Well, what a weekend!! My wish came true, and my beautiful Isabel Violet was born on Saturday 21st June as hoped, at 10.44pm weighing 7lb 5oz. I managed on gas and air and a small dose of pethidine and active labour lasted an hour and half, 10 pushes and out she came! It was the most amazing, exhilerating, frightening and intense experience of my life. I was totally in control and although it was seriously painful, I got through it, and only had a little tear, and came home Sun afternoon. When dh brought dd1 to hospital to see her, it was truly one of life's great moments. Will post more tomorrow! Love you all!
