My beautiful Harriet was born at 0034 on Friday 15 July after a rather speedy induced labour. We have more tests to come but she seems to be so well and healthy that they are doing them as an outpatient over the next couple of weeks rather than days .

She is feeding well and is active and alert. We are totally loved up and came home today.

I OD'd on gas & air and spent the 2nd stage (19 mins!) thinking I was on a trapeze! DH said he has never heard screaming like it and apparently the midwives had to close all the doors in the unit . I have had a alcoholic-type blackout about it and can't remember the actual delivery, just seeing her on a resusitaire next to me and asking if that was my baby. No more trapezes for me - it was way too wierd.

Her arm was up over her face and made me tear but I'm not finding the stitches anywhere near as traumatic as when I had DS1.

I disgraced myself further on the way to special care the next day by bleeding, then fainting, all over the corridor so had to go back to Delivery for an oxytocin drip, and was thrown off the princess ward and put on a high dependancy ward.

All is fine now. I burst into tears on the way out of the hospital and sobbed about how I couldn't believe I was taking home a live baby. I didn't know I could feel so happy. Thank you so much to everyone on here for their kindness and support during such a difficult pregnancy.

Very happy for you mrs d, and had to LOL at some of your hospital performances... most unlike your namesake's character.

I expect 'relieved' is not the word to describe how you feel. It's been a long ride, and I guess it's only just beginning, LOL.

Big congrats, and looking forward to seeing a picture of the babba. Really pleased the medics are so happy with you / her, and hope you can be fully assured by subsequent tests / scans about your bundle of joy.
