    I started feeling odd around 10pm on 5th of December (my offical DD) I was on here and felt diffrent but just thought it was my mind because I wanted him here so much. Anyway at arounf 1am I started having pains every 15 mins but just kept going for a wee and trying to have a poo (sorry - tmi) the pains continued throughout the night and next day (Tuesday 6th) and I just carried on as normal, went to the shops etc and had to keep stopping wtih every pain was worried I was gonna give birth in taxi as my fella was at work. Got home and felt a little better, hadnt eaten since Monday but was in pain I really couldnt eat. I rang labour ward who just kept fobbing me off. I kept speaking to my Parents who told me to ring labour ward again and then fobbed me off again. My Dad then rang angey they kept just ignoring me basicly. I've had about 70 baths by this point the pains continued and got worse on Tues night-Wed day and eveyone was telling me to go hospital but I didnt. Wed night I was screaming the house down, scared and not knowing what to do but I was pushing and trying to poo. I was biting into the couch. I spoke to my Mum who rang me to see how I was who then rang an amulance. I could hardly speak and couldnt be bothered to speak tbh. I got to hospital at 10am on Thursday the 8th and she told me I was 10cm. Shocked but didnt have time to be cos I had to start pushing with no drugs even though I kept saying I wanted them but I was to late, was pushing for an hour and a half and they told me if I didnt get him out soon they would have to get a doctor to help me and if that didnt work it would be an emergency c section. Anyway after a bit longer I was took to theatre, thry gave me some anasthetic and they cut me down below and tried forceps and suction :( I still had to push but didnt know I was it was a very weird feeling. That didnt work as he was spine to spine so they told me I'd have to have a c section... gutted. The doctor sprayed some cold water on my hand and then on my tummy to check it was numb so they could do what they needed to do. After 5 mins my baby boy was here... his head was a mess and cut and bruised from the forceps and suction. He was badly jaundice and we was in hospital for 5 days as he was on antibiotics for his head and photo therapy and onvbviously I didnt have a normal birth or the usual c section. I dont care now it was all worth it, the pain without pain relif wasnt as bad as i'd expected obviouisly as I didnt know I was in labour... Sorry its not the greatest write up. I'm pretty shit writing things down.
