Partridge BS: When We Were Pregnant (87* d) RE: BS: When We Were Pregnant 16 Jul 07

Where to begin.......... I have had five children.
My first was daughter Jennifer, it was a bit of a shock. I read everything I could about childbirth, but it did not prepare me for the real thing. One of the most embarassing things was the nurse that had to shave my nether regions was a girl I went to school with.
Jenny was 17 days overdue, so I was induced. My doctor put my legs up in stirrups and then disappeared leaving the door wide open - leaving all and sundry to see me in this vunrable state My husbands uncle who was an electrian popped in to say hello!

the labour went on for 12 hours - I went to the national chilbirth classes so the breathing techniques helped me manage the pain. They kept telling me that I was having asmall baby and that i had lots of water - it turned out that the baby was big (7.11)

She was born at silly o'clock in the early hours of the morning - they gave me an episiotomy and I had had to have several pints of blood as I bled alot,

I remember the pushing bit - very strange, there is no way you cannot push, you just have to do it.
