Yep a little boy. Nathan Edward

Born at 13.15 today

Weighing in at 7lb 13oz's

Length 51cms.

Thats the good news, will continue details after the bad news.

DH's Granddad went into hospital on xmas eve, with an abdominal mass, after the crappiest xmas day, a phone call this morning to tell us he passed away (8.15am).

I woke up at 4am with back ache, then again at 8am, 8.15am I started getting contractions, I went into hospital at 10am, monitored then about 11.30am contractions came on good and strong. Had gas & air for most of contractions, then had pethidine, finally Nathan was born at 13.15pm.

We had decided on Nathan Edward, but it now means more to the family as Grandad was called Edward.

Fairly easy labour, after 2 hours of birth Paed came, checked over baby and I was allowed to come home. I was having a lovely bath.

Similiarities between DS's

Dominic 6lb 13oz's 50 cms 2.01am 6th
Nathan 7lb 13oz's 51 cms 1.15pm 26th

Both born on a sunday, with a 6th in their birthdays.
