    to my neice Carla weighing in at 7lb 2oz with NO pain relief and only 2 stitches!!!!!!

    Her waters broke at 7am (she had pains all through the night before though) and she gave birth at 9.40pm! She was pushing for 25 minutes and i saw it all!!!

    Carla is tiny and gorgeous!! She didnt cry straight away as they had a job puuling her out but she cried after 5 second (which felt like minutes!) and she is doing fine!!

    Im now both scared and excited that i will be doing it again in 4 months!

    I dont know but it was a bit scary as she delivered the head and struggled with energy to push the baby out (bearing in mind she hadnt eaten for over 24 hours cos she was scared of feeling sick!!!) and they had to drag her out cos she was a bit stuck (two mw's)..so i thought she would have more stitches than that...
