Meet Esra...

This is little 'Esra Aaliyah Emin', I gave birth to her naturally in water on Friday the 30th of September at 21.36. She weighed 2.81kg and was 50cm tall. Words cannot describe how me and Hubby feel right now, Esra is so precious and everything seems so unreal.




When I woke up on Friday morning I had mild contractions that were only a tiny bit more uncomfortable than your average braxton hicks. By about midday they got a little stronger and so we went to the hospital/birthing centre as they told me to come in, I was checked at approx 3pm and then sent home as I wasn't dilated at all. We came back home and the contractions were closer together and lasting much longer causing me excruciating pain and penty of screaming so we went back to the hospital and I was checked at approx 7pm and I was 3 cm dilated. At this point I was told I would be checked again after FOUR hours which made me go a little bit crazy and I wanted to kill the nurses. I was begging for them to give me painkillers, cut me and knock me out as I couldn't do it. After about 1hr I was screaming and telling them I need to push and I was checked and at 8cm, I went into the pool and she was out by 9.36pm. A water birth is truly amazing, I did it all by myself whilst only using gas & air and it was crazy and beautiful that she was born into my hands. I'm so thankful that my labour was quite quick even though it was terribly painful, I'm so out of it right now as I haven't slept much the past couple of nights, but it's SO worth it! :)



Esra – Origin: Turkish/Arabic Meaning: Night journey, from the surah ‘Isra’ from the holy quran.

Aaliyah
– Origin: Arabic Meaning: High, exalted and gracious.



She looks so much like her Daddy! She's so cute, I want to squish her but can't as she is so tiny! :) Her hair is a dark blonde/light brown colour and her eyes are blue at the moment but I think they will change to green. Babies are such miracles, I can't thank god enough for being blessed with a healthy beautiful baby.



Speak soon and thank you for all the lovely messages on Twitter. x Xx

You're so brave! I haven't had children yet, but the thought of a natural birth really scares me! The pain must have been unbearable. I love the new daddy/baby photo, those always make me a little emotional!
