    WOWOW YOU LOT BEEN BUSY POSTING WHILE I BEEN AWAY LOL

    any ways its saturday 4.14 and i just got home with an extra memeber of the family....

    i went into hossy for 2.30 induction to find out i have been in labour for a while apparently... 4-5cm dilated :shock: so they said they wud break my waters and labour shud start :D

    but baby had other ideas.... she had poo'd inside me when they broke my waters.. common for over due babies so wasnt too bothered.. then we were told to go for a long walk... still nothing...

    then after about 4/5 hours still having them irregular contractions but nothing painful. they said i had to go to delievery suite and have the drip :cry: they started that.. upping the dose every 1/2 hour until i was on 36ml per hour (started on 1ml) having contractions but still not dilating .. then got a contraction and it wudn't go away lol that was painful so i demanded an epidural (gas and air made me feel so sick and dizzy, gave up after 2 attempts with that).

    they reduced my dose of the drip back down until i was having regular contractions and left me to sleep for 5 hours and wud then review me.

    doozed on and off for a while.. (epidurals are amazing once in.. had trouble with that too. coz my back wud not numb for them to put it in OUCH!!!!)..

    then dr reviewed me after 16 hours of labour i was still at 4/5cm.. and baby had gone back to back... so only thing left was a c-section :x

    the last thing i wanted but... but at the time felt like a blessing.... then at 7.55am thursday baby ALana Lenci was born... cleaned up.. stomach pumped from the meconium and she was fit and well, just needed 24 hours of observation. daddy was getting cuddles then....

    i stopped breathing coz the spinal block had gone to high and i had no feeling in my lungs :cry: and then started having a shaking fit.. BP dropped and pulse starting racing.... sorted me out and i was in recovery until 1am the next day...

    caught an infection from bubas meconium. put on IV anitbiotics... then this morning all was back to normal and said i did not look like a person who just had a c section and said i can go home.. so here i am lol

    and this is the little buggar who caused all the trouble:
