So my little girl is here! She arrived 10 days early via caesarean. Weighing in at 6pd 7oz (2.920kg), 49cm long with 33cm head circumference.
Nothing went to plan unfortunately with my labour, I had planned a natural birth but main thing is we are both healthy.
My waters broke at home at 6am on the 11th, being GBS positive I had to go in to hospital and get antibiotics. Still hadn't had a single contraction by 11am so they hooked me up to some syntocinon to get things moving, Contractions started almost immediately. By 3pm I was only dilated to a 2. By 7ish contractions were 30 seconds apart and very painful so after trying gas ( made me sick) and a morphine injection ( did nothing) I had an epidural. By 9:30pm I was still only at a 2. Bubs was high and posterior and it appeared there was no way she was likely to move into my pelvis anytime soon, so we decided on a caesarean.
Lydia Mae made it into the world at 11:35pm 11/11. Perfect little angel.
