After only 5 hours of labour I gave birth to my beautiful baby, George. I woke up at 3.48am thinking I had constipation. But when I reaslised the pain was coming and going I called labour ward who told me to go in. I was convinced it was just constipation, but when I got there I was told I was 2cm dilated. They gave me morphine (fantastic stuff!) and said they'd check mein 4 hours to see if I'd got to 3 cm so I could have the epi (that would take us to 8am). Contractions felt just like constipation, didn't hurt unil 6am, when I suddenly felt I needed the toilet. Mum got the nurse who checked and I was 9 1/2 cm dilated, 2 hours after being just 2!! She told me no time for epi (I becam quite hysterical). Suddenly contractions were very painful and I needed to push/. My poor baby got into distress and the minute I heard the word episiotomy I pushed like hell and he shot out! He needed resusciatating but I was so shocked I didn't realise. Baby's daddy fainted as I pushed and most people in the room were gathered around him! But my baby is doing great now, he's gorgeous, lots of long black hair, very long and skinny, 7lbs 13oz... I'm in A LOT of pain from my stitches though, incredibly swollen and can barely move, making it hard to care for my baby boy :(

Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
