    OK sorry if this is all over the place, I've had many many painkillers..lol

    So we headed into the hospital for 6am and boy was I freaking out! We checked into the ward and we both got dressed for theatre and sat there anxiously waiting. In my pregnancy diary I had said we chose her name but truth be told we were still swinging between the two that morning! We were told that we go down as soon as we get the call and that it could happen any time from now until lunch so I prepared myself for a long wait. 25 minutes later the midwives come in and say It's time to go, by now my anxiety was through the roof! I never expected to actually be wheeled down on time, and we still hadn't chosen her name! We checked into pre op and they did a quick ultrasound to locate bub and the placenta. It was then I said to dh out of the two names we will both say the first that comes to mind at the same time. We both said Sophie and it just felt right and perfect. The midwives were so lovely, they talked me through my fears and made sure I felt completely supported. My main fear was that the spinal would fail and that I would end up under a GA and miss her birth because I have had 2 failed epidurals during my last two births. So we were in there for about 10 minutes and next minute it was my turn!

    I said bye to Dh who had to wait outside while I had the spinal put in. So I sat on the edge of the bed and off they went putting the spinal in. One of the theatre crew (not sure what he was) came up and held my hands while they did it because he could see I was panicking. After 5 locals and multiple tries they managed to successfully get it in! He said that unfortunately it was a struggle and it took over half n hour so I am feeling pretty lucky Dh came in and sat down, I told him to block my ears and to let the OB know that I didn't want a running commentary. So after a lot of pulling and tugging our beautiful girl was born at 9:27am. No breathing issues and caked in vernix. Dh went over with her and cut the rest of the cord and bought her over. I was bawling my eyes out and had the shakes so I wasn't able to hold her but I did just stare at her because I couldn't believe after everything she was finally here. Unfortunately the hospital is renovating recovery so I wasn't able to have her with me Dh took her back to the ward and gave her a bottle. The staff along the way were just amazing, I couldn't have asked for anything better.

    Thankfully I was only in recovery for 45 minutes so was back in no time We are so in love with her, she's such a beautiful baby and we really can't wipe the smiles off our face.

    Getting out of bed for the first time and having a shower was a complete failure. I have been drugged up to the eye balls and still in agony but she is worth every bit of pain
