I went into labour early on the sunday morning - my waters broke, but no contractions came. The hospital sent me home to see what happened, and if no contractions came, to come back at 7am monday morning to be induced. I was induced monday morning (hellish and horrible), and then our darling was born just after midnight that night, weighing 7 pounds 12 ounces, and 51cm long. It wasn't easy going - I lost a lot of blood, had dangerously low blood pressure, and fainted in the shower and scraped the living daylights out of my spine (luckily no more serious injuries than that). But I'm on my way to fighting fit now. We had four nights in hospital after she was born (Michael stayed too), and now we've been home for 2 nights, getting into a baby rhythm.
Michael and I have decided not to put any 'identifying' pictures of our baby girl out there in Internet world, but I do have a picture of her perfect little feet to show you:
Aren't they just the sweetest? She is such a darling.
Hope all your sewing is going well - I'm sloooowly getting through my blog reader!
