Thank you SO much for all your warm congratulations on the birth of our precious boy! Every comment has been read and cherished, and while I do intend to answer everyone individually at some point, we're a little short on time these days!
I was lucky enough to have silent labour, not feeling extreme contractions until 5 hours after my water broke. When things started in ernest, they moved fast though! I arrived at the hospital at 8cm, contracting every minute - I wouldn't recommend leaving it that long (too late for an epidural!) Jackson arrived via emergency C-section after I was in transition/pushing for four hours, labour stalled and he became distressed. Unfortunately, I suffered some complications and had an extended stay in hospital due to an infection. I've been home the last two weeks, and I'm slowly healing with lots of loving care from Shanan and my family.
I'm starting to get back to normal and I'll be back tomorrow with a card! Till then I wanted to share a couple of photos of our gorgeous boy - he is pure joy and I'm thankful to have such a chill, easy baby who is 100% healthy, feeding like a champ and growing like a weed!
Thanks for stopping by!
