My beautiful girl has arrived. Sienna Mae was born on the evening of the 9th February. She weighed 9.5 lbs (3.4 kilos) and was 51cms!!! I had to have an induction due to fears of pre-eclampsia (no blood pressure problems at all previously) and after 12 hours of grueling back labour where I couldn't dilate, my doctor performed a c-section. Her birth was nothing like I had hoped for but she is here safe and sound and so am I which is the main thing. She is breast feeding like a champ and although mr k and I are not getting much sleep, we are very happy. Full birth story and pics to come.

I was due on the 2nd and I am now 5 days overdue. Baby is fully cooked. I have no idea what is going on. I have had really bad back pain for the last three days and I feel like the baby has descended but I am not really sure. I only know it is pretty difficult to walk around! I can't work out what is symphisis pubis dysfunction and what is pre-labour. I now understand what my friends have meant when they say they are over being pregnant. We did have an induction scheduled yesterday but decided to cancel as we felt we want to give me the best chance to go into a natural birth however if I continue to feel like this, we will probably try and schedule one for next week. Keeping my fingers crossed (but nothing else!!:)
