Well i have a June baby. Flynn Christopher was born yesterday morning (29th June) in a real hurry weighing 7lb 10oz and 51 cms.
I started getting irregular contraction from about 2pm on the Tuesday but they were so irregular and slight that i couldnt feel them most of the day. So i organised my mum to have the younger kiddies for the night. At approx 9pm i jumped on our tredmill to try and speed things up which it did and contractions got stronger but still irregular and not painful. 12pm is when things started properly. Contractions were still irregular but within a time span of 4-8 mins but got quite painful so i rang my midwife to say we are coming in. Arrived at the hospital at approx 2am and said my waters havent broken can she break them as i believe this is what was stopping things. Waters broken at 2.20am and then i jumped in the bath. Pretty much staight away i knew he was coming. So 2.45pm and Flynn was born in the water with no pain relief. Oh so glad i will never go through that pain again, its a joy but im so over it after 3 drug free births.
We have had a tough start to his life as he was whisked away as he was blue, and had shallow breathing. My cord snapped when i grabbed him in the bath so they were worried about him losing blood through the cord. It turned out that he had fluid on the lungs due to a quick birth as a slower delivery squishes the fluid out of their lungs in the birth canal. He returned to me 4 hours later but was heavily monitored. Finally got home today and he is all clear. However i have a very hungry boy and my milk hasnt come in yet so he is quite unsettled. Im living on approx 5 hrs sleep in the last 40 hours but otherwise i feel great. Dont even have any soreness down below which is nice but the after pains are killing me. Crossing fingers for a good sleep tonight.
Hopefully the last few girls are doing well and you have approx 9 hrs left to have a june bubs. Best of luck ladies.
