And another new baby boy!

Postby elaruu » 16 Dec 2013, 08:36

Hi! Just coming on to announce that my third baby boy has FINALLY arrived safe and well at 1:35pm today (Aussie time!). Not so little Mitchell weighs 9lb12 and is 55.5cm long. Almost a kilo heavier than his brothers were, which is not overly surprising since he had about 3 weeks more cooking time than them!

I was booked in to be induced yesterday due to a few episodes of high blood pressure, but I managed to get out of that, as the drs agreed that it really wasn't that high and was up and down. They said I could wait a while longer and let them know when I wanted it. Had strong but not painful contractions all day yesterday but they all stopped when I lay down and absolutely nothing overnight. This had been happening on and off for weeks and was driving me insane so this morning I decided enough was enough and made the call. I was thinking tue or wed to give myself a bit more time but they were too busy, so had to be today!

Went into a panic, but in I went. DP dropped me off. Plan was to break waters and wait a couple of hours to kick off before starting drip. Unfortunately there was meconium in the waters so drip was started right away, meaning monitoring on the bed the whole time :(. Drip started at 12:30, first painful contraction at about 12:55, and out he came at 1:35 after about 10 mins of pushing! DP arrived just as I was starting to push as I only called babysitter to come when the drip was started. Phew!

He's very chubby and smooshable and feeding well. Doesn't much like being put down but that's fine with me! I feel a bit like I cheated, getting induced but I'm glad I did really, due to the meconium. And I think he was ready. I was already about 5cm dilated when waters were broken.
