OMG...I've only gone and had a baby!!!!!! Now with pic's

Bloomin nora what a bonkers day I've had....

After having a lovely birthday yesterday hubby and I were snuggled in bed watching tv and at 11.50pm I felt a massive pop inside and my waters broke...phoned hospital and they said to come in for a check but to expect to be sent home until labour gets established...I was 37+1...

ten minutes later my contractions started, 1 minute apart and lasting 30 seconds....hubby dropped off
lo and we got to hospital at 12.50am, I was in agony and quite freaked out by the intensity of the contractions...

I was taken to a delivery room and I had some faffy student midwife who wasn't listening to me and was fluffing about with stoopid monitor, I told her I needed to push and I so got the look which was, oh please you've only been having contractions for an hour....

Well after finally agreeing to examine me as the senior midwife came in I was told I was 4 cms....I wanted to cry and then I lost control of my body and it started pushing on its own, the senior midwife examined me and said I was only 4 cm...then her face dropped as she said the head was pushing on her hand and I had gone from 4cm to 10cm in a matter of seconds, 3 pushes later and a mad frenzy of midwives running around at 1.31am our son Daniel James arrived kicking and screaming into our world....weighing 8lbs and 1 oz (not bad for 3 weeks early)

My labour lasted just 1 hr and 30 mins and we only got to the hospital 40 mins before I delivered him....

By 11.30 this morning we had been dishcharged, picked our daughter up and headed home...

I am exhausted, sore from tearing and stitches but I am absolutely besotted and in love with our new son and after 2 years ttc and 2 m/c feel like I've come to the end of an emotional rollercoaster....
