Back from the hospital with baby #2.
All in all, it was a great birth experience:
i went into hospital as planned at 7am in the morning on tues, put onto epidural and onto an oxytocin drip to induce the birth. My gynae burst the water bag and it was literally a swimming pool in there! No wonder my tummy was mega size. :) Right after that, the contractions came pretty regularly... unlike my 1st birth, the epidural dose this time around was only very slight, so i could experience the contractions. Once i've dilated to 10cm, the contractions come even stronger and along with it the urge to push. This is the first time i'm experiencing this as for G, the epidural took away all sensation below the waist. The gynae came and just 2 pushes later, Baby's out! It's amazing as the whole experience was extremely positive and also i was much more confident compared to the first birth.
So, announcing the birth of Baby #2 (no name as yet!) at 12:49pm, 9th October 2007, Length - 52cm, Weight - 3.53kg.
G is so totally amazing as a big sister. She was super excited to see her little sister, so excited to carry her and to hold her :) I'm so proud of my little girl!
Thanks for all the wellwishes!!! :)
