January 17th. 2017 | Leave a comment
My beautiful little daughter arrived 3 weeks early. I Woke up at 5.15 am on a Tuesday morning with bad pains, the next one was 6.15am with bit of bleeding. As this was my first pregnancy I wasn’t sure if they were contractions at first. The Pains were coming then every half hour, then every 20 mins then ten minutes. I rang the hospital at 10.45am & they said due to the ‘show’ to come in. I left at 11 & arrived at the hospital at 12pm & then of course the contractions stopped when I reached the hospital.
When I was admitted at about 12 o clock they did an internal and I was 4cm. They monitored me every 15 mins. Next internal was two hours later I was 6cm but hadn’t progressed so they let me go another two hours then at 8.45pm they said they had to break my waters and OMG I went from 6cm to fully dilated within less than 10 minutes. This was the toughest part. At this stage I asked for the epidural but I knew it was too late as within seconds I said “I have to push”
