mrsj update!

Hi all,

thanks for all the pms asking how things are!

I had my baby on March 5th at 6.55 pm. He was 7lbs, 8.5oz and we have called him Phillip Francis, Pip for short. He is absolutely perfect and we were discharged at midday the following day!

He was born in Abergavenny hospital - I had an awful labour and had to be transferred there by ambulance from Brecon, was given an epidural that didn't work and I think I used up Wales's supply of gas and air!

However, he was definitely worth it! As soon as he arrived I felt fantastic and have felt great ever since.

Thanks too for all the support during my horrible hyperemesis, it meant a lot.

mrsj (and Pip) XXX

KittyB's Avatar How marvellous! I was wondering if you'd had your baby yet, knew it was due...
Congratulations. On my behalf please kiss Pip (gorgeous name, so very Great Expectations - one of my favourite books - What Larks!) and deeply inhale the gorgeous baby smell on the top of his head and send it through the ether to me... oh if only they could bottle that smell - and the sound of a baby gurgly laugh.
Well done - clever you! Keep us up to date, and yes please - pics too.
