Been having contractions since about 5.30am. Currently about 8 minutes apart- I'm fed up! With DS and DD I was well on the way to them arriving (both 6 1/2 hour labours), but it looks like I'm going to take a bit longer this time around.

So, anyone care to distract me/give me any tips on how to speed things up?

I had a labour like that - not much happening it seemed, so based on my first labour I thought I must have had hours to go, I thought, then whoosh - I suddenly started pushing and had to get hold of the midwife pdq.

It's a boy! Rory Michael was born at 3.14pm, weighing 8lbs 12oz. It was my longest labour at 9 3/4 hours, but it was fairly straightforward so I managed to stay at home.

The other DCs aren't overly impressed, but they're still so little themselves that I wasn't expecting them to be.

Any chance of a pic? When you've got a minute in a day or two of course. I spect its all family snuggles and trying to get him latched on atm. Oooh I'd do anything to hold a newborn at the mo.

I'll get a picture up in the morning, but basically he looks just like DS1, but with darker hair. He is rather lovely though smile
