Hi all our beautiful baby sophie jane finally arrived on 13th september. she was 13 days overdue and weighed 8lb 10oz. I was induced at 10 15 wednesday morning with gel had my first contraction at 12 15. At 1 30pm they were coming every ten minutes and the midwife went to get my antibiotic drip to set up. By 2 00 pm when she set my drip up they were every three minutes . I begged to be examined at 2 30pm and was told I was 6cm dilated and needed to be moved into the delivery room. My waters broke as they tried to get me to move from one bed to the other at 2 45pm and she was born at 3 02 pm. She is an absolute dream and has breast fed every four hours in the day and six hours at night since she was born. She is a very calm baby and doesnt seem to cry much at all. We came home from hospital today and apart from afterpains we are both really well.
