Savvy's Birth Stories
I went into premature labour at 32 weeks was having contractions at
intermittent intervals, I went to hospital they said that she was fully
engaged, I thought I would soon see who had been kicking me at last.
Then the bombshell came they said that I had to admitted into hospital
as my blood pressure was dangerously high. I was diagnosed with
pre-eclampsia ( this was the same time a storyline was on coronation
street and her baby died, because she had pre-eclampsia. I was given an
injection to stop the contractions, which worked.
Anyway I stayed in hospital for 2 weeks till they were happy I was well
enough to go home. At my 38 week check up I was admitted again after my
blood pressure was ridiculously high, so then they decided to induce me.
Well they tried 6 times and the little devil kicked herself back out.
Then the consultant decided to break my waters (after trying 2 weeks of
failed inducements) they found it had meconium in so they said the baby
was getting distressed. So they took me down to a labour room and put me
on a drip to kick start my contractions. After being there all day my
contractions only got to 98% and she was getting so distressed and I was
In the end at 10.30pm they decided to do an emergency caesarean they
said she was stuck at 11.26pm I had a lovely little girl who weighed
9lbs. Despite what I had been through I took one look at her and thought
it was worth it all. We went up to the ward to begin our new life
I had a planned c-section for her, they took me down to the theatre when
all of a sudden they said we have to call the main consultant. He came
took one look at Jenna and said " bloody hell your in deep ".
Apparently Jenna wanted to be born naturally and I was actually in slow
labour. So the consultant knelt on the tale with his hand in my belly(
it was like a scene out of a comedy). He had to grab her legs to pull
her up to get her out the sun-roof. After a few minutes of tugging my
little girl came into the world at a healthy 8lb 4oz's.
