I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of u for your support and guidance through a difficult first time pregnancy. I could not have got through it without u and I'm very proud to announe the arrival of Elliot Christopher at 7.50am on 25 Aug. He weighed 6lb 10oz and following a drama filled labour (he was almost born at home!) after 40 mins of noted labour he came into the world. For those ftm in uk, please ensure u get checked internally if u think u r in labour they sent me home without doing so at 5.30 am without checking and told me I wasn't in labour cos they felt my contractions were too irregular and I didn't seen too be in enough pain when I had them. I was trying to stay calm and manage the pain through breathing techniques as taught by midwife so I could have a water birth! By 6am I was trying not to push and my husband was on the phone to hospital and paramedics. We r just happy that all is ok and our baby is perfect, we even left the hospital at 1pm the same day!
