on the 15/12/07 i had a normal day went to my mums then home and had dinner and sat in front of the telly for a bit, I got really sleepy so i had a sleep about 2hrs later i woke up to my phone ringing it was my mate asking how i was doing as my due day was on 13/12. after about ten minutes i had to go to the toilet really bad, so i hung up and went and as i wipe my self i had my show and looked at the time it was 10;30pm so i went to my mums as it was 5 minutes walk from me and told her as i was feeling ok she told me to go home and get some sleep as it could start any time soon. I went home and went to bed at 3;30am i woke to really bad pains , they was about 15 minutes apart so i got up and made a hot water bottle and sat on my sofa trying to relax, after having contractions for 12hrs and nothing happening i went to the hospital and they said im not ready yet so go home and if the contractions get to bad have a nice warm bath. so i went back to my mums and i most of had 5 baths. Everyone was going to bed as it was really late i tired but couldn't get any sleep and at 3;30am on the 17/12 i phoned the hospital and got told to come in as my contractions was 5 minutes apart.. I was told by the midwife that my waters had not broke so they tired to break them but they couldn't so i got put on monitors and got put on a drip to help speed things up after trying for the 5 time to break my waters they said that my waters must have broke already. i tired for two hours to push my baby out but he didn't move as he was facing my back when he was meant to face my belly. then they said he was in distress and they would take me in to theater and try venter hose which hurt and didn't work so i had to have a emergency c-section when they finally delivered my little boy, the surgeon said that my waters had gone days a go and that he was over due and if they had waited any longer he would not of made it..When my mum saw him his hands and feet were blue for lack of oxygen and his skin was all flaky where he was over due.. and after all that no one came to take to me about the birth and i got post natal depression as a result of everything that happened...I am fine now and have a little girl who is 6 months old my little boy is 2 on the 18/12 and there is not one single thing wrong with him..
