^hello^ guys!!

Well I came home at 7.30 tonight and thought I would pop on to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful wishes for us all and to tell you my birth story while we have a few quiet moments  ;D Here goes.........................................

Friday 3rd dec 6pm I decided to have a bath before our friends came round for our friday night takeaway and "Max & Paddy's road to nowhere"!!!!!!!! Anyway....... whilst I was in the bath I had a strange pain in my tummy but put it down to the fact I was washing my feet and bump got in the way so I had squashed it a little and it felt uncomfortable! A few minutes after I felt a slight 'trickle' down below  ;) but dint really think anything of it UNTIL I got out of the bath and the trickle carried on  :eek: and then went to the loo to discover a mucussy type discharge (clear) was the offending item! I put a pad on and decided to keep an eye on things!

About 6.30 I started with pains in my tummy but they weren't too bad and I dint time them to any degree! Our friends arrived at 7 ish and we all decided what we were going to have to eat and ordered it for Nay and Andy to go and pick it up. About 8 ish (after the lads went for food) the pains were starting to get more painful and regular (between 5 and 8 mins varying) so my friend Gemma put my TENS machine pads on to see if it would help. It did PHEW!!!

8.30... food arrives so inbetween contractions I ate my fried chicken and chips (well to a degree anyway) and start writing down the timings (3 -5 mins)  :eek:

9.30... Max & Paddy!! Giggled a lot  ;D Panted a lot  ;D

Anyway I am waffling, our friends left at about 11.30 ish and the times were now at 3 mins, some even 2 but then they were going back to 5-6 too (confusing) and the mucus was now strained with blood.

12.30... decides to phone the hossie, explained my night and they felt that I  should go in to be examined to see what was happening. So here goes the hossie story..................

1.30 arrived at hossie, examined and told I was 3cm dilated  :eek: and told I would not be going home and I was in labour  :p Although they said my waters hadn't acutally gone, well til the midwife took her fingers out of my wotsit and there the waters went ;D  Off we go..............

3 -4 am ish, examined again and was 5 cm but they pain was excrutiating and was offered gas and air, which I took!! (WOAH!! How weird did I feel!!) 

6 am examined again and was 8 cm dilated then offered pethidine at 6.30 (which dint help in my opinion) by 8 am I was 8 and 1/2 to 9 cm but I had had enough and asked for an epidural but I had to wait til 9 am for the anaesthestist to come down and sort me out.

9.30 am epidural in and working, 10 am examined again still same dilation and frequency of contractions was starting to die off so they checked babys heartrate and it was slightly down. They attached a wire  to Zak's head to monitor his heart rate and it dint drop anymore but continued to stay quite low so basically they decided that I may as well have a c-section as baby wasn't comfy.

11 am wheeled down to theatre to prepare for a epidural top up to have my baby! Nay got changed and I met him in there.

Zak Jamie (Jamie is after Nay's older brother who passed away during labour) Wigfield was born at 12.07pm weighing 6lbs 7oz!!! Nay watched as Zak was pulled out of my tummy, he loved it!! WE both ended up in tears as the midwife told us "ITS A BOY!!" It was the most wonderful day of our lives.

We just wanna say.......................

THANK YOU ZAK FOR BEING HERE AND MAKING US SO PROUD!! WE WILL TRY TO BE THE BEST MOMMY & DADDY TO YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. WE BOTH LOVE YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH DARLING!

Thanx for reading this, hopefully this brings hope to everyone and look forward to reading your own birth stories in the near future. ^fairydust^

Shezza, Nay & Zak  ^monkey^
