As you may have guessed from the radio silence over the last couple of weeks, baby Emma has arrived!
She was born at 3:06pm on Monday 7th December, weighing in at 8 pounds 12 ounces. Labour started at 2:30am the same day - I felt my waters pop and contractions were 3-4 minutes apart pretty much straight away. By 11am the pain was so intense that I went to the hospital, and luckily a pool was free soon after my arrival. I am proud to say I had no painkillers at all, except gas and air which only made me feel dizzy! The water definitely helped though.
We're now adjusting to life at home and looking forward to a magical Christmas! :)
