I had my baby girl at 39+4days on 3rd March 2012...
My husband and I did dtd on Thursday morning, straight away I had a bloody show but nothing happened until Friday evening, I wanted to dtd again, managed to persuaded my husband to do it
No contractions afterward so thought maybe it not my time yet, watched television then was about to get off the sofa to go bed but I felt a pop! Yes at 10.30pm my water broke, a lot of water gushing, we was so exciting, rang the labour ward, told us to go in but there chance for us to send home as this is my first baby. Rang the taxi, my contractions began, to be frankly they do bloody hurt so much I want to cry!
Arrived the labour ward just after 12am, no room was given, so we was send to waiting room with other people, I felt angry and embarrassed as I was in f**king pain, told the midwife I was really serious in pain, they moved me to other waiting room but no one here, waited for about a hour, I felt dizzy and so much pain, my husband was fuming and told someone, finally someone took me in, got given the room, luckily had really lovely midwife, checked me, already 4cm at 1.15am, my husband and I really thought we would be in for long morning, so I had gas and air, they do help but didn't take the pain away, I was out of it to notice it, I asked for epidural, they offered me wiser birth to see how it goes, I agree, went to birth centre, waited for water bath to be ready, but unfortunately I was in so much pain and started to leaking blood, they decided to cancelled the water bath and send me back to labour, checked me again I was already 10cm at 3.40am!!! Ready to push until 4.12am I had my beautiful baby girl Pollyanna Jane Tovey weighting 7lbs1oz on 3rd March! She had full dark hair, look like his daddy!
No snitches nor tears, I recovered quickly, we moved to other ward, fortunately we both was allowed to send home that day.
Just the kind of labour I hoped for and did successful!
We both are very much in love with her and still on
Will upload picture of my little Polly soon as when I'm on laptop as I am on iPad at the moment.
