The birth story of Oscar 

Baby Oscar is now a week old. I can't believe it – where has that week gone? I thought it was about time I shared my birth story. It's such a different story to my one with Zach which was a planned csection due to him being breech! I had been wishing to get a vbac birth this time and that wish came true. So here goes! 

Thursday 15th was my due date. I hadn't been feeling any signs that baby was going to come and I was convinced that he was going to make me wait and keep me wondering whether I was going to end up with another csection since I didn't want to be induced.  I couldn't have been more wrong! 

Everything started out as normal – I dropped Zach off at nursery, went back home, hoovered, cleaned out the stinky green (food waste) wheelie bin and sat down at my laptop to do a spot of blogging which was basically me writing my 40 week update, convinced that I'd be seeing the midwife the next day which would be included in the update. 

It got to lunchtime and I started to feel some twinges that were like light period pains. I had myself some lunch of marmite crumpets and chocolate milkshake and the twinges continued. The other half called me from work and I told him that I was having 'feelings' but that it was probably nothing. 

Over the course of the next couple of hours the pains were getting stronger, moving from the feeling of light period pains to heavy ones. I also went to the toilet and there was a tiny bit of pink in my discharge which I thought may be me starting to lose my plug. I was timing the pains on an app and they seemed to be around 15 minutes apart although every now and then there'd be a random one which would mix things up a bit! I phoned the other half to tell him that it was getting stronger and then called my mum to let her know in case I needed her to get Zach from nursery. 

At just after 4pm, with me having to now breathe through the pain and the minutes between each one getting significantly lesser, I had finally convinced myself that these were contractions and that it may be happening. I called the other half and told him that it might be worth coming home and I called my mum to ask her to pick Zach up from nursery. I then called my sister so she was in the loop and as by this point I was a little bit scared since I was home on my own, she really helped to calm me down telling me to phone the hospital and to keep breathing!

At 5.30 my mum arrived back with Zach and then at 6 the other half arrived home.  We decided that seeing as I was having what were now obvious contractions, it would be best for mum to take Zach to hers for the night. By this point, my contractions were about 6-7 minutes apart and growing with intensity but when I'd earlier phoned the hospital, they'd said they didn't want to see me until they were 3 minutes apart for 2 hours! So there was me thinking that I had ages ahead of me. I popped my Tens machine on (which I had tested the night before!) and sat on my birthing ball.

With Zach gone to his nannie's, I got the other half to phone the local cab company to make sure that they would take me to the hospital and was relieved when they said yes! We then decided to have some dinner so he cooked pie and mash while I was in the front room on my birthing ball dealing with the contractions. They were down to about 5 minutes apart by the time dinner was on the table! I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner but then it all happened.  The contractions upped their game and suddenly I had 3 really strong ones within the space of a few minutes!! I also mentioned on a Facebook group that I could feel a lot of pressure on my bum and they told me I needed to get to hospital. The other half was a bit apprehensive because of what the hospital said earlier but I was now really scared so I made him phone them. They asked the usual questions and when they I answered yes to the pressure on the bum one, they told me to go in. Contractions were coming thick and fast now! 

The other half asked how I wanted to get to hospital and phoned my sister to see if she was around but with her being a good 25 minute drive away, I told him I wanted a cab and I wanted it now! So he quickly got me a cab, told them the situation and there was one with us in minutes. Thankfully he was the best cab driver ever and had been in that situation several times. He drove at speed up the country road and got us to the hospital in about 15 minutes, with me having contractions all the way. When I got out of the car I had another massive one and had to lean against a lamppost.  A woman who had just finished her shift came running from a car asking if I wanted her to go in and get me a wheelchair but the contraction subsided and I walked into the hospital. We were buzzed into the labour ward when another massive contraction got me and I was screaming in the corridor. Some midwives came round the corner and immediately knew who I was from the earlier phone calls. They whisked a wheelchair out which was really uncomfortable to sit in, and wheeled me into the assessment room. 

When I got in the room, I stood up against the bed for another contraction. They asked me what I was feeling and I told them I needed to push. They told me not to until they'd assessed me so as soon as that contraction was over, they had a feel and were shocked to find that I was fully dilated and ready to go! So on the next contraction I was allowed to push.  They asked me if I wanted them to move me to a delivery room and I said I didn't care, I just needed to get baby out! So in between the next two contractions they moved me, popped my feet onto the stirrups and it was all hands on deck. 

They told me that baby was desperate to get out and that I needed to get on with the job in hand as baby was in a bit of distress. Because I hadn't had a wee for a couple of hours, they had to use an in out catheter to get rid of my urine. Then on the next push my waters exploded! Like proper exploded – I heard the pop and the gasps! 

I continued to push with every contraction but it was exhausting and I was struggling because they were so regular. I said at one point that I couldn't do it, I didn't have the strength. They all said I could do it and that I needed to because baby had had a poo. Suddenly I knew that I had to get this baby out.

The registrar tried to use the suction cup to help which was absolute bloody agony and didn't work! They then decided that I needed an episiotomy and forceps to help get baby out. His head was there but it couldn't get through and so with a tiny little bit of help, on the next push his head came and on the next one the rest of him came. It wasn't until afterwards that I even knew I had been cut or that they'd had to use forceps – I had at that point of pushing, gone off to some other world!! 

