had my baby girl!!

Hi all, just thought i let u know i had my baby girl last thursday!!
i came home from hospital sunday afternoon after a scary birth!
I went into labour tuesday so went threw to hospital and spent the night in the relaxation room, but i was only 2cm dialated and wasnt showing any signs of progression, so went home wednesday.
Around 5p.m same day my contractions got stronger, i sat them out until they were coming very hard and fast, about 4 every 10 mins. so went back threw to hospital and was put in to labour room. i went on gas and air until i was 8cm dialated then had pethadin.
They was monitoring me and baby as i had c-section with 1st baby and babys heart rate was droping! they took some blood from her head and tested it to find she was lacking oxygen! so they told me i had to have a c-section to get baby out a.s.a.p!!!
By this time i was out of it on drugs.
the next thing i know i was waking up in a room with 2 nurses, My partner told me they had to ressusatate (cant spell it!!) baby as she was not breathing! She spent the next 2 days in intensive care hooked up to wires and tubes threw her nose! Very scary
but she has now made a full recovery and looks to be no long term damage.
And now i have a beautifull baby girl and so proud of her for being so strong and pulling threw this.
