Welcome to the world Princess #2!!!! Born at 9:15am on the 6th February 2013. Weighing 7lb and 7oz.
Apparently, my labour and birth couldn’t have gone any more perfect…
I suddenly woke up and ran to the toilet just in time for my waters to break at 3:15am. This was something I’d never experienced – it wasn’t a gush of water with volume to drown in. It was a trickle; just like wetting yourself constantly. My OH didn’t believe me at first – but when I stood up and dropped the towel to the floor he soon realised this was it. Because of the Group B Strep we went to the hospital pretty quick.
It was a 5 hour labour with just gas and air. I’m actually so proud of myself.
P1 absolutely adores her sister – for now.
Visiting is over now and I’m sat breastfeeding my newborn. In a ward. With other mums and babies. It’s surprisingly peaceful right now.
