Mila Nouvel

Born Monday 19th November at 07:15am, 56cm and 3.7kg


She has finally arrived into our world, our little princess and
we are totally in love with her !!
Sometimes I just start crying looking at her thinking what a miracle we have here with us :)
She eats and sleeps very well, and so far I only have to get up once at night to feed her.
I do find it a bit hard though to put her back to bed after her night feed as when I burp her she tends to wake up, and if I dont burp her she will puke her milk up and takes me sometimes 2 hrs to get her back to sleep.
The birth was pretty aweful though I have to say, being induced for 4 days made me pretty tired and not being able to sleep at nights !
My midwife got pretty upset as the nurses at the Hospital didnt inform her I was being induced.
There was no reason for me being induced, I wasnt even overdue !
But as my waters broke on the Saturday morning, and no contractions, they put me on this agressive drip on Sunday to start them.
Only took 15 mins for my first contraction to come and within hours I was having 5 contractions within 10 min !
Hello Epidural !!
I got told the drip labour is more painful, but hey I dont understand how most woman do this naturally ?!
It huuurts !!
So I got the Epidural and much better.
Not long after I noticed the labour pain was coming back, specially on one side of my lower back.
My partner noticed my epidural was leaking !!
My midwife tried to get hold of the person giving me my Epidural but he was in the theater operation room and was going to be an hour or so.
Oh....that was a looooong painful hour !
When I finally got the Epidural, I could still feel the pain :/
They though my baby was probably sitting on a nerv.
So I had to go through this with this bad labour back pain ahhhhhh !
19 hours later I had finally dilated to 10 cm's and was ready to push.
I seriously had no energy anymore, so much pain, vomiting, gas, tired !!
I was pushing for over an hour, but my cervix was so far back and her head kept sliding back up.
My body seemed to shut down, I didnt even get anymore contractions !
So...after all this time in hospital and long labour, I ended up with what I was fearing.. C-section.
Really ??!!
Then I woke up again, pure fear, my whole body was shaking, the thought of being cut up !
Oh my I was scared.
But my partner was there with me the whole time telling me everything was going to be ok :)
The progress them cutting me and getting her out of my belly went  pretty fast, it was the putting me back together that took long and very very uncomfortable !
But when I heard her first cry...JOY !!
She looked exactly like me when I was a neworn baby.
Both me and my partner cried, so overwhelmed with love !!
I couldnt believe she was finally here with us xxx

Thought I would finally get some sleep after the birth but oh no...I was too excited to sleep and at night my partner had to leave the hospital so I had to be up and watch her, as first time parent I was worried about most things !
The 2nd night was an experience, think I was breastfeeding for 12 hours to bring the milk in!
I thought geez...does my lil bub never stop sucking and go to sleep ?! lol
My nipples are sooo sore...weeeeeee !

After spending a week in hospital I was so happy to come home again, back to normal, my own bed, normal food and to see my puppies again :)
I have been in some pain from the C-section, not being able to get out of bed, walk etc, but I have healed up pretty good and fast in a weeks time.
But im not liking the numb feeling I have on my belly and not being able to drive.

Our plan is to get pregnant again pretty soon :)
Will start trying in 2-3 months !
We want a big family and im not getting any younger so need to start again soon.
I loved being pregnant...

Just a little update on whats going on.
I had to come into the hospital at 9am on thursday morning the15th Nov to see an Obstetrician as I had high blood pressure. 
So they checked my blood again which was ok, but my blood pressure was still high.
Waited in a room for 2 hours to hear what they were gonna do.
They decided to put me into a ward and induce me. Was so anxious and freaked out all day !
Didnt know much about inductions. So I sent my partner home to pick up my hospital bag and babies bag.
That night I had one hour sleep, as I was so anxious plus lots of baby cries keeping me awake, people coming and going aswell. 
Friday morning I felt like a Zombie !!
Got induced 2 times on the friday 16th November, her actual due date.
But even after this me cervix just wont open !! Argh...
Slept better on friday night, woke up at 4.30 am, as they keep checking my blood pressure and monitoring the contractions. 
05.00am my water broke !
They moved me into a birthing room at 7am and told me I probably have the baby today, Sat 17th November, so I got really excited, but also ridic nervous !
They induced me AGAIN. I think every nurse here at the hospital has now examed me haha.
They prepared the drip into my hand to force the labour, but when they examed me, my cervix was STILL closed !! So they had to induce me... A G A I drip was aloud yet.
Getting so tired and over being at the hospital, waiting for things to happen, missing home and my lil doggies too!! 
The food at the hospital is just dreadfull..YUK...even my dogs wouldnt eat it !!
Once again my partner had to go home overnight at 9pm and let me stay here at hospital alone :(
Didnt sleep again, had bad labour pains as they induced me before bedtime...not good !
Its now Sunday 18th November, and I have been in hospital since thursday morning.
Another day of "maybe"?!
But they are thinking of forcing the labour now with the drip....
Bit scared as I know the labour is painful, and so far I have only had the mild labour pains !!
So im pretty sure I will have the epidural.
So thats it for now... its 10am on sunday morning, waiting for my partner to come in again to hospital and wait for things to happen !!

39 Weeks + 3 days

Tick ...Tock...Tick..Tock..
no signs of any labour yet.
Im due on Friday 16th Nov.
Really dont want to go past the date, she is getting bigger and I have to push her out right hehe.
Today I have been feeling really emotional and so nervous, think my hormones are all over the place and I keep crying randomly !
Saw my midwife today and I had a sudden High blood pressure, which so far has been completely normal, so I had to go to the LabTest urgently for a blood test for Preeclampsia !
It completely freaked me out, but I am a total hypochondriac, so just imagine how I will feel when I go into labour ahhhhhh, and I freak out when Im in hospitals, so who knows how this is gonna go ??!
My blood results came back 4 hours later OK, pheeeeew !
My midwife thinks my body might just be getting ready for labour and could cause a sudden rise in blood pressure, but an Obstetrican will do a check up on friday, unless I have had lil bubba by then !
Wish Me Luck !!

38 weeks pregnant and she could come any day !!
Been on maternity leave for 2 weeks now and time has just flown by,
 I cant believe Im about to meet this little person so soon.
Everyday Im thinking...mayby today?!
Im still really really nervous, such an emotional experience to go through.
Trying to rest but I keep doing things all the time like cleaning the house constanly and gardening, probably cause I wont have time later!
I think I will miss my big belly a little bit and feeling her kicks inside of me :)
