Luca, born today at 2.03pm after a speedy 2.5 hour labour, weighing 7lb 11oz. He's tiny, gorgeous and hungry!
Started to get pains at 11.30am, felt pokey enough to call m/w at 12.30 ish. Examined at 12.45 and was 6cm dilated. 10 minutes later I got in the pool, instant relief but contractions coming thick n fast. G&A arrived at fully dilated, used this for 2nd stage and boy was it needed! 18 mins later he was born. 10 minutes later placenta delivered naturally. All done and dusted!
