Lily arrived at 9.10pm on Wednesday April 14 weighing 8lb 7oz, just like her big brother did! I was induced on my due date - Prostin gel in at 10.30am; 5 min apart contractions from 2.30pm; waters broken at 7.30pm; Lily arrived at 9.10pm. I was on the birthing ball when I had the urge to push and daren't get off as I knew she was coming so fast and was afraid she'd fall out on her head!

So three pushes and she arrived - a bit blue because of the shock of the quick entry into the world. I had second degree tear but seem to be healing ok.

She's got a shock of strawberry blonde hair and is a real dolly. First few days hard as she is a party girl who wanted to feed for 6 hours one night but she seems to be settling now.

Her big brother is 18 months today so I really have my work cut out with two little uns!

fab news bluecow - and lily is a great name - my first choice if we'd had a girl

we've got the same age difference too - ds2 is 7 weeks old now - it's already loads easier than those first hectic days so don't worry!
