Beautiful dd Shannon Rose arrived 04/05 after a lovely, problem-free labour
I went into hospital for an induction at 39wks but when they examined me i was already 2cm without even realising it so there was no need so i took a mild sleeping tablet and slept all night. The following morning they broke my waters at 10am, then put me on the syntocin drip at 11.30am. Things really speeded up then and I gave in and had the epidural at 12. I LOVE EPIDURALS i hate pain. Shannon was born at 14.50, it took just a few pushes to get her out and it really felt like the most natural thing in the world. Totally opposite to ds's birth which was scary, dramatic and urgent. I watched her coming out, and had a little cry as she was wrapped up and checked. My midwifes name was Rose, she was absolutely brilliant and did a fantastic job. I named my dd after her
Ds loves his new baby sister, tells everyone "she's a cutie" and she is

Thanks everyone.
Hoxtonchick - Shannon was 7lb14oz, at 38+5, which wasnt too big, but I'm glad she is here as I'm sure she would have grown loads in the last 2,3 or 4 wks due to the gd.
LGJ - Im in co wexford.

sounds like a perfect size (my ds was 7lbs10 at 39 weeks). well done!

Congratulations! I love the idea of naming dd after your midwife. Mine was called Fanny, so I named a bodypart after mine instead!
