After posting this on Friday, which included a photo of my enormous (slightly overdue) belly, I promptly went into labour and gave birth to our beautiful Valentine’s babe early evening.
Thankfully Hubby was working from home as I woke up to mild contractions first thing. We didn’t want to get too excited as 4yo’s labour started the same way and lasted almost a week, but by early arvo I knew it was serious and action plan commenced. The girls went to my dear friends house for a sleepover, and she drove us to the hospital.
We got to the birthing centre at around 3:30pm, and our boy was out within three hours. Once again the midwives did a wonderful job and I felt completely confident in their capabilities. I was fortunate enough to not have any damage down below and after some sleep last night am feeling pretty good. I know the sheer exhaustion will hit me soon, and hard, but right now I’m enjoying the moment, and utter deliciousness of my brand new son.
We’re still in hospital, and there is more to this story, but I’ll have to share that another time. I just wanted to let you all know that he’s here, and say a huge thank you to each and every person that has tweeted or commented on my blog over the past few weeks wishing me positive birth vibes. Lady luck sure was looking out for me on Friday 😊
