Ok, Im not sure if there is one already made for this, but I think it would be nice to share our birthing stories!
I cant remember alot of what happend because I had a horrible reaction to a shot of pethodine...
I remember it was about 10:15pm Thursday night, my fiance and I was sitting on the couch watching Lost, I got up to get something to munch on and when I sat back down I felt myself wee a little I was like omg wth. I didnt say anything and when lost finnished Leigh went upstairs to go to bed while I stayed downstairs because I wanted to go to the toilet (to see wtf was going on) Anyway I got as far as the laundry and my waters broke all over the place! I screamed at Leigh (my finace) to come down right now and he was like wtf do you want? I want to go to bed so I replied "either i just wet myself of my waters have broken." After the inital shock of what i said he was like omg are you serious? and I was like uh yeah and then i started crying and shaking because I didnt know what to do. We rang the hospital to ask them and they said to come in once the contractions start getting to much to bare. I rang my mum to tell her what was happening and she said she would meet us at the hospital. i think it was about 2 hours later we left to go to the hospital. Nothing much really happend for awhile, I was getting regular contraction which slowly built up. I dont know how long I lasted for but I ended up giving into my "no drug birth" and having a shot of pethodine. Boy oh boy did that mess my head up! I felt like I was on a baaaaad drug trip. People would be talking to me and either I couldnt hear what they were saying or I couldnt understand, it was all just gibberish. After that started wearing off the contractions started getting really full on and painful again and I was not dealing with it very well. I think quite a few hours had past at this point. I ended up getting an epidural. They hooked me up, turned the thing on. and before it had time to start working its magic it was time for me to push. I dont know how long I was doing that for but my son Malakai Ray Scott was born at 8:24pm Friday the 13th of April @ 34weeks. he weighed about 5lb something 17.7 In.
