Well, it has been a few weeks since I have written my blog but its been super busy!!!
We welcomed Harrison Randolph Sacker into the world on 3rd November, but it wasnt as easy a labour as I was hoping it would be.
it all started as a normal labour story, waters broke and so we went to the hospital. Once the contractions started labour was progressing nicely, but towards the end of labour Harry's heart rate wasnt recovering between contractions so the forceps were brought intot the equation. This is where things get complicated. Somehow the forceps were touching/flicking my Sciatic nerve which was causing me great pain(more painful than the contractions!!!) and so the Dr couldnt pull out Harry without me screaming in agony, and so the decision was made to go to theatre, give me a spinal tap and pull out Harry safe and sound. To add on top of the labour, I had a lot of blood loss and so also had to have an iron transfusion, which took a while to kick in, and so was tired and easily breathless for the first week or so after Harry was born. In total, labour was 5 and a half hrs and the most traumatic experience I have ever had. The Drs and nursing staff at Joondalup Hospital were fantastic and cant recommend them enough.
So even though Harry's birth was traumatic for both of us, we only stayed at the hospital a couple of nights and we are loving being home as a family of 4. As you can tell from the photo below, Harry had some bruising and abrasions to his face but it was all superficial and I'm happy to say that everything has gone down and there is no scarring to be seen! Richie is slowly adjusting to having his brother around- he is still a typical 2 yr old with the tantrums and the defiance but the moments when he is such a loving,caring brother just melts my heart!!!
