Re: Vital vocab!!

My waters broke in the bath - I was idly thinking 'it looks like someone is poaching eggs in this water' when I realized what had happened. The bath was pre-obstetrician appointment anyway so my husband was at home luckily, I remember trying to get my 3 year old daughter to 'get Daddy' and her not wanting to..........Whistles [Www]

Re: Vital vocab!!

My first Labour was 20 hours+ , the baby was breech and it was a 'normal' delivery (these days it usually a cesarian), epidural, kept in bed most of the time. Boy did I learn from that, 3 hours for the next one, I stayed on my feet as much as possible and let gravity help.Smile [:)]

Re: Vital vocab!!

Hi all, just to say all went well - Henry, 3.25 kilos, was born at 5.20ish Sunday afternoon, all well.  Squidge's hippy credentials took something of a battering though, as she ended up filled with more drugs than a Rolling Stone, after stating in bold on her birth plan that she in no way wanted any artificial painkilling assistance.  Perhaps I just put the TENS machine pads in the wrong places on her back - not sure.

need sleep now zzzzzz.....

Tell her not to feel bad about it, Mark.  They don't call it labour for nothing, and until you've actually been through it you can't predict how much it will hurt for you.  Important thing is she has a fine healthy baby and they're both OK.
