Hi everyone..... to all for your lovely messages and thank u so much maccy for updating everyone. My boy is beautiful....i know i am biased a little but just so beautiful. I can't get enough of him. I came home on saturday afternoon - and we are just trying to sort out some kind of routine for us all!!! My 2 lo's love him too - although dd is starting to play up a little. keeps telling me to put him in his moses basket or whereever....basically step away from my mummy new little person!!! so......oh is in the bath.....my mum and dad have taken ds and dd out for a while, i have showered, washed hair, fed my boy and now have 5 mins or so to come and check on everyone and tell you about thursday!! it was all a bit mad!! are we sitting comfortably........rofl I woke up thursday morning with unbearable back ache. I really didn;t know what to do with myself....pains were coming and going every 5 or 6 minutes or so shock but because i didn't have back labour pains with ds i didn't think anything of it! My mum arrived at 7am so we could get up to hospital and said "are you in labour do you think?"!! well, yes i bloody was! The contractions got more and more intense and by the time we got to hospital i was convinced myself that they were actual contractions and not just stress like i had originally thought! The ward was sooooo busy and as we walked through i had this awful feeling that it wasn't going to be a very short wait. (by this time me and oh had already had 2 rows - one of which was because as we parked the car in the hospital i informed him that i had forgotten my notes and so we would have to turn around and go back home again! ) eventually the midwife came and checked me out and confirmed that labour had indeed begun and that she would find out when we could go down for my section - but it was soo busy that it may be a while. they didn't come for me til nearly 11am and i finally gave birth to my beautiful boy at 12.04. The section went really well, it seemed to take forever though - but all worth it in the end. Straight away he latched on and is feeding really well. Too well as oh keeps saying - last night he pretty much fed constant for 7 hours. he looks just like ds but with dark hair - ds is really blonde! 6lbs 11 too 3 weeks early! wow - he would've been a little bit of a monster had i gone full term with him. He is really long too and is filling all his normal sized baby gros. His feet are enormous - which is what were constantly getting stuck under my ribs!!! No wonder i did a lot of moaning!!!! so....what do you think girls......beautiful or what?????????
