Sofiya's Birth Story

Oct 14, 2010 - 9 comments

Well I didnt get induced on the Monday as my labour started on the Saturday 9.15am when I was at dance class with my girls...I stayed at home until 5pm by then my contractions were 6 mins apart I got to the delivery suite and was examined I was 3 cm dialated and contractions were 4 mins apart after 1 hr and 1/2 I was fully dialated and really needed to push I had only had gas and air and it was too late for an epidural...My waters broke and I began to push I pushed for 1 hour and the doctor wasnt happy with my progress as she was back to back with me and her head wasnt coming down so they made the decision to give me a C - section...I got to theatre and the gave me the spinal block but it only worked down the left side of my body so I had to be put to sleep...My little girl was born 1.15am Sunday morning 10th October 2010 her weight was 9lb9oz and she got to be with her daddy the first 2 hrs of her life as I was out for the count, when I came around I saw my beautiful angel for the first time and fell in love all over again she is perfection

Sep 27, 2009 - 3 comments

Well its been 8 days since I had my miscarriage and im starting to feel a bit more normal after being in a zombie state all week, I stayed in bed for 3 days solid and couldnt even bring myself to eat, but I had a break through and told myself I have my two beautiful little girls and need to look after them they need me to be strong not a total wreck, so here I am up out of bed washed and dressed and fed just took my little girls for a play in the park and I am finally feeling a bit more like me x
