    Hi ladies just to let you all know that my little girl arrived on the 24th october at 11.08pm and she weighed in at 7lb 8 1/2oz !!!!
    Just a bit of advice i had an epidural and honestly it was brilliant i couldn't of wished for a better pain relief. I had gas and air from when i was one centimetre to 3 and all it did for me was knock me out and make me sleepy. The epidural did take my pain away but i could feel tighenings just like braxton hicks so you can still feel the contractions which is nice. The baby did start to get distressed so she had to have a blood test taken from the top of her head which i didn't like the idea of but it had to be done but looking at her you can't even tell that she had it done. I ended up having a forceps delivery which was uncomfortable but not painful. The only problems i had were that she gave me a third degree tear and the placenta wouldn't come away so i had to be taken to theatre to be sorted out. The tear was sore and uncomfortable and still is slightly but it is bearable. I can honestly say that being a mum is the best thing in the world and you couldn't wish for anything more. I wanted to write this post for you all so that you know it isn't all that bad !!!! hope that this is a good account of what it was like and as i know how i felt in the last few months wondering what it was like please feel free to mail me.
    I hope you are all having good pregnanices

    lucy and baby liberty 1 week old today !!!!!
