Congratulations F&C, I had exactly the same with blood loss and my placenta!!
Here's what happened...
Our little yellow bundle turned pink on Sunday. We have named her Darcy and she is the most beautiful little baby with a good set of lungs on her!!
The midwife came round ours at around 2am to check me and I was already 7cm and having really strong contractions. We got to the hospital at about 3am and got in the pool straight away. I was exhausted but managed to do it all without any pain relief at all which I was so proud about, she was born at 5:37am weighing 7lb 1oz.
They drained the pool while I was holding Darcy and hoped I would deliver the placenta straight away. The placenta wasn't budging so I had the injection which didn't work either. I'd also lost a litre and a half of blood so was rushed to theatre where they gave me an epidural to manually get the placenta out.
I had I stay in over night so they could check my blood levels as they thought I might need a blood transfusion. Thankfully everything came back ok and I was let home yesterday afternoon.
I'm feeling really sore but it was all well worth it. So in love.
Hi ladies! Congrats to all those who've had their babies. Baby Eddie was born on Nov 28 at 8:11 pm after 31.5 hours of labor! He weighed 9 lbs 5 oz and was 21.5 inches long. I will update with my birth story just as soon as I can. He is absolutely beautiful and we love him very much!
