he is all cute!!

i was getting a bit desperate as was at +13, but he decided to put in an appearance tonight!!

contractions started during the build up to the England match.. i had decided to eat my childbirth - reward cheescake anyway as was fed up!! (DH left it on in the other room) and called midwives and my mum..

DH got my kit prepared (vet bed down to cover carpet with dust sheet beneath - made a nice soft runway)

they came straight away fresh from another homebirth and got settled right away..

all going well so on with the job... contractions at 2 mins, in the back so stood by my bed with DH massaging (lovely hot hands)..things getting closer together with urge to bear down.

waters went and i could feel the head descend with them... two contractions later out he slipped (with the usual thought 'i don't want to do this!!') waters clear!

and he plopped out on an inco pad (with the usual mucous etc) and then cried... hooray! mw pushed him up so i could see his bits (which hid on the scan) - a little boy!

he has huge hands - and is very beautiful and looks lots like his brother. his sisters are going to be so pleased!!!

well done Jackie and Emma of Worthing Commmunity team! was really lovely, felt very comfortable in their care

Congratulations smile thanks

Congrats Edgar, what a fantastic birth sotry - made me all misty eyed.

I'll second what the others have said, he went meet Leo, but I know you and your family will ensure that he knows Leo. smile

Big love and a teeny bit of envy over all the newborn snuggly stretchyness.

brew for you.

Lovely news.

Hugs of both joy and also a little sadness.

Congratulations Edgar! I agree the Worthing team are fantastic (DS was born at the hospital, although only just!).

So pleased for you and your family and I agree with others, he will never meet Leo but that doesn't mean he won't know him. Look after yourself. smile

He won't meet Leo but you will always have two sons and he has a big brother who all the family will talk to him about.
My uncle was killed in a motorbike accident 3 years before I was born. Only one of my cousins was born then and he has no memories of him. But we know him through everything that we've been told. I know I look like him. It's not right, it's not enough but it is something. Be gentle with yourself.
