Morning All!

Baby Elizabeth Anne (Beth) was born at 0310 hrs on Monday 2nd August!

We're still in total shock that we've got a girl, our house has never had anything pink in it before!

I had been 2-3 cm dilated since Friday, so when my backache got worse on Sunday I decided to go into hospital. I was 4cm dilated. After 4 hrs I was STILL 4cm dilated, but I kind of thought so as the contractions weren't painful at all. The MW broke my waters at 10pm. At 2am the contractions had intensified, but still okay with Entonox and I was 6-7cm dilated. The Doc said they would examine me in 2hrs and perhaps give me syntocin (sp?)!! However, Beth had other ideas as within the hour I was pushing...... 3 pushes and out she came! It was so quick in the end.

Just had a small tear needing 3 stitches.

Breastfeeding is coming along nicely although I'm VERY SORE!

Thank goodness that's all over!!

Fab work! Congratulations! Well done!!

Girls are LOVELY. And you don't have to break out the pink for, oooh, a couple of years if you don't want to - although I warn you there'll be no stopping it then!
