I'm having a baby today :)
things didn't really turn out the way I wanted them to go, but then, none of this pregnancy really did.
I'll be heading off to hospital to be induced due to what they call prolonged rupture of membranes (my waters went yesterday morning and I didn't go into labour).

Wish me luck.. I might be able to keep updates on facebook, seen as I can do that through my phone.
I'll be back very soon. :D

Good luck Flaiming Haran!

lol naz.
my other half suggested half-seriously we name him Damian. ;)

Now you've done it! I'll be thinking of him as Flamian for the rest of his life now. (Being immortal it's rather pointless to think of anything for the rest of my life.)

You're going to be updating facebook while giving birth? I didn't think anything was going to beat the girl that died twittering in the bath(giggity(I just had to get there first)) but you have just proven me wrong.

How long before there will be a specialised ... well ... let's call it other-body-part-book for this kind of occasion?

Good Luck Anaiya! We're all hanging out in the virtual waiting room for you. ~passes around drinks and snacks~

hehehe, with a lot of begging I got myself a stay of execution until tomorrow morning at 11 am - 48 hours after my waters broke. Just to see if I can actually start things naturally. Looks like I can :D

Good Luck... we will want pictures, of course.

but don't make your docs too nervous; waiting too long after the Breaking of the Waters makes docs nervous. Too bad you aren't doing the birthing pool in the garden, though, that was an interesting mental image..:D

(or was it the paddle pool in the living room?)

Anaiya Sedai
07-28-2009, 10:36 AM
the pool in the living room :p

I know it makes them nervous, apparently the guidlines for PROM have been changed from 96 to 24 hours. But my midwife was quite insistant they let me try without the drips and stuff first, which I'm really grateful for. Either way, it'll either be tonight or tomorrow. :)
And I promise pictures. Of the end product, not the between stages :p

Good Luck... we will want pictures, of course. gah! And thank you, Anaiya, for promising only the AFTER pictures!

I trust all will go well. :) I guess the days of prohibiting cell phones in hospitals is over?

~wonders if we'll see a post of "EEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHGGGGHHHH! at some point.~

Last chance to do something epic Anaiya. Velociraptor is quite the legendary name.

Its still not allowed in most of the hospital, but they allow patients to have them in their rooms now.

Velociraptors?

Velociraptors? I sprayed Mountain Dew everywhere when I read that...ROFL.... (EDIT: repped) (EDIT EDIT: Well, attempted rep. It told me I must "spread rep around before giving it to Ihvon again" Whatever that means)

As for the topic...WHY THE HELL are you online? :confused: I dunno about anyone else, but that wouldn't exactly be the highest priority to me...

I've been trying to talk her into a little round of Guild Wars while she's in boring stage 1 labor, but sadly she can't bring her laptop into the L&D room.

It's called distraction :p
And I'm leaving for hospital in a bit, seems mother nature has given up on me again and needs a helping hand.... anyway, shouldn't be too long now.

thanks for all these wonderful suggestions :D

And she hasn't yet posted about it...Totally not a HCFF.

Terez

Yeah, but she's been posting labor updates on Facebook from her phone. That's hard core!

hippie-joe
08-01-2009, 11:55 AM
the hospital will prolly keep her for 2 or 3 days. it's been 2 already so she ought to be back by tomorrow if not earlier... then she can tell us all about it. do we know from ultrasounds and what not if its a boy or girl? or did she want it to be a surprise?

GonzoTheGreat
08-01-2009, 12:22 PM
Based on the ultrasound, it's a velociraptor, but she isn't willing to admit that.

yes and smart too, they use these to their advantage, out smarting and surrounding their pray.

i wouldn't be surprised if there were really a few in there and they just fooled the ultrasound into thinking there was only the one...

i hope the doctor still has his hand after all is said and done

Brita, I don't mind sharing birth stories, but maybe we should do it somewhere it won't put the men off.. :D

Seriously, though, it wasn't that bad.

Brita, I don't mind sharing birth stories, but maybe we should do it somewhere it won't put the men off.. :DI can support you with an actual quote, of course. :D
LoC, A Threat, Chapter 41

From there the two of them passed quickly on to childbirth itself. Neither had ever borne a child, but each had helped midwives.
Rand cleared his throat loudly. It was not that any of the details bothered him. He had helped ewes lamb, mares foal and cows calve. What was irritating was that they sat there with their heads together as though he had ceased to exist. Neither looked around until he cleared his throat again, loud enough that he wondered whether he had strained something.
Melaine leaned closer to Min and spoke in a whisper that could have been heard in the next room. "Men always faint."
"And always at the worst possible time," Min agreed in the same tone.Which makes your point quite well.

And to stay in character myself, I've used some selective quoting here.

PS I see that you've wrapped up the claws.

If you start posting birth stories, you might force me to dig up the one we wrote for our first. Trust me, I won't be put off. :D

Anaiya -

Congragtulations. Velociraptor is adorable.

As for birth stories, if we can make it through the orgasm thread, I think we can survive birth stories.

Though I don't know whether any of the posters here has experienced an orgasmic childbirth, yet.

Plus Velociraptor is more polite than what I call MY firstborn ;) And you can pick any of the names I have used for him too. Actually the seven are La Reina (or The Freakshow), Squidward, Jackass (or MFYF, Ogre), Bratticus (a.k.a. Her Evil Majesty) and then the Czar, Emporer and the Great Khan.
