firstly congrates to everyone that has had their bubs smile]
my little guys arrived on oct 1st. Corban Robert was born at 4.30am weighing 5lb 1oz and Tyler Charles was born at 4.55am weighing 5lb 12oz. they were almost 4 weeks early (i was 36+2)
i had absolutly no sign at all that i was going to go into labour til i had my first contraction at 5pm on the 30th. they were irregular and short til about 6.30pm when they switched to being every 4 mins lasting 30-40sec.
went to the hospital at 8pm were the dr examined me. i wasnt even dialted so i hopped in the birth pool for a while. dr examined me again at about 9.30, still wasnt dialated so i dozed off for a bit. dr did another exam at about 11 and i was 4cms.
i asked for an epi then as i was getting intense back and kidney pain that felt worse with each contraction (turns out it was because tyler was literally doing flips - i was getting scanned every couple of hours and he was always in adifferent postion).
the epi made it possible for me to relax and sleep and when they did another exam at about 2.30-3am i was fully dialted and corban was here at 4.30, tyler at 4.55 and their placentas at 4.58 so all up my labour was 12 hours start to finish.
the boys were a little jaundiced so we had to stay in hosptial til yesterday but they are both doing really well and OMG the feel so tiny lol i have posted some pics on facebook
good luck to everyone still waiting smile] hopefully you wont have to wait long
eta they both had to be delivered with suction as corbans heart rate dropped a bit to low and tyler just didnt want to come out lol and i only had some slight grazing so no stiches this time lol
