact 4lb15 which was 2.26kg so just off five pound. Lol what a light weight.
