Martha Victoria made her grand entrance earlier this evening ... 8lb 13oz. Everything went smoothly and faster than we were expecting. In fact she was out less than half an hour after we transferred from Assessment to the labour ward.

Bobsmum got by on a TENS machine and gas'n'air. There wasn't time to think about anything else. She is woman, and boy did she roar. In a very good way.

One extremely proud hubby and daddy-of-three, signing off and falling into bed.

welcome to the world little Martha Victoria!

dizzydixies · 30/04/2008 08:21

will congratulate you on this thread too - you deserve it

PortAndLemon · 30/04/2008 08:24

Congratulations! I know bobsmum was a bit stressed over the hospital's VBAC policies, so it's particularly good to hear that everything went fast and smoothly.

Bobsdad · 30/04/2008 08:30

Thanks everyone.

In the end we needn't have worried, the midwife was much more relaxed about monitoring and birthing positions than the registrar had been. And seeing as everything went so well, and so quickly, we only ever saw the midwife.

Enjoy loyts of cuddles and hope you have a good sleeper!!

Congratulations on the birth of Martha. Lovely name!

Bobsdad · 30/04/2008 19:59

I'm told (by bobsmum) that Mumsnet protocol demands she come on this thread when she gets home and tells you all how it really happened, rather than the cut-down husband version of the tale I've given you.

We're hoping she'll be home tomorrow, so you may hear from her after that.
