Miss Freya was born at 7.45pm on the 14.12.11 just one day past her due date. She was 9lb Apologies for the ridiculously long story - want to remember every moment! So having been waddling all weekend with her so low, Monday came and around 3pm contractions started every 10mins. I didn't believe it though as had had plenty of false starts already. Did howevet start losing loads of mucus too all hoped I'd have a due date baby. Anyway tried to go to sleep at 10ish but too uncomfortable so Hubby and I moved down to the lounge. Setting up camp on the sofa and watching bourne! O tried to snooze between contractions but in the early hours rhey became every 2/3 mins so thought we should go in. (both v excited at this point that we were on track for due date. Anyway get to hosp to be told its early labour you're 2cms, it could be come time. So manage 4 hrs interrupted sleep! Tuesday oh stayed off work and we just mooched about at home with my mum. I decided stuff needed to move on as were going to miss due date so I was bouncing etc and then Hubby and I took the dog out for a walk, me having to stop and have contractions every 7mins or so. Decided to have a hot clary sage bath to help ease things A friend then popped by in the evening and I kept having to leave the room to go to the loo with each contraction and was generally in tootoo much pain for small talk - she got the message and left around 7pm. Tried to go to bed again but was writhing around in agony so thought I'd leave hubby to sleep and go and watch more tv. In too much pain, paracetomol not cutting it I begged oh to go back in at 11ish tues evening. Spoke to mw on phone who said they'd give me psin relief in ordet thay i coyld sleep as I was already over 30hrs in and knackered and couldn't bear the thought of days more They checked me '3cms. Best place for you is at home, try paracetomol and a bath' I could of punched her! I said what do you think I've been doing for the past 30hrs!
