All 7lb's of her!!

I was induced at 38 weeks due to GD and docs thinking the baby was going to be huge.

The whole thing turned into a bit of a nightmare and after 3 lots of prostin, arm and 12 hours of a syntocin drip I ended up in theatre having an emergency CS.

Baby Eve was finally born on 16th september at 6:02 am weighing 7lb exactly.

She is absoulutly perfect and I am head over heels in love with her.

I'm getting there slowly, still very weak despite 2 blood transfusions but being very well looked after by my wonderful DH

Congratulations memoo! Sorry the birth was a bit of a nightmare for you, but hopefully the memory will fade away as you enjoy your little girl smile

Many congratulations. What a lovely name smile

I take it some arsehole consultant advised you were going to have a sumo baby? 7lb is a long way off a macrosemic baby.

I hope you feel better soon, it sounds like your dh is doing a grand job smile

thanks guys, I'm enjoying every second of it so far.

Quickstep, you're right, consultant told me the babb was about 10lbs already and i shouldn't let her get any bigger as i would stuggle to give birth.

Congratulations Memoo.

Those size guesstimates really are crappy, but at least Eve is here and is well. Hope you're recovering ok.
