That's it really.

6lb15oz of adorable girly loveliness - on her due date, at 9.50pm.

Super quick, mega brill delivery, except now I'm wide awake and DP has had to go home.

Talk to me, about anything!

Is she right there next to you? Does she smell all warm and new and lovely? Any hair? Any name? grin

Rindercella Mon 23-Apr-12 01:07:57

Congratulations!! grin

You really have just had a baby. You must be feeling wired...I remember the feeling well.

I know it's hard, but try and get some sleep if you can you're going to need it

Oh, and congratulations again! grin

I luff her. grin

She is Nancy, and she is brilliant!!

maytheoddsbeeverinyourfavour Mon 23-Apr-12 01:23:53


Ooh your first night with your new baby, I have such lovely memories of those <happy sigh> soak in and enjoy every moment

When you're holding her give her lovely newborn head a sniff for me will you? Nothing better than the scent of baby

dammit I'm broody now a I cannot cannot have no.7, can I?!

Wow - congratulations!
When I had my DS I kept the light on for about a week at night as I thought he might disappear in the night! I couldn't quite believe I "made that", well not just me but ykwim grin

ThatVikRinA22 Mon 23-Apr-12 01:25:05

have thanks and bear from me! congratulations!

Mythical Mon 23-Apr-12 01:25:08

Yes, I confess, I am also very very jealous!!! grin

maytheoddsbeeverinyourfavour Mon 23-Apr-12 01:26:15

Welcome to the world baby nancy, I hope your life is long and happy and filled with joy smile

wipes away a sentimental tear at the miracle of new life

MumbleMumm Mon 23-Apr-12 01:26:37

Oooooo fabulous! I remember the feeling - you are a Mum!! Now gaze at that baby as much as you like, she's 100% yours to love :-)
Don't be afraid to ring that buzzer if you need some support tonight, and seriously - try to sleep!!

Murtette Mon 23-Apr-12 01:27:30

Congratulations! Love the name - that was my choice for DD but DP vetoed it. So annoying of him - how could anyone not want to name their DD after Nancy, Captain of the Amazon pirates?
V envious of you for giving birth on your due date. And having a quick labour. I am 37+3 with DC2, currently up with restless legs and just want to meet my baby.
Enjoy your little girl!

ZeroFucksGiven Mon 23-Apr-12 01:28:52

yes I agree, ring if you need anything and do try to sleep, I know you probably cant because youre so pumped up smile

Also cuddle her as much as you want, dont let anybody tell you youre making a rod for your own back!

maras2 Mon 23-Apr-12 01:31:40

Welling up hear Jambalaya.God bless you baby Nancy. Mxxxxx.

I'm so envious of your labour! I'm awake and having contractions but things aren't regular/speeding up so I'm letting everyone sleep for now.
Hope you get some sleep soon.
Shame your DH had to go home but hopefully you'll get to go home soon too and start adjusting to your new arrival as a family smile

HateBeingCantDoUpMyJeans Mon 23-Apr-12 05:03:55

Flimflammery Mon 23-Apr-12 05:09:00

You've reminded me of the first night with DD, when she amazingly slept through the night (this was not a taste of things to come), but I couldn't sleep a wink as I was so buzzed.

Enjoy bringing her home!
