After going 12 days overdue and having a 24 hour pessary, my waters broken and an oxytocin drip the little man, Henry Lucas, was born via emergency c-section at 14.04 on Saturday 1st February 2014. That sentence completely fails to convey the ups and downs and disappointments of the induction process, being in hospital (which I REALLY didn’t want) and fears of having major surgery but our lovely baby was worth everything and more and it could have been a lot worse!
At a week old he’s already started to show signs of a cheeky little personality – in the brief periods he can keep his eyes open for more than 2 seconds (milk is a most potent drug) – and we couldn’t be more smitten with him – but then I guess that’s kind of the point.
Presenting Master B…
Now I just have to stop staring at him long enough to get some sewing/crafting done – got a fair few chalkboard and peg people orders to get on with!
