May 02, 2011 - 0 comments

Well I went to have a scan on the 20th April cause the doctor on the Friday before was worried cause i was measuring 3 weeks behind when she measured me for my 38 week check up. any way so i went for the scan and on ultrasound Blayde was measuring 35 weeks instead of 38 weeks so the hospital ob checked me and i was already 1 cm dilated.. so she said be here at 7am the next morning.. so on the 21st up at 4 am to be at the hospital by 7 and had to drop Jhett off at a friends place to look after him, while bub was born, arrived at the hospital at 7am had to wait an hour for a room to become available and then was put on a ctg machine to monitor bubs heart rate.. something i had to be on a weekly basis due to the gestational diabetes any way after that they put the Prostin pessary in and then i was moved back to the maternity ward until i started contracting, so i went and had a sleep and just as lunch arrived my contractions started, nothing too bad very mild so i ate lunch well then they became a bit more intense and i asked for a heat pack and then they started coming 3 mins apart and it was all back labour so then dh called for the nurse and we walked to the birth suite well then i had to check blood sugar levels as they wanted to make sure they weren't elevated, then they did an internal and i was at 5 cms so i asked for an epi as week as i am well i didn't end up having one cause no more than 10 mins later he was here.. i had some whoop arse contractions and his head was coming out, I also had a student in the room and she went and got the midwife telling her there is a head and the midwife going it's too soon and she is going well there is a head of hair there so the midwife came in and no more that 3 pushes my little man entered the world at 2.44pm weighing 6lbs 2 oz, and 48cms long, my little bundle was an express delivery as once the contractions started he was here within 2 hrs

Well bubs seems to have a "bright spot" on his heart, we are not worried as it was the only thing found, but are going to have a cardio ultrasound on bubs set for the 11th jan as i have to be around 24 weeks to have this done. even thought the my ob wasn't worried or even the ob at the hospital we just want to make sure everything is going alright with mr. These days he is moving around heaps and i'm loving the feeling when he does
