Well, I was right - he's a boy! labour was a fairly leisurely 9 hours or so, completely different from ds1. he weighed in at 9lb 2oz (glad I wasn't expecting that!!) - a full 2lb more than ds1 - but the midwives were great and I have no stitches or tears, so I feel quite proud of myself! Home birth was great, so nice not to have to go anywhere. Will post the full story on the homebirth thread.
We can't stop looking at the new little bundle lying beside us - we're so lucky
