    Brody's Birth Story -
    My waters ruptured spontaneously on Thursday night around 9:30pm just as I was leaving my stepsons room from saying goodnight. I was 35+6 weeks. Hubby called the hospital and we had to go straight in - a) baby is premmie until 37 weeks and b) I live an hour away from the hospital.
    We arrived at the hospital just before 11pm and went straight to the delivery suite for assessment. I hadn't started contractions so my OB recommended a steroid shot for the baby incase they came early and some sleeping tablets to have a good sleep and see if anything develops. Often labour occurs 24-48 hrs after rupture. Nothing happened overnight so the next morning I was transferred to the ward to wait and see and get my next steroid injection. I had random BH throughout the day but nothing regular. Friday night I woke to contractions mild but 3-5 mins apart and was transferred down to delivery. Hubby came back to the hospy and we called my mum as I was told I was in labour. Upon a vaginal assessment it was discovered that my cervix had not yet started to efface as all and it was probably best to have a pethadene injection to get some sleep whilst the contractions hopefully changed my cervix. As I woke the next morning I knew labour had stall as the contractions were no longer regular and in fact stopped for brief periods. The OB advised it wasn't labour and to transfer me back to the ward to wait and see. Nothing else happened that night. Sunday morning my random contractions stated to appear more frequent so I started to write notes of the times. By mid morning they were getting stronger and more frequent. As they started to take my breathe away and frequency got to 7-10 mins apart we notified the nurses and they put a trace on. Unaware of the results and concentrating on the contractions they said I was in labour and needed to be transferred back to delivery. When handing me over I was advised that baby didn't seem to happy and the heart rate was sitting around 170 bpm instead of the average over the last few days of 128 bpm. The OB had been called for emergency assessment. Contractions were getting stronger and harder to breathe through and I was given an internal to check my cervix. It was still very long. OB arrived in about 10 mins and took one look at the trace and said baby needed to come out straight away as it was in fetal stress. Things happened very quickly from here. I was prepped and transferred to theatre, given the epidural and baby was out within half an hour. It was all so so quick but everyone was so comforting and reassuring that I was surprisingly calm. My little man Brody Manning Williams was born at 3:34pm weighing in at 3.120kg (6pound 14ounces) and 50cm long. He was absolutely beautiful. Given straight to the paediatrician he was checked out and just noted to have minor laboured breathing. After having some skin to skin contact for about 15 mins they took him up to the nursery while I was stitched up and went to recovery.
    Brody is now 1 1/2 days old and doing well. He was given a drip of antibiotics and glucose as precaution for his premmie status and also as he and been in my ruptured waters for a few days. He has started to breastfeed although is a little sleepy doing it so I am also hand expressing and topping up where need be. He is a gorgeous little man and can't wait for him to get out of the nursery soon. It was certainly love at first sight xx

    My little miss slept from 8:30pm-4:00am!!! She's not even 5 weeks old!! How lucky am I?!?? I really think its the SOS technique we've been using on her. Two other ladies in my DIG use it too and they're bubbas are sleeping through the night. I highly recommend it for everyone when you're bubs are born

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day

    Dream girl he is gorgeous!! Congrats again.

    SOS stands for Save Our Sleep by Tizzie Hall. Awesome awesome book. You can start bubs as young as 2 weeks on it. She teaches self settling and a strict feeding routine. I don't do the feeding routine but I taught DD to self settle and every sleep bar the 5am sleep she settles herself and falls asleep with no patting, rocking or shushing from me. Makes life a whole lot easier!
