    Default I thought I was in labor but totally wasn't ....then I was and now I have a b...

    Just put the birth story up on my blog:

    ----

    Isaac is here born last night 10/11/16 at 10.08pm. 3.71kg, 51.5cm long.
    Went into hospital at 7.20 after having contractions all day, he was born less than 3 hours later in the water.

    So after my last update, I was having regular strong contractions all day (since 5am). They were slightly more painful than period pain and lasting about a minute long, every half an hour. Around midday they increased to 15 minute intervals. then around 3pm they were getting closer together 8-10 mins. I tried distracting myself during the day by going for a walk in the shops and watching a movie on TV, and I was drinking so much water! I must have drank about 4 litres of water. I was peeing every 5 minutes.

    At about 5pm I told DH to pick up the kids from childcare and get the nanny to come over to watch them because I was going to have a baby. Contractions were getting stronger and they were 5 mins apart.

    Nanny didn't get to our house until 7pm! this is partly because DH didn't believe I was actually in labour so he told her not to rush. If it wasn't for the fact that I didn't end up giving birth on the way to the hospital, I might just have to have murdered him.

    Got to hospital and was told I was at 3cm. It was slightly disheartening because I was literally in labour all day, and when I got to hospital the contractions were 2 mins apart so I was sure I would be pushing in no time.. Well, clearly I forgot what active labour contractions feel like.. And now that I've done it again, I'm happy for my brain to forget it forever because I seriously don't want to remember.. Ever!

    After the internal check I got into the bath for some relaxation.. I was aware that it was way too soon to be in the bath but I have to admit it felt good. I got out after half an hour and decided bouncing on the fitball was what I wanted to do.. At about 9.30 I had another internal and MW said I was 5cm dilated. It was really painful lying on the bed through a contraction! I was almost in tears so I decided to get back in the bath. After about 15 mins in the water the contractions were getting even worse.. got out for another internal and I was 6cm.. At this stage the mw called my ob to come and deliver the baby. After that check I didn't leave the bath. About 20 mins later I was pushing and baby was born in the water!

    I went from 5cm to pushing in less than an hour and OB didn't make it in time for the birth! had a 2nd degree tear and hours and hours of boob after that.

    Baby is so cute and looks identical to his big brother Jacob. Can't wait to introduce Isaac to both his big brothers this morning
