So 5 days overdue and feeling like I’d been “leaking” for a few days, there was a definite breaking of waters. No contractions but the hospital said we should go in and get checked out. I drove myself to the hospital along with my partner at about 11am and we slowly made our way up to the birthing suites.


Because they weren’t sure how long my waters had been broken for (previously mentoned leaking) the doctor strongly suggested that I be given drugs to induce me, I waited about 2 hours and started having contractions but wasn’t progressing quickly enough, this meant that I had to have the monitors on for the whole thing and have a drip attached, this also ment that I wasn’t allowed to go in the bath or shower which sucked since hot water was going to be my pain relief of choice.

Now the plan WAS to have a drug free, natural birth…

I got to 7cm with no pain relief and then cracked because of the lack of hot water and asked if I could be given morphene. I got to fully dialated and was pushing as much as I could but nothing seemed to be progressing, there was a lot of people in the room and they told us that the baby was in distress and that we would have to go to theatre for an emergency c-section. By this point I was completely exhausted and was just doing my best to do whatever we needed to have our baby.

While still having contractions almost on top of each other I had to hold still for them to give me the spinal anasthesia, this ment that I was awake while they did the cesarean. I couldn’t feel anything below my boobs and I felt completely out of it.

I was so dissapointed with myself that I couldn’t have him naturally but was later told that there was no physical way I could have had him naturally as he was so big. After hearing this I felt better knowing that I had in fact done all that I could.

Once he was out my partner held him close to me and while I couldn’t see him, I remember feeling his tiny breaths on my face, I didn’t get to hold him until about an hour later once I was taken back to my room.

We stayed in hospital for 3 nights and are now at home recovering… I can’t believe how much I love the little bundle <3 <3 <3

I need more pregnancy/moms of little boys blogs to follow. I feel like everyone is either having a girl or is the mother of one and I would really like more baby boy blogs to follow. Not that I don’t enjoy your little princess’ (; I just wanna see more little boys/things about little boys on my dash.
(That made me sound like a super creep.)

Today is R U OK day here in Australia + since I can&#8217;t really leave the house, I&#8217;m just going to put the question out to all the tumblr people: R U OK?? Be it something little or something big that&#8217;s bothering you, my ask is always open and I will always reply, even if I don&#8217;t know you I care if you&#8217;re doing alright - It&#8217;s a tough world and sometimes its good just to know that there&#8217;s someone to talk to
