Not been on in a few weeks. Chloe Leanne arrived on the 14th March, weighing in at 9lb 7oz or 4.2kgs. She has a lot of dark hair and blue eyes. She is doing great – very fond of the bottle – takes between 4 and 5 ozs at a time and sleeps well. She has a bit of a cold at the moment – her big brother insists on leaving every door in the house open – including the back door. He was delighted with her – a little bit of jealousy here and there but nothing major.
I got my natural birth – arrived at the hospital at 6ish, send to antenatal ward around seven but had a race back to the delivery ward about an hour later – did not realise those wheelchairs moved so fast!!!!! Anyway, Chloe was born about 10 mins later. I took the gas and air for a few minutes in the delivery suite.
A few complications afterwards – no stitches with the fast delivery but I did start to bleed while in the delivery room. Both the midwife and my consultant were excellent and I was out again within two days. Did of course overdo it when I got home and ended up being sent to bed by the PHN who said that my blood pressure had gone up and the only way to sort was to rest. Easier said than done with a newborn and a two year old!!!!!
All going well now and household starting to settle a bit!!!!
