In the early hours of Thursday morning my mucous plug
Started to slip out. When I got to the doctor my cervix
Was starting to open. I was admitted to hospital immediately
And given progesterone set pills to try and keep cervix closed.
Unfortunately 2hours later my waters broke and soon after
I got contractions. I was put on drip to try and stop it.
Four hours later it was back and man was it back!
They checked and I was 1cm dialited. I got pethidine which
It was imminent baby is comming. I had mayor contractions
Non stop without breaks which worried the dr and I got
Rushed to the theatre for c-section.
After I got the spinal block it was amazing hehe all the pain melted
Our little boy was born 21:19 at only 32weeks and he is doing
Fine under circumstances. He weighed a nice 2.05kg
He is in Nciu and will most probably only get to come home
At 36 weeks which is sad as I will be discharged on Sunday.
I will keep following our group to see how you all keeping up!
Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts
May you all have happy healthy full term and thank you for
All the support!
That must have been very scary!! I'm so sorry that things didn't go as planned but just very happy that your little chap and you are doing ok!!
It just shows again that these things are so unpredictable!!
Wishing you all the best and hope your stay in NICU will be short and quickly forgotten.
I've been to Dr yesterday and it is becoming very difficult to measure their weights since they are a bit crammed. He did however measured the bloodflow through the umbilical cord and that seems to be fine. My servix however is starting to thin out so he suggest I take things really easy from now on - takeaways on the menu
I'm really trying to keep them in as long as we can (as if I can do anything). They are suppose to come around 8 Dec but Dr think it will be sooner!!
Liefie how are you doing?? Thinking of you a lot. If you have a spare moment please update and let us know how your little guy is doing and how you are feeling after the c-sec!!! I'm still quite scared for that!!!
Luckily our bags were packed, right???
Just checking in, just reached 31 weeks and gosh and I starting to feel exhausted, 4 weeks left of work and I am hoping they fly by.
Liefie, hope you and little one are doing good, seems these little ones are really eager to make their entry.
Waiting patiently for my check up next week (28th) to see if all is in order with my little guy, although I am sure he is in position by now as I have this constant "heavy" feeling down there and back ache starting to come more often. Just excited about meeting him.
Hi all, haven't chatted for long but I have been reading the updates regularly.
Wow liefie cant believe your baby is here already!! Glad that you two are doing well. Im 32wks this wk and can also feel that I have reached the end of my energy levels and patience..i finished work today and can now sort out the baby clothes, room, bags, etc(haven't done anything yet, yikes!!)...
Ceaser is scheduled for 16 Dec but I honestly don't know if I will make it until then, so tired and with a little 3yr old still keeping me busy I don't have much time to rest.
But yes, just counting down the weeks now..just November to go then we are done!! yeaahhh...Good luck for the last stretch.
I actually belong to the January group but saw you posting here about Hypnobirthing. We are also doing it, are you doing a home birth or hospital. And are you making use of a midwife or gynae? Would be nice to know from someone else doing it as well.
We are doing hospital birth and still deciding on the Midwife or gynae as I am moving hospitals and my gynae don't travel to the hospital I chose if you are having a natural birth. Decisions decisions.
