Induction booked for the 26th due to pre eclampsia. Induction started .....worst experience ever, took about 36 hours to get to three cm. the pressure was immense, my head felt like I was going to pop, I wanted to cry so I said ‘ look I can’t do this, when can I press the button to say no and cut this off’. I’m not sure the charge midwife was impressed but by god I had to take the bull by the horns, they wanted to leave me another 10 hours. The surgeon came in and said baby had low heart rate and could quite clearly see I wasn’t right and I could have kissed him when he gave the green light for the section. 7.30 Rowanne was born. Little madam and love of my life. She was under the uv lights in the hosp which both she and I hated....I cried, I actually cried. She is back home now and of course keeping me up all night. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
