Final countdown

Post by ella on Sun Jun 07, 2015 5:06 pm

Long time no speak guys and gals happy

But I'm 38+2 weeks pregnant now and due a week on Friday which is the 19th, I'm having a homebirth for those that don't know, and was just waiting on the hospital ringing me which they did Friday afternoon to say I was now at the top of the waiting list for the birth pool hire and I could collect it, so we went yesterday afternoon to pick it up and now just waiting for bubba to make their grand entrance.

Last saw my midwife a week or so ago and baby was full engaged then so haven't been able to walk normally for a while now lol and she has estimated a 9lb 5 baby and their growth has followed that line the whole way through but we shall wait and see!

My pool!


party

Is it a blow-up pool Ella? (Like an oversized child's paddling pool) And then do you run the water in through a hose or buckets?

I remember not being able to walk properly with my first baby, and I just can't imagine constructing a pool and filling it with water in that condition, never mind in the first stages of labour! But I guess all this has been gone into and fine action plan has been worked out.

Sorry about all the questions Ella, but I've never come across anyone who has had a water birth and I'm fascinated. I have heard that it is a wonderfully relaxing way to give birth.

Looking forward to your next news! And am sending you my best wishes

Yeah they are specially made blow up pools, so have handles to hold onto and a little 'seat' in the pool. You fill it up with a hose attached to a tap. But the pool comes with a pump to blow it up so only takes a few minutes.

I'm quite happy to start getting the pool started if Martin isn't here when labour starts, but he doesn't work far and he can leave the moment I ring him, but really it's dead easy.

Water birth isn't for everyone but water has always been an amazing pain reliever for me whereas it might not be for the next person. But you are very limited to what pain relief you can have at a home birth whereas I just want the water happy

Oh good, Martin will be on red alert and can be with you in minutes - excellent. Just leave all the pool stuff to him!

I am sure it will all go swimmingly! (sorry, couldn't resist!)
