Whoa finally got home... such a long story here goes:

Went in at 10am to get induced, they broke my waters and we waited a while, had a few contractions but nothing realy happened so at about 5 pm they gave me the drip.

Started contracting nicely and relaxed for a bit in a rocking chair. Got up to use the loo at about 7, and as soon as I'd done the the contractions just kept coming thick and fast. I was examined and was told I was 5 cms. The midwife seemed really surprised how quick and strong the contractions were coming and I asked for an epidural at about 8.15

I was told the epidural would be 15 minutes so we waited and waited and then found out the woman was delayed so wouldn't be down yet to do it. I asked for the meptid, which I got at about 8.30.

I kept saying I wanted to push, but the midwife kept telling me the I wasn't far enough along, but I could try it if I wanted to.
A couple of contractions later and the baby's head began to crown!! I'd gone from 5 cms to 10 in about 40 minutes! The midwife was amazed!!
He was out in 2 pushes, at 8.54pm.... I couldn't believe it!

He was 8lb 2oz (we did know it was a boy hubby presumed you all knew, I think some of you did and some of you didn't!)

We settled down a bit and I was just looking forward to having a bath and going up to the ward when they examined me and said I'd got a third degree tear and would have to go into theatre (ouch!)

I needed a spinal, and was in theatre for about an hour, which was not painful, but not an experience I'd like to go through again.
Then, at 2am I was finally taken up to the ward.

I had to stay in for 2 nights, which I was really gutted about, they wanted me to stay in tonight aswell, but I really begged them to let me go, so they did in the end. Got home at about 7.30pm

Here's some pics!
