Baby Josephine arrived on Sunday at 3.40am weghing 8lb 5oz with a full head of fluffy brown hair and a gorgeous little mouth.

Perhaps because it was second time around but really couldn't have wished for a better birth. Contractions started at 8pm Saturday - I was enjoying a glass of wine so decided to have another! Went to hospital at 10pm, had epidural at 11pm - baby by 3.40am.

Too strong contractions so decided not to have enema despite my prudishness - in fact didn't really care at all. In fact complete mess - poo, blood, water but midwife and midwife student were lovely and pro throughout. All staff I came into contact with were very nice - recommend Kingston.
Saw her come out using mirror - that was amazing.

DH and DD picked us up yesterday lunch time and we were all back home by 2pm - lovely.

She is a real sucking baby so DH off out to get nipple cream today - can't wait for actual milk to come.

Posted congrats on other thread too, but just wanted to say lovely news, and great idea to keep slugging back the wine. Impressively short stay in hospital - good for you.
