    My baby Sofia Lily was 3 days early and born on 15th May 2015 weighing 10lb 5oz. 19 hours of labour resulting in emergency c-section!
    My waters broke slowly from midnight, got to the hospital about 10.30am and found out I was 4cm dilated. I had maconium in the waters and baby was back to back so I wasn't allowed the water birth I had originally wanted. The contractions were so close together and the pain in my back was like nothing I've ever experienced so I opted for pain relief. Started with gas & air and diamorphine but that didn't work so decided to have an epidural. Although it didn't really take effect. I could still feel the contractions in my back, they were milder but could still feel them. They had to keep topping up epidural as I was still using gas & air with every contraction. Just as I got to 6cm the epidural seem to kick in( well that's what I thought but my contractions stopped) they put me on a drip to speed things up and boy did it!!! By 20:00pm I was 8cm, but then they struggled to find babies heart rate as she kept wriggling off the Monitor and wouldn't keep clip on her head. They had to do an examination where they collected blood from the babies head to check oxygen levels. They took to get tested and came back very low, then babies heart rate went up to 225. Lots of doctors and midwives rushed in at 22.30 and said I had to go for an emergency c-section and baby Sofia was delivered at 22.39! They don't earn you about the shakes and I was being sick which was really unpleasant. I lost 1.5 litres of blood so had to have a blood transfusion. And Sofia had an infection so had to be taken to neonatal. All the staff were amazing though. We made it home on the 18th which was my due date! Our little treasure was worth every minute of pain and we love her to the moon and back

    My little angel came a week early due to some complications. We were admitted during my check-up. Jaiden Marie was born May 12th at 5:58pm. She was 5lb 9oz. After being induced I only dilated to 2 after hours of labor. We had an unplanned c-section. :( After weeks of regret I'm now glad we did it this way! Love my babygirl. :x
