Wow what a day, after having labour pains every 6 mins from 1.30am I stayed in bed breathing through them til 6.30am then got up showered, made arrangements for grandparents to pic up Nathan. Hospital said to come in whenever ready - so headed in just after 9! Contractions were 3mins apart all the way but slowed down the minute they put the trace monitor on! typical - but then i had an almighty one and my waters popped. they examined me and i was already 5cm Back was getting tooo painful, so was offered a water birth despite not having a birth plan to do so i did! I had no gas and air, no nothing - she was born underwater at 1.04pm weighing a whopping 9lb Wasn't expecting such a big bubs cos the growth scan said she was 6lb2oz 3 weeks ago only had one sleepsuit with us that fitted! bless. Left hospital at 5.20pm!
