    For those not on the fb group baby Cason was born at 6:58am on 27th weighing a very healthy 8lbs 1oz at 38+3.
    I had a sweep on Wednesday, for the next 24 hours had the odd mild contraction then on the Friday night they started getting a bit more regular but still not really painful. Went to bed on Friday night. Woke up at 3 am and felt a trickle, stood up and my waters went everywhere. Contractions started within half and hour and I went straight into hospital due to my last labour being only 44 mins with twins. I was 2 cm on arrival but contracting regularly and the Intensity had really picked up. I went for a walk around the hospital which really helped and then they gave me gas and air when I got back onto delivery suite. They didn’t re examine me and just told me to go with it and soon I felt like I needed to push. I think I was pushing around 10 mins and he came out with his hands both up by his face. It was by far my most intense and painful labour so thankful it was quick. I have a graze either side where his hands were but no tears luckily. He came out looking very purple which they said was the speed and position he was born. It’s gone down a lot now but his face is still slightly dark. I’m actually feeling really well in myself just very tired. We had to stay in hospital overnight because little man has a heart murmur which is likely to be the same as his big brothers.
    Hope all of the other new mamas and babies are doing well.

    So turns out my feeling crappy wasn’t the flu…. Its covid. ](*,) So thankful for my rheumatologist who called all his contacts around all the nearby hospitals to get me in for the monoclonal antibody infusion. I got my results last night at 4:30pm and I’m here at the infusion clinic at 8am today. \\:D/ I’m already on day 6 of symptoms and feeling better so hoping I’m shady on the upswing and this infusion will knock it completely out. Babe just needs to stay put another week so i have my strength back and won’t have any restrictions.

    So... baby Theodore was finally born at 37+4 at 1:35am 28/11 weighing a teeny 5lb 13oz.
    Propess pessary put in about 1:30pm on 26/11, had backache start soon after and had regular tightenings. Said tightenings got more uncomfortable and painful but I was breathing through then fairly ok for a while. I would only have around 10-30 seconds in between each one though, and by 11pm they were relentless and I was joking around (but not joking really lol) about getting to labour ward to get an epidural. However whilst on the ctg machine Theodores heart rate kept dropping with each contraction so they removed the pessary and took me around to labour ward to be more closely monitored, and to examine me to see if the contractions were doing anything or not, to see if they could break waters etc (not without the epidural, by now I was in agony!)
    After examination I was still only 1cm, cervix posterior still. They gave me a couple of injections to slow down and stop the contractions but this didn't work.
    They then wanted to break my waters and attach a clip to his head but at the same time kept saying we've only got about 5 minutes to make a decision given his heart rate dropping still. A minute later no waters were broken but I was classed as a category 1 emergency section and down I went. I had to be put under general anaesthesia so OH had to wait upstairs.
    Following the section, we were told that the placenta had some sort of bleed/abruption in it which was likely irritating the uterus and not letting the contractions stop despite medication to do so. So section would have happened anyway. Still in hospital today, just want to check everything to do with pre eclampsia is going (so far so good) and hopefully we can go home tomorrow.
    Pics because he's just too cute lol

    Babies!!!

    Congrats @Tasha36089 on your baby boy! That sounds like an intense labour but good to have it over so quickly and without any tears as well!

    @aymz1983 Congratulations to you too! An emergency c section under general anaesthesia sounds scary, but I’m so happy to hear you and your little boy are doing well!

    @Rach87 Oh no! I hope you start feeling better soon and the medication works. If you’re feeling better and it’s day 6 I’d guess you should be on the upswing now.

    So growth scan didn’t go as hoped today. Bub dropped from 50th centile to 9th. Flow from placenta good though and fluid normal. Movements good and normal.
    Went to clinic and my BP was high and protein in my urine. Had to go to triage for blood pressure monitoring but it had come down over the hour. Pre-eclampsia bloods came back mildly abnormal (no worse than they have been throughout) so been able to go home.
    Today should have been my last scan but I have to go back a week today for another scan and consultant appt. they said if anything at all untoward next week also they will just deliver that day (or the next after steroids) so to bring my bag with me. Close call today, just have to monitor her movements, thankfully wriggling away as I type. Let’s hope she continues to, I’d like to make my original section date of 2 weeks today if I can!

    Sorry to hear things didn’t go so great today. Hopefully next week things will be fine and you’ll make it the two weeks. A friend of mine had an ultrasound during her pregnancy that showed a big drop is the percentile of baby’s size but it ended up just being a bad measurement. At her next scan everything was fine.

    Day 9 of covid, day 3 post infusion and I feel like Im finally on the path to recovery. Breathing is much better and I can actually take a deeper breath with minimal effort. Pulse ox is steady around 96% and I was able to eat 3 full meals yesterday. I had lost 5 lbs since getting sick (and yea NOT good when I had already struggled to gain and was barely at 19lbs) but I gained 1 lbs back thankfully. Not able to eat as much today but Im trying. I know baby will get what she needs - Ive been downing vitamins like mad and getting all the fluids. So praying she stays in as long as possible bc at this point theres no way I can push out a baby. :-(

    happy for the babies born! Cant believe its officially our month!!!!

    @Rach87 So glad to hear you’re doing better! Was wondering how you were feeling. Hoping you get your energy back and are feeling great when delivery rolls around.
