Well 12 days late Baby Talia Erin has made her appearance.

Contractions started at 1.30am very painful from the start called midwives straight away. They were coming really thick and fast but gas and air was good. MWs examined me and I was 8cms already but head was still high up so broke my waters and felt the need to push, she was born at 4am exactly weighing a staggering 9lbs 3ozs. Didn't need any stitches this time. Had very fast natural third stage too. Midwives were excellent and homebirth was fantastic, Talia been feeding really well too. Am absolutely delighted not to need to be induced.

Forgot to add big sister Abbie slept through it all in the next room, us all talking, me screaming like a banshee etc was lovely this morning them meeting for the first time videoed it, Abbie thinks she is a dolly (she's only 18 mo). Talia looks really like Abbie did newborn just a lot fatter 9lbs 3ozs v 6lbs 3ozs she's like a monster. DP got to see her being born which was great too.

Wanted to say a huge thank you to you all who have kept me sane for the past month while I have moaned and whinged.
