My Labour in Tweets

While in labour with Paige I tweeted through most of it. Mostly because it was so long (30+hours) but also because I was on my own for most of it. Mark went to work for the day before Paige arrived. I didn't think I was in labour so off mark went to work. This resulted in me spending the day at home on my own while having contractions.

I found it so useful to be able to tweet and take my mind off the contractions. It was lovely to have contact with loads of women who had gone through labour and delivered a baby. Having the support and friendly words was amazing.

I knew this time that I wanted to do the same if I could. I knew that second labours could be a lot quicker so I had to wait to see how things planned out second time around.

If you follow me on twitter you may remember seeing my tweets during my labour with Parker. You may have not realised I was in labour... I had no clue!

I didn't even tweet about my waters going because I was so sure that they hadn't. I also didn't tweet about going to hospital to get checked because I thought they would turn me away. It's so funny to look back on the tweets as I never saved them with Paige.



 
 
 
After the birth...
 
 
 

 
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that made my tweets a favourite, replied back to me or left supportive comments on Instagram. I wish I had tweeted more during labour but it was so quick and my contractions really stepped up as soon as we left for the hospital that I didn't really have enough time between contractions to tweet.
 
Would you tweet through labour?
 
Thanks for reading,
