Sorry for delete in post, the thread went crazy on me. Heres the birth story. Also reposted.
On Sunday 3rd June, at 8pm we welcomed into the world Felicity Rose Carter. Weighing a whooping 8lb 8oz.
The birth and labour was amazing, I would not hesitate to do it all again.
My waters went on Saturday night at 11.30pm but I had no contractions until mid-day on Sunday. From the start of regular contractions the total labour time was 6hours. I had no pain relief and used everything that I had learnt in my natural birthing classes. I did try and use a tens machine but once they contractions stepped up a gear it was horrible and it had to take it off. So it was au natural with the breathing. The midwife's arrived at our house at 6pm and I was fully dilated and they didn't know whether we would have time to get the pool up however we managed it and I completed it in the pool spending the last half hour/40minutes in it - Felicity is a true water baby. It was such an amazing experience, I definitely do it again. Hubby was amazing throughout the whole thing.
All three of us are doing fine. It seems like a dream and that I'm going to wake up and still be pregnant. The whole labour/birthing experience has been amazing from the atmosphere we created at home to the midwife's that attended Felicity's birth.
I am one truly happy MUMMY. hehe.
Good Luck to all the mummies expecting their little ones this month.
Ah sounds perfect - so pleased you had the birth you wanted - gives hope for other first timers with it being quick! xxxx
