He was 10 days overdue, and I had to have my waters broken (no gel or drip though thankfully!) - but it was only a 3 hour labour in the end! Although I have to admit that the last half hour to 45 mins was one of the most painful in my life - it was excrutiating! And since it all happened so quickly there was no time for drugs, so all I had was gas for about 10 mins, and then it was time to push! And 10 mins of pushing and he was out! Thankfully he was facing the right way, so all those fears about a posterior birth were unneccesary. Happily, no stitches or anything so I'm feeling great physcially... just very very tired.
So a very different experience compared to the first time around.
I will be back later to blog more about the details (since I love birth stories!) - for now I'm trying to figure out how to juggle a newborn and a toddler on my own since hubby has had to go back to work already :( Forgot just how exhausting a newborn can be!
