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
