Foghorn Leghorn has a new nephew

My new baby nephew arrived last night 12.09am by emergency csection 2 days overdue.
It was a bit touch and go for a while, SIL went into hospital as she'd not felt baby moving, she went on a trace and there was no movement detected for 2 hours and an extremely irrativ heartbeat so it was decided they would break her waters - once they were broken menconium was found straight away so it was decided she needed to go in for an emergency csection. Baby Ben had the cord wrapped around his neck twice and under his arm so was quite distresssed. Haveheard this morning that the crash team were on stand by for when the baby was born and they actually had to spend 10 minutes working on his breathing before he was given the all clear. Aparantly the registrar was considering knocking SIL out as he was so concerned about how the baby may be and she was obviously extremely concerned and anxious.

Anyway, he is here now - safe and sound. Weighed 7lb 6oz and has a little scrunched up nose apparently. AM off to see him this afternoon

Thanks yellowfeathers
Have never been so scared in all my life, lord only knows how my DB and SIL must've been feeling. I said quite a few prayers for the little man last night

Congratulations, FL family!

Sorry it was so scary - enjoy your cuddle with him later on

Oh I will do hunker, going to squeeze in as many kisses and cuddles as I can. They are over an hour away so not particularly to get there often with DD about.

How was your cuddle, FL?

Congratulations. Welcome to little Ben!

It was lovely thanks Hunker and I got even bigger and longer ones last night as I was the only one there. He likes sleeping his aunty's shoulder and although he is only 7lb 8oz he is remarkably heavy after a while
Absolutely gorgeous though
