Adams Hello :)

ADAM DEMPSEY POMEROY
- 7 March 2010 -

11.39pm
3815g (8lbs 6oz)
51cm long
35cm head

We welcomed our forth and final child into the world on the 7th March 2010. His labour was incredible......

I woke at around 6am with contractions which were 10 minutes apart by 10am they were coming anywhere between 2 minutes and 10 minutes, but still very manageable and I wasn't overly worried. This kept on for the remainder of the day by about 4pm I thought I'd just ring the hospital and see what they thought as my labours can go from nothing to a baby being born in a matter of an hour. We ended up going up about 6pm where I was strapped to the monitor and found that I was having one contraction on top of the other with major peaks. I could only feel every second or third contraction though.

Was put into a labour room and told to go for a walk, Luke and I ended up walking around the hospital for half an hour or so. Went back into my room and jumped into the shower for a little bit. Midwife decided to check to see what was happening at around 8-8.30pm only to find I HADN'T EVEN STARTED TO DILATE....... was pretty confused and a little upset to boot.

We were then told seeing as I wasn't really in labour, Luke had to go home but they would keep me as I was being induced the next day anyway. So poor old Lukey trundled off home around 9.30pm after I'd been moved down the corridor to the Maternity ward, ended up with one of the best rooms in the ward though :) which I got to keep too. Was given some panadol and a couple of sleeping tablets and told to try and sleep.

Had a few smallish contractions while I was trying to go to sleep which I thought nothing of seeing as nothing was happening. Had one more which was a little more intense, made me jump out of bed anyway. Paced around the room a little and was making my way out to talk to the midwives when one come in and asked if I wanted to have a shower. YEP. Took all my gear back down to the labour ward, jumped into the shower and probably had 5 very very intense contractions, but still compared to what I remember of Deacons labour they were nothing........ All of a sudden I felt the need to push, buzzed the midwives and got out of the shower. Jumped on the bed still completely drenched, where my waters broke (first time they have broken naturally), one of the midwives grabbed my phone for me so I could ring Luke, he'd only gotten home half an hour beforehand, told him that I was pushing.

Welcomed baby Adam 9 minutes later still in shock that it was all over and that I did it by myself, his shoulders got stuck and he needed oxygen after he was born. unsure if he had the cord wrapped around his neck. :( was sad that Luke wasn't able to be there with me but heck I wasn't going to hang on for an hour while he got up to the hospital. So I had to ring Luke back and tell him that we now have our third son :) he still drove up to say hi and have a little cuddle. So it was all over in such a short time (going from hospital records 45 minutes total) and really very painless. No drugs and no stitches and I got to cut the cord too :)

We are truely blessed and excited that this little man has come into our lives........

And I got my 8 pound baby lol plus I don't think he was overdue as he was fully covered in Vernix, isn't red or peeling and is still quiet hairy, but hey he's here and he is perfect.
