Baby Eliza born january 6th 2011 weighing 8lb 8oz. The baby i was told i had a less than 1% chance of having is finally here.

firstly i would just like to say a massive thanks to everyone who posted on my numerous threads before i finally went into labour 13 days late. I couldn't have gotten through it without you all.

i joined mn after having my first miscarriage in 2008 and i have received so much support whilst undergoing recurrent miscarriage tests etc. especially from the girls on the recurrent buns thread. <getting a bit emotional,sob!>

I'm not going to post my whole birth story, just the short version.

regular but short contractions started at 10.30pm ish, roughly 6min apart but only lasting 30-40 seconds. decided about 11.30pm i had better get checked out as i lost a pretty big blood clot and i knew i had to be a fair bit dilated as i had been 3cm at 2.30 that afternoon (had a sweep)

got to hosp and was examined at 12.30, 5cm. pains were very intense but short. i was allowed into the pool straight away and used g&a for a while.

waters broke at 3am baby born in the water at 3.39am. as i felt her head moving down i reached down and delivered her myself. I had to unwrap the cord from around her neck but she was absolutely fine.

a few feeding issues but all sorted now.

i am absolutely besotted with her, as is her dad and brother and sister. I will try and post a pic on my profile shortly.

He's doing great mumatron thanks Starting to settle into a bit of a routine now which is nice, sleeping a few hours at night, feeding really well. It's been a big adjustment for us but we're delighted to have him, he's an angel DH is a natural with him, I'm so impressed with how well he deals with him.

Saw the pics of Eliza, she is absolutely beautiful grin
