Well it's been a while since I have posted, let alone even read anything! Sorry guys! Massive congratulations to anyone who has delivered their babies and hope mum life is treating you well!
Also hope anyone still waiting to meet their little one is going strong in their final weeks of pregnancy!
I was due on October 28th, however our little man had different plans!
I had been feeling less movement and just over 2 weeks ago felt nothing during the day so after trying to get bubs moving the hubby suggested we get checked out. All was ok, with a quick scan and seeing bubs move heaps... Thankfully we had a growth scan booked in already for the next day, so we were sent home!
The next day at our scan my husband said he could tell something was wrong but I was oblivious to it all.... We then had a follow up appointment after the scan and the doc informed us that things weren't looking good (in which I started crying straight away!). There was no fluid around bubs and the blood flow to the placenta wasn't good so we needed to induce that night!
Shock to the system but happy with all the timing.... Contractions started as soon as the balloon was put in, not to mention I was already 2cm dilated... The next day it all started happening!
Unfortunately they couldn't increase my drip fast enough as bubs heart rate would keep dropping, and the pain i was in wasn't helping either!
After my second epidural, as the first didn't work, life was good!!! Omg drugs were amazing... I was able to rest and regain my strength! Then by 11.13pm on September 30th, I was able to birth our little man into the world with only a minor tear! (The doc wanted to cut me but I was adament I didn't want that so she told me to push harder and I did! It's amazing what our minds can overcome!!)
George Maxwell, weighing in at 6lb1oz and 49.5cm, born at exactly 36 weeks! Insulin levels not the best but was brought under control easily!
Life is amazing being a Mum 💙
Good luck to everyone who will be labouring in the coming weeks. Xx
