Really starting to fruck me off now!!!
Wow girls I am MIA for a few days and it has taken me an hour to catch up! Lots going on here. Congratulations on having your donor on board @tuxcat. @Blossom74 it's good to see you so happy again. @tegs26 I had early bleeding too. It was all fine however and apparently really common. I haven't seen the four corners episode yet but the paediatrician who came to see Bub this morning mentioned it. He was pretty disgusted with the angle they took.
AFM induction started later than scheduled as the labour ward was full. When we finally got underway things started fast. I had contraction start straight away but my cervix refused to dilate more than 3cm. So we had the membranes ruptured and then syntocoanin started. Still it was slow progress. 18 hours later it was decided to turn off the epidural so I could feel contractions to push. 2 hours of pushing later I was freaking exhausted and bub was not coming out in a hurry. Doc came in and they used the suction to prise bubba out. Thank God. So big bubba cone head entered the world but little bubba wanted to stay tucked up in the womb. I was bleeding a bit too so they took me off to surgery to 'manually remove' little bubba. Got back to maternity at 11:20 last night. Very happy but sad too that little bubba didn't get to enter the world in a more natural way. Oh and we have a little girl. Eryn weighing in at 3.38kg.
Congratulations on the birth of your two bubbas @faithandhopellove! Im sad for you that little one didn't make it but thrilled for you too that you have your baby Eryn! She is quite big too!! You sound really good, it must be so surreal that its finally happened! Sending you massive hugs and I thought of you when I had a few glasses of bubbles last night! Enjoy being a mum!! Would love to see a photo if you feel comfortable posting one. super congrats
congratulations @faithandhopellove! sounds exhausting for you. I'm sorry little bubba wanted to stay put a bit longer, I guess you got to experience 2 kinds of births. Eryn's a beautiful name. rest up now!
