He's here......He's here.....

Ok so they eventually decided on a date for me......after changing it about a million times. Tuesday 26th was the date. The sugar and UTI was just too out of control to warrant keeping bubs in any longer. Was making me sick and bubs sick so better out than in!!!

Warning!!! The following description may be a little graphic!! read on at your own risk!! LOL

Was booked in for an inducement at 7.30am. Dr didnt come until nearly 9! Typical!! Did an internal and decided that he wouldnt insert any gel, he would just stretch, sweep the membranes and see if I would start on my own. He was worried about having to do a caeserian if it came to that because the paed's dr wouldnt be here until wednesday morning! And being a gesty baby, there was significant risks involved. So he did the sweeping! HELLO!!! Man did that hurt!!! Could have pre-warned me!!!

Ok for the rest of the day he wanted me to walk around and not lay down. see if we could get things happening! well that was exciting!! I couldnt leave the ward because if I did I couldnt get back in without buzzing the desk and they get a bit peed off with that fairly quickly, so it was pacing the corridors and walk back and forth in my room! Excitement plus! NOT!!!

So that went on for most of the day. i was getting a few twinges but nothing much and the mid-wife kept checking on me but nothing was happening and I was getting cheesed off because I wanted it to be over!! Grrrr!!!!

Just after 4ish the dr called back in to see how I was going. i had dilated to about 3cms. Whoopee chook!!! So basically nothing. He said he would let me go a bit longer and maybe he might break my waters about 8pm if nothing was happening! I was mega peed off!! Had been there all day and for nothing!! i think he knew i was miffed because he came back about 15 mins later and gave me the choice of getting it going now or waiting til the morning! Well I'm sure you can guess what my decision was!!

So at nearly 5pm he broke my waters. YAY!!!! scott left it was all too much for him poor boy!! So off I went walking the corridors again. My friend came up to visit me just before 6 and went for a walk with me. By the time i got back to my room ten minutes later, my contractions were less than 2 minutes apart!! When i go in to labour I dont mess around!!! I rang my mum on the way to the labour room! GET HERE NOW OR YOU ARE GOING TO MISS IT!!! Was what i yelled at her between contractions. My friend helped me walk the short distance. She came for a visit and got the floorshow!! By the time my mum got there I was already pushing!!

JACK NICOLIN was born at 6.54pm on Tuesday 26th June 2007! After a brief 2 hours and 2 minute labour!! He weighed 6lb 12 ozs or 3064 gms. HC was 33cms (so really tiny head!!) and length was 51cms or 21 inches! He one long and skinny little boy!!! But o so sweet!! The doctor didnt make it and neither did the student mid-wife! All that was present was the wonderful Genivieve (mid-wife), Trudi (head of ward), my mum, and my friend Sue who decided to stay! Which was good because she grabbed my camera and started taking photos even though she didnt have her glasses and really couldnt see that great! She was just pointing and shooting! Thanks agin for that Sue!!

Here he is!!!!
