A boy!

Our third child was born this morning.

Waters broke at 4am with an audible pop! First contraction at 4.20am. Baby born at 6.20am. I laboured in a water tub. Attended by 2 midwives, DH, and 2 female helpers (sister in law and our occasional nanny). S woke up early enough to see some of the late labour. A woke in time to see his little brother have his first feed.

Baby weighed in at 9lbs/4kg, 53cm long with 36cm head.

Mum feeling fine, a tummy wrap is making life quite bearable.
