ive had my baby further update
well just come home from hospital after having my little girl. dd born on 30/10/08 at 32wks + 5 days and is doing really well bless her.
my waters went at 6.30 pm on thursday so went straight to maternity. when i got there had to wait while they did a shift change over but i started to get some pains at 7.05pm. by the time they examined me at 7.20 i was already 3cm baby was on her way and it ws too late to stop her coming. took me down to delivery by 8pm. had steriod injection to help lo's lungs incase at 9.20. by 9.30 i was 9cm and was wanting to push but had to wait for the last cm.
by 10pm i was pushing. lo was coming out at a funny angle so it took longer to push her out but she was born at 23.19 (yes it is like having the worlds biggest poo). i had a small tear but didnt need stitches, just stings when you have a wee for the first day or so.
she came out crying so i was able to have a quick hold before they took her to special care.
she is doing really well, she didnt need any help breathing, is feeding well through a feeding tube at the moment but is having 22mls every 2 hours and is still looking for food. she was moved into a side room yesterday afternoon as she doesnt need intensive care.
it all happened so fast still seems really strange.
first time mums dont worry about labour it was fine take plenty of gas and air cos its fab (5 good puffs feels like youve had a bottle of vodka :lol
will add some pics later when i sort them out.
she has now had her canular (sp) removed from her hand so she looks so much more comfy, which means that she doesnt need to go back on the drip. she is now having 22mls of milk every 2 hours, she even had one feed from a bottle earlier today and apparently 'drained it like a sump and was looking for more'.
not sure when she can come home but hopefully wont be long.
well lo is doing really well, she has been moved out of the incubator and is now in a cot. she is wearing clothes and is now taking some of her feeds from a bottle. she is coming on really well. hopefully it wont be long til we can bring her home.
