... weighing 7lb 9oz @ 6.56am. She is absolutely perfect and I am up on :cloud9:.

Birth story (sorry its long....) :rofl:

On the Thursday evening around 11.45pm I was in the BnB chat room chatting away when I started to get mild like tummy pains and (sorry TMI) then went for a massive clear out (thank god). So then thought it was only cos I had chicken tikka and had no clue I was in bloody labour... next thing a 'huge' incy wincy spider came running towards my feet at the side of my bed so had to be brave and squash him with the COSMO mag ! lol:rofl:

Anyways the pains started to get stronger... and the ladies in the chat room said I was in labour and to call mum... but I thought its now 1am and if its false labour I didnt wanna disturb mum.... anyway by 1.30am they were getting more painful so filled my hot water bottle and called mum who came round. The ladies in BnB chat room were so supportive bless them :hugs:.

Mum made me a drink and told me to phone the hospital as from the start pains were 5-6 mins apart and lastin between 45-60secs. Hospital said have a bath and see how u go, if they become unbearable ring back .... (this was about 2.30am).

By 3am I was in agony n had to sit for every contraction... so rang hospital and said I was coming down... pains were about 4mins apart n lasting just over a min. Mum called a taxi and I got in with my bags.... every bloody bump in the road was a challenge but at least there was no traffic.... got to the hospital and onto delivery suite and got a really laid back MW who said we will pop in to see ya in 10 mins and then arrange to get you checked over. Put me on the BP monitor and buggered off for ages..... I was grunting by this point lol....

She came back around 3.45am and asked me to get on the bed which was a challenge as the contractions were very strong. She asked what pain relief I wanted and when i could speak, replied 'edpidural ASAP'.... she then said ok we will do an internal then arrange for blood tests before we can give you an epi as your BP as been high this last week... I was ready to smack :hissy: her by this point.

She did the internal 5 mins later and then said cos my womb was tilted she was going to have to get a senior MW to check me again while she went and got some paracetamol for her headache!!!

Other MW was fab, really supportive, I was giving it 'ARGGHHH' through each contraction by this point... still no pain relief. Was 3-4cm dilated by 4.30am!

They then nearly bust my vain trying to put a canular in for epi.... so got a proper nurse to make another whole in me... by then there was no way i could sit up for 20 mins for an EPI so said can I have pethidine NOW! so they said yep.... give us 5 mins..... Grrrrrr

Gas and air then came out around 5.30am as i was proper screaming the shop down.... funny cow MW was still faffing over pethidine and then told me it take 30mins to work ... I was like ' you what' !:hissy::hissy:

At 6.15am I finally got the pethidine and was still screaming the place down, nice MW checked me again and said I was fully dilated and I was like 'I know' the head is coming NOOWWWW... she said open your legs n let me check and it was so hard. Contractions were really close together by this point. She then said yep you are right.... turn on your side as your womb is tilted.... I was swinging on the baby heartbeat machine trolley and other arm round mums neck while mum n MW held my leg up lol:rofl: screaming for ENGLAND!!!!! i said I am pushing now and its coming..... so she let me push away and 4 pushes the head was out.... another 2 pushes and baby Rihanna arrived and mum was in tears bless her and then I was crying..... nice MW said you have a beautiful baby girl.... I was crying so mum I couldnt see lol.... she then passed her to me... she is gorgeous..... xxx only got a few grazes so lucky :happydance:
