Had DS this afternoon after all sorts of horrendous complications, (not least a severe reaction of the induction gel and a mad dash to theatre for an aborted crash section), but he's so scrummy and I can't stop looking at him. Obv am pumped full of happy hormones but still can't quite believe what he and I survived today and that I get to keep him!
Just wanted to share really!

Also, hope you're doing ok after what sounds like a fairly traumatic labour.

Sorry you had a hard time, I hope your recovery time is short.

Thanks ladies! I know I should totally make the most of a good night's sleep before I go home to DD (2.2) tomorrow but I also know that I'll never get this time just me and him again. sigh

Oh many congratulations!! I can still remember that mad euphoria, and being so excited - and my youngest is nearly 12!

Lucky you, on the merry-go-round again.

What a lovely post, many congratulations grin

I had DD2 3 weeks ago & am still a little bit disbelieving that I got to be so lucky twice. It's an amazing feeling, cherish every moment.

Sorry to hear your labour was bad, hope your recovery is short.

Congrats! I was exactly the same after dd who is now 11 mo. she's my 3rd and last so I was extra excited and just stated at her all night.

Would happily just sleep now though grin

How lovely, congratulations!

Badgerina Thu 25-Oct-12 22:41:10

OP you said "aborted crash section" do I take that to mean it didn't happen after all?

The same thing happened to DS2 and me nearly 3 weeks ago. Reaction to pessary, baby's heart rate dipped, rushed to theatre, told I'd need a crash section, baby managed to right himself, phew!

Congratulations! It's the BEST feeling in the world isn't it grin grin grin
