My waters broke Saturday morning around 7am and my contractions were like period cramps nothing I couldn't handle knowing they would subside. By lunch I was only two cm and by 4 they decided induction wasn't working and told me I would need an epidural and the stronger iv drugs the next morning. And stopped the induction pills
However by 9:30pm my contractions were a lot more painful but still irregular I tried to sleep but the contractions were getting stronger at 11:36 I told my husband to call the midwives I wanted a break from the pain I wasn't going to labour all night like that if I wasn't progressing only to feel angus pop through my cervix and he was born after 5 minutes of pushes because he was only as big as a 25 weeker in the head and much skinnier born 11:56.
I was lucky that up until the last short part of labour I did not have very much pain. My mum rubbing my back was enough to relieve the pain.
I think the pain was manageable because it gave me something to focus on rather than my son having passed away.
Any specifics you want to know ask away I'm an open book. I like to share I feel using my story to help other mums might be the only good thing that came of the situation.
