Primrose is 2 and a half now so my memory is a little foggy but thought it time to actually write my birth story.
Three days before my due date I went to bed as normal. I woke around 3am with some period like cramps. I got up around 6am and had a shower breathing through the surges which we manageable but starting to pick up. The midwife came around 7am and examined me. I was shocked to find that in those short hours I was 3cm dilated. With my first I was in labour for 5 days and only 0.5cm in all that time. So I was very happy with the fact id stayed so calm and managed to progress so well.
