  1. Hi ladies

    Just letting you know that my baby FINALY came - 14 days overdue and not at all according to my birth plan!

    I was meant to be induced at 8:30am on Tuesday 8th, but I had contractions all through the night. When I got in to the hospital I was already 4cm dilated so didn't need an induction!:yahoo:

    I used gas and air for 12 hours, getting up to 8cm dilated, but the pain was incredible, and completely different to my other two births so I had an epidural. Around 12pm I was 10cm and was pushing for an hour. They checked me and said that there was no way the baby was going to fit, and it was in distress with the heart rate slowing way down during contractions and taking far too long to recover.

    So, my little boy arrived via emergency cesarean on Wednesday 9th at 1:50am, weighing a whopping 11lbs 14oz! :shocked:

    We came home on Friday, and are both doing very well. He's an absolute angel! :love:

    Still undecided on his name, we can't decide between Cai or Finley - any suggestions?
