Happy Birthday Sweet Girl
Miss Mahli is 4, FOUR!!! Where has the time gone?
I remember going to the hospital to spend the night as my blood pressure was playing up, they told me I would most likely be induced in the morning, but not to early so they told B not to rush in. They gave me a tablet to help me sleep and that was it. After I restless night, the midwife came it at 6am and told me that my OB was here to induce me. So much for B not having to rush in.
Anyway, they didn't actually break my waters until just after 7am and then they put the drip in and left me to it. B arrived just after 8 and proceeded to watch Sunrise while relaxing in his recliner, not believing me that I was in so much pain. At around 930 I sent him for the camera and told him she wouldn't be far off. No-one seemed to believe me. They all assured me it would be hours yet, my contractions weren't showing up that strong on the CTG. You see I had to be monitored the whole time since I was attempting a VBAC. I remember being along in the delivery suite and the only way to deal with the pain was through making noise... I don't know why, but my pain relief method is, well it isn't exactly screaming, but it is making a loud noise, but NOT a scream.
B comes back and tells me that he can here me on the ward and I tell him, that frankly, I don't give a damn. I am in pain and no one believes that the baby is coming soon. The midwife comes back and agrees to check me out. The look on her face was priceless, she paged my OB right away. He strolled in 5 minutes later to watch the midwife deliver Miss Mahli at 10:10 am on January 31st 2008, just under 2 weeks early.
I can not believe that it was four years ago!
So, happy 4th birthday sweet girl. We love you to the moon and back
