My gorgeous little girl arrived on her due date!
I had a couple of big contractions at about 11pm Wed 21/10 then my waters broke about 11.30pm and she was born via VBAC on Thurs 22/10 at 05:33hrs.
She looked so little to me but she was 3.755kg, 51cm long and HC 35.5. I got some stitches out of it too which has never happened before but she is my last so I don't mind, except DH can't come near me for awhile! LOL.
Erin, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, there are no words to describe how unfair it is:-( x
Oh Erin, my heart goes out to you. My story could have been a bit different too.
My mum lost a term baby, when I was 5. It impacted me so much that I named my first daughter after her. Mum only recently found the mass grave where they buried her. Take your time with grieving. Our thoughts go out to you.
It was a long labour and I had no drugs but we came home from hospital at 9am yesterday (the next day). She is such a little angel!!!
Labour vibes to Lana and Mel !!!

Hubby and i are considering vasectomy but am not 100% sure. We always said we wanted 2 kids but i just feel it wont be the end of the world IF we have another, and with 2 boys you sometimes think hmmmm what if we have another ???? I recon we would have ANOTHER boy anyway, can just see us with boys, boys and more boys, they are a delight!!!!. anyway, after 3 kids DEF vasectomy !!! I suppose if we are not 100% sure if vasectomy is the path just yet maybe we should wait ? My husband is also in defence force, so they would sort it outif thats what we decide... I might do the whole mini pill thing for the next 6 months ...
Everyones babies here yet ?
Our little Pilbara Princess arrived 2 days early on Saturday 24th October at 12.21am!! Audrey Leigh weighed 3.29kgs and is 48cm long with a head circum of 34.5cm.
She is just beautiful!
It was Murphy's Law that I would go into labour on my son's 13th Birthday - he was initially very unimpressed by the thought, but as the day wore on and my contractions stayed sparodic he became more hopeful that he wouldn't have to share his birthday.
In the end my OB and midwife were fantastic and let Audrey make her own way down the birth canal with the contractions (hence delaying her arrival) and we held off "pushing" until after midnight - 20 minutes later she made her grand entrance!!
I'd like to say that my DH was an absolute rock throughout my pregnancy and birth and their is no way I could've done it without him!
I truly hope everyone is well and babies have settled into their new lives.
Well done October Mummies!

I'm still waiting to have my baby boy. I was due on the 22nd but still no signs. I have a midwife appt on Thursday to discuss induction. I also don't want to be induced, i want to experience the suprise of contractions/waters breaking etc. But not much time left to make us October mummies. I'm still hoping to make it in October without being induced. Fingers crossed for you that you don't have to be induced either.
We are still deciding which contraception to go with, DH wants to get a vasectomy but I am just not sure so have said I will get the mirena until we are absolutely positive we don't want any more children.
Hope everyone is well xx
