Waiting until we speak to Oh's DF at a reasonable hour in the morning before we tell all in real life but bursting. Quick labour (v lucky)& well baby. She is beautiful and currently asleep while I gaze at her!

8-5lbs. Was worried I'd break some kind of weight record given the size of my bump but a lot of that was water. I am biased but she is lovely! Thanks all smile

Congratulations! It's a lovely time, that brief interlude when no one else, apart from medical staff and your partner know baby 👶 is here at last. I just gazed at mine in rapture.

Congratulations! Now you're in on the secret: your baby is the most gorgeous baby that was ever born (because all are!). And that's how it should be.

My DD was actually born rather ugly, as witnessed by her many newborn pics, but I just couldn't see that, my husband and I truly saw her as the epitome of perfection. Now she's really, objectively beautiful but it wouldn't matter if she wasn't because she's just perfect to me (as well as hardhead, stubborn, clever and generally gorgeous). All children should be loved that way, regardless.