It turned out that baby had his head the wrong way and was facing upwards rather than sideways which according to the registrar, is the hardest birth to get through and that I did really bloody good to get him out on gas and air! 

The timeframe between my waters breaking and baby being delivered was 22 whole minutes and he arrived at 22.39. He was delivered straight onto my tummy so we had instant skin to skin which was just beautiful because I didn't get that with Zach. It was such an emotional moment and one of massive relief. It's such a different feeling to a csection. No less emotional, no less relief, just a bit different! 

img-20160922-wa0003.jpg

They then cut the chord and whisked him to the side and I realised I hadn't heard him cry so immediately panicked. Then a few seconds later he cried and it was so relieving. They passed him back to me and I sat cuddling him while the placenta was delivered (I took the injection), and then it was time to stitch me up so they took him away to weigh and do whatever else they needed to do. 

The stitching up was agonising.  It was more painful than the ruddy birth and I was breathing heavily on the gas and air. The registrar could see that I was in agony and offered to take me to theatre for a spinal but I very kindly refused and told him to just keep going.  There was no way I was managing a natural labour and then going into theatre for the stitches. No way! He took absolutely ages to stitch me up because he wanted to get it perfect! I was very grateful but god it hurt! Once he was done, the midwives cleaned me up and then left us to recover a bit. They needed to monitor me because of the poo and also because I had lost more blood from the episiotomy than I should have done and they needed to make sure that I didn't need a transfusion so would be doing blood tests a bit later and monitor me for 12 hours. 

A while later the midwife came back and asked if I felt ready to have a shower so they could move me to postnatal and I said yes. How wrong was I! As I walked supported into the bathroom, I said to the other half that I felt dizzy and I fainted! I remember hearing him say that I was fainting and then just remember being sat on the floor. I came round really quickly and they helped me back to bed where they re-took my blood pressure and found it had dropped massively. They then checked it a few minutes later and it was back to normal again so it was just a reaction to the shock of such a quick labour, the loss of blood and getting up too quick! They left me for a fair while until the midwife came back and needed me to try and pee as I hadn't been since they used the catheter. I went to the toilet without fainting but didn't manage to pee so they had to do another in out catheter and said I had until 11am to pee so I drank loads of water! I managed to have a shower and by 7am I was transferred to the postnatal ward where I was then successful in going to the toilet.

They mentioned that I might have to stay in overnight which was really annoying but then suddenly (after I'd had more blood tests), while the other half had gone for a bacon sarnie in the cafe, a midwife came along and said we were being discharged! Of course it took hours and we finally got the discharge papers at 3pm when they were happy that I didn't need a transfusion and that I didn't have an infection. My mum was already on her way up with Zach and the baby car seat so when they arrived we were ready to be taken home. Zach came bundling into the ward and immediately was up on the bed looking at his new little brother. That was the best moment for me. Totally emotional. 

And that was my birth story. It was fast, it was dramatic and it was a wee bit scary but I am so bloody proud of myself for doing it. I got my vbac and I got another beautiful baby boy – Oscar.

      Aww thank you! It's funny because I wrote Zach's birth story a couple of years after it happened but it was so simple and always in my mind. Even with writing this a week after Oscar's birth there were bits that I couldn't quite remember! I guess it was so different and for some of it I don't even remember it happening haha! Such a special moment to have written down though! xx

    Sounds like it was quite an experience. You did so well to cope with the contractions getting so strong so quickly. My friends said they found the stitches the most painful part too (I'd had to have spinal so didn't feel them). But I don't blame you for just wanting to grit your teeth through them. So glad that Oscar arrived safe and well (and that you didn't have to spend a night on the ward!).

I can't believe how quick it was, you trooper! I needed a catheter to get the placenta out as my bladder was so full it was restricting the placenta delivery.

I too have experienced both births, both my girls were natrual and my son was a c-section. I found recovering from a natrual birth so much easier, but all 3 births were just as miraculous and specail, just differnt like you say. He is beautiful and I LOVE your name choice! Congrats beautiful, may you and your boys alwasy know laughter, love and happiness XXOO #TwinklyTuesday

    Goodness what a drama! If I'd waited for my contractions to be three minutes apart for two hours my second would have been born at home. You just know when it's time to go! #twinklytuesday

    Awww congratulations! I've still never read a birth story that wants a tiny bit scary. Thank goodness you got him out quickly well done you. I am so impressed with the lack of pain relief. He's gorgeous huni. Snap with the two boys and a lovely name xx #twinklytuesday xx

      There was no time for any other pain relief…I reckon I'd have been screaming for an epidural otherwise haha!!! xx

    Oh my goodness I can't turn around with coming across another blogger who's just given birth! It's in the air. I had scheduled c-sections with all 3 and pathetic as this sounds, take my hat off to anyone that does natural birth. It's my biggest phobia. So well done you. Goodness me, the fainting…meanwhile I almost fainted just reading about your stiches. Jeez you're hardcore. My youngest sis had her second child this morning actually. She'd been climbing the walls as the baby was so very overdue and after all that, he arrived in 20 minutes flat! You ladies rock. #twinklytuesday
