My husband and I tried for 7 years to have children .so the birth if our 1st was very exciting.

My water broke at 6 am in the morning and although I should have been a little scared I was so excited.

We made our way to the hospital. I thought this was it that in a couple if hours I would be holding my baby boy.

Then the nurse told me to go home try to get some sleep and come back later when my contractions were stronger.

Trying to get sleep while your in labour in impossible.

Then at 5pm I felt I could no longer deal with the pain and made my way back to the hospital.

It wasn’t until 1pm that I was able to push. I felt like eternity .after one long hour of pushing I was taken to surgery to do a ceserian . About 10 minutes later my beautiful baby was born. And it was the best feeling in the world.

  • Hope you are having wonderful time with your little one. Just like you we had our first one after 7 years of trying. I called in and they told me to take a Panadol and get some sleep as it was my first one and will be long before I give birth! My baby girl was born an hour after this happened! Totally 2 1/2 hour! I almost didn’t make to the hospital.


  • Seems to happen a lot, they send you home and then bam, bub is ready.


  • i hate when they tell you to get rest and come back in when it really starts to hurt! i think i know my body pretty well so they will just a call from hubby saying that we are on the way instead!. my last labour, i barely made a sound (natural and no pain relief) and the midwife didn’t believe me when i told her that the baby was crowning so i said a naughty word and grunted as i had the urge to push and she checked and basically had to catch a baby!
