eleni skye arrived at 4:48am on sunday 03/04/05 weighing 6lbs14oz, and she is absolutely gorgeous. labour and delivery less so (16 hours contractions w tens and entenox, told at that point 3cm dilated, i lost it and bellowed for epidural, and then had exactly the opposite birth to the plan i had written out! epidural a joy when the effects finally kicked in, dd hauled out of me w ventouse 29 hours after the whole thing kicked in....), but all worth it for the amazing little creature . back in hospital this week with jaundiced baby who got worse before she got better , all v. upsetting, she was up in special care for a while, but all well now, we're home at last and very happy!
